During a season of global health concern and uncertainty, Sheffield council pioneered a city-wide project to establish healthier and safer living conditions for local residents for generations to come. Without the use of commonplace, the council would not have been able to garner such a rich data-set to map out the appropriate changes for each neighbourhood and town centre. Changes concerning a vast population require higher levels of participation. Choosing an advanced platform like Commonplace to conduct this engagement more than tripled the number of contributions provided, meaning the plans could be as tailored to the local needs as possible.
