Consultation Client Needs Nisha Gandhi Robert Wright Kateryna Vasyliushchenko “One of the marvelous things about community is that it enables us to welcome and help people in a way we couldn't as individuals. When we pool our strength and share the work and responsibility, we can welcome many people, even those in deep distress, and perhaps help them find self-confidence and inner healing.”

― - Jean Vanier, Community And Growth Josh Reed Sam Maindonald ` SWOC Map Rose Garden, Gotts Park Survey Online Survey Effectiveness:
Online, available anytime, easier to analyse digital results, no printing costs.
Only as effective as advertising is, most of our target audience probably didn't want to put in that much effort. Flyer Facebook Group 3 Responses 46% Participated in Mailing List Effectiveness:
Easy to communicate with members, easy to information.
Not very popular with our target audience. Members 5 Effectiveness:
Visually analyse what people think of the area, interactive, colourful, eye-catching, creative.
Limitations to the selection of badges, time-consuming. Effectiveness:
Visual value, quick.
Didn't grab as much attention as other methods, similiar to SWOC map but written. Effectiveness:
Easy to read, informative, printed in different sizes, information tabs for public to take links from, takes time to handout/pin up, permissions.
No control over who takes the public flyers down. 1. For the rose garden to become an additional facility for the TCV volunteers to work on personal and practical skills. Some volunteers may not feel ready to start a full range of qualifications. Therefore TCV considers that all volunteers should have a choice of increasing their abilities in a tailored training program that helps them build confidence and gain valuable skills. 6. To reduce the issues of vandalism and anti-social behavior within the local community. 3. To increase the security of the rose garden without any conflicting issues such as community upset due to denying entrance to the local community at certain times of the day through out the year. 5. To create a suitable environment to enhance food growing on a small scale, i.e. allotment plots and editable plant growing to create interest and skilled learning opportunities and users of the garden. 4. To create a place for activities and a setting to host small events throughout the year, attracting all members of the community. 2. Opportunity in the future to supply coffee and small snacks to the community and volunteers working in the rose garden. This is proposed by opening an outlet which it clean, safe and environmentally friendly, which above all considers the sensitivity of the rose garden’s historical values. Natural surveillance DESIGNING TO
REDUCE CRIME: 3. DEALING WITH ANTI-SOCIAL BEHAVIOUR IN GREEN SPACES Anti-social behaviour can mean different things to different people. This can range from criminal activity, which is a police matter, to over exuberant youth activity. The Home Office has defined anti-social behaviour as:
‘Any behaviour which causes, or is capable of causing nuisance, harassment, alarm or distress to persons from a different household!’ Making hanging baskets and containers
Vegetable and fruit production
Garden maintenance
Plant production and propagation
Craftwork and construction
Retail work, including firewood and Christmas trees
Work in the community
We encourage our workers, as they become more skilled, to undertake more complex tasks and gain relevant qualifications Was formerly part of the Bishop's Palace and also includes an Orchard, Woodland and courtyard. The charity operating the centre provides educational and occupational opportunities for people with learning and physical disabilities and young offenders.

Since 2009 North Yorkshire Aggregates Grants Scheme has helped fund a range of projects at the Walled Garden, including the reinstatement of walkways through the grounds, management of the orchard and planting native broadleaf trees.

Work has also included the redevelopment of the courtyard buildings to maximise the workspace available so that members can develop a wide range of horticultural skills and increase their self confidence and employability. The final phase of work, currently on-going, will see the creation of a new shop and visitor centre open to the general public. 2. Ripon Community Link Walled Garden WHAT’S A PHYSIC GARDEN? An enchanting walled garden in Chelsea where the city’s apothecaries tended exotic species from around the world.
It subsequently became one of the most important centres of botany and plant exchange in the world. Transforming a derelict site into a pop-up garden of medicinal plants! 1. Urban Physic Garden Conservation
Food production
Antisocial behaviour
Children’s play area DESIGN CHALLENGES: GOOD PRACTICAL EXAMPLES Since 1999, South Somerset District Council has helped communities plan, fund and construct a range of facilities: Now work has been carried out to make the park more open and visible - pruning heavy shrubs and improving lighting - and deter trouble-makers. As a result, the park is much more welcoming and feels safer so that local people of all ages can come and relax, in turn making it less attractive to those who might want to misuse it. HILLSIDE PARK, ISLINGTON Creating floral displays for local businesses
Maintaining gardens for private houses and local organisations
Garden makeovers
Active involvement in the “Ripon in Bloom” project – providing and maintaining award winning floral displays
Parish caretaking – we work with several local villages to assist them to improve their environment WE PROVIDE THE FOLLOWING
SERVICES IN THE COMMUNITY Environments for supporting different types of plants were built, including the pond rock garden that has been listed Grade II* and is the oldest rock garden in England opened to the public. The location was chosen as the proximity to the river created a warmer micro climate allowing the survival of many non-native plants - such as the largest outdoor fruiting olive tree in Britain. To provide horticultural training and work experience in a supportive and friendly environment.

