Communication is key, so we’ve made some improvements
Improved communication should be the priority in bringing together the growing community at CB1.
This was the overriding conclusion from a workshop of 28 local stakeholders who met in July to share views and agree practical steps for enhancing the CB1 area for residents, businesses and visitors.
In response to the workshop conclusions, the development team has created a new CB1 newsletter which will accompany the new website in providing timely information.
Independent facilitators heard from CB1 residents, developers, building managers and representatives from organisations including the City Council, the police, Anglia Ruskin University, student accommodation providers Downing and Host CB1, as well as the housing association bpha.
All stakeholders were supportive of CB1 but identified some improvements that could be made to build the community. One of these was to ensure there are clear channels for all those concerned with the development to connect with the CB1 community, providing up-to-date information and enabling feedback.
In response to the workshop conclusions, the development team has created a new look CB1 newsletter which will accompany the new website in providing timely information about development progress, estate management, events, on-site amenities and contact details.
