We are delighted to announce that MyKnowledgeMap will be part of the High Street Task Force hosted by the Institute Place Management to help in the delivery of advice and guidance to local authorities and communities who seek to breathe new life into local high streets and town centres.
In a bid to revitalise high streets and town centres, the government has awarded £8.6 million to the Task Force consortium of high street experts, who share a range of knowledge and insights, including planning and design.
Commenting on the exciting news, Adam Doyle, Managing Director of MyKnowledgeMap said, “We’re incredibly proud to be part of a consortium that will support communities as they work to secure the future of their high streets. With the current climate, it’s more important than ever to ensure local towns are supported and ensure they are able to maximise potential for economic growth. We’re excited to see how this project will positively impact local high streets over the coming years.”
The Task Force are set to begin planning meetings this month, with the pilot delivery due date to start by September 2019.
Formed in 2006, the Institute of Place Management (IPM) is the international professional body that supports people committed to developing, managing and making places better.
As part of Manchester Metropolitan University, the IPM works with policy makers, practitioners and providers to identify the core skills and competences involved in the effective management, development and marketing of places.