To access the local community as part of our daily work

To enable individuals to progress, develop and gain accreditation, enhancing their skills and confidence. The garden and visitor centre is open to members of the public free of charge and sells a range of plants, hanging baskets, vegetables, fruit, craftwork, logs, Christmas trees and wreaths. The garden also manages all planting and maintenance for Ripon in Bloom. Photo & Text Effectiveness:
Easy to fill in, easy to understand, quantitative, space to add opinions, quick, anonymous.
Some questions can be mistaken without background knowledge. A wide range of activities are available to suit everyone: In recent years the park had suffered from anti-social behaviour including illicit drinking, drug-taking, and late-night noise. The Response What we gained:
We gained a valuable experience from learning and practicing consultation techniques. We received overall good feedback and responses from the community, and had a surprising turnout.

Doing a pre-consultation whilst flyering proved successful, as it was the reason we got to liaise and use a local Cafe in a popular area in Armley. What we did:

30 Surveys
80 Flyers
25 Posters
Flyering session
One-Stop and Cafe Involvement
6 hour Pre-consultation
3 hour Consultation
Hollybush Consultation A physic garden is a place where plants with medicinal properties grow. For thousands of years people have been using plants to cure all kinds of ills. London’s oldest botanic garden, Chelsea Physic Garden was founded in 1673 by the Worshipful Society of Apothecaries for the purpose of training apprentices in identifying plants. Still open, the garden has always been a green-fingered physician’s dream, concerned with the collection, study and dissemination of plants with medicinal value for over 300 years. Today Chelsea Physic Garden is still dedicated to promoting education, conservation, and scientific research. AIMS: Survey Results Our results show that the
majority of our consultation members lived within a two mile radius of the garden. ACTIVITIES: In the white space on the margins of the survey, people wrote comments which we were able to make Word maps from. The park, in the north of Islington, has new natural play features for children, a new ball games area, wildflower-covered hillocks and new expanses of grass. BMX tracks, skateboard,
ramps, goal units,
multi-use games areas,
youth shelters etc. These are aimed at engaging young people and reducing crime. Working in partnership with Hyndburn Borough Council, Lancashire County Council, the police, and the Youth & Community Service, the ‘Friends of Mercer Park’ want to encourage the positive use of their local park. As part of the borough wide Safe Place/Safe Space initiative, Hyndburn’s first youth shelter was in Mercer Park. The Friends were also involved in refurbishing a previous skate ramp project and arranging workshops with professional skaters. The following year the park area was targeted by a detached youth work team, engaging young people to tackle crime and disorder and find out what young people wanted.

It also showed that a cafe would be popular, and having more facilities such as seating, lighting and activities would bring them more to the park. Many expressed the issue of 24/7 access. With mixed views, most agreed a park watchers should be present. The only survey was advertised through the Facebook page and the flyer Pre-consultation Before and after our consultation, we got the chance to walk around Armley handing out flyers and getting a first hand view of popular areas.

During a conversation in a local centre (One Stop), we met a member of the staff from the library who showed us an image of herself as a child in The Rose Garden, when it was in full bloom. This helped us connect local people to the garden through memories - which is another way to fuel engagement with our project. A friendly conversation with the local owner of Copper Kettle Cafe, turned into her offering space in the front for our consultation. This turned out to be a better location than Tesco's, due to more space, foot traffic and involvement. Anti-Social Behaviour Strategy - Bracknel Forest. 2012. .

The Conservation Volunteers (TCV) helps hundreds of people each year by reclaiming local green places. Through their environmental projects, and with over a network of 2,000 community groups, they succeed in creating long lasting relationships with the communities every day throughout the UK. Their fundamental idea is to help people take responsibility for their own local environments. Volunteers can attend at the own pace with the potential to gain valuable personal skills and practical skills in return. Hollybush Having the opportunity to visit the TCV main base in Hollybush also helped with our consultation. We could see what activities the volunteers did and a brief function into how they co-ordinate their facilities. This will be useful when it comes to looking at setting up food production and how working gardens function. We also got to see some inventory they have on their site i.e. green house's, large seating area, locked storage areas, vehicles etc. Site Sketches Location Walled Garden Leeds Kirkstall Main Park

(Towards the 1960s tower blocks and St. Bartholomews Church Site Appraisal Spaces should be planned to foster visibility and enable people to be seen, by designing clear views and avoiding concealed spaces and traps. As well as allowing more effective policing, clear views encourage surveillance by the various users of the open space. Naturally, the greater number of users, the more effective this surveillance can be. Spatial hierarchy arising from increased usage deters delinquency and reassures users. Isolated or remote locations convey a sense of insecurity and provide ideal conditions for crime. Landscaping Clear definition of spaces fosters a positive perception of the space, reduces zones of conflict and minimises abuse. (E.g. establishment of boundaries based on uses: ball games, age defined play areas, etc). The definition of specific areas helps foster a sense of ownership and responsibility. Lighting This includes lighting, fixtures, planting and signage. Such elements can either provide ideal conditions for crime or in contrast, can enhance the safety and welcoming nature of public spaces. Adding a note of caution, the paper warns against trying to make a space attractive and welcoming if it is fundamentally unsafe. is a mechanism where behaviour is controlled by the users themselves. It works by deterring delinquents and reassuring users, developing more usage and human activity. It encourages use of spaces at different times of the day and concentrating usage in the same location. Parks, green spaces and play areas should be designed with children in mind. Unsupervised play areas should be visible, not hidden behind walls, high bushes or hedges and located where people pass by regularly. obviously contributes to visibility. Fixtures and planting can be used to direct and channel users as opposed to hampering visibility. Signage enables people to find their way, and reduces their sense of insecurity.
