…to have the opportunity to be starting work with two special towns.
🤳🏽 Running the ‘audit, engage’ phase of our #TheVacantShopsAcademy approach in Abertillery and Tredegar for Blaenau Gwent Council, but reflections on a first visit were about the strengths that this focus on the #highstreet of each has to draw on.
🎞️ Awesome, must-visit settings, striking #heritage buildings, a visibly strong sense of community, and for one town, a unique place in our collective history.
Both have challenges for sure as do all the places we’ve been commissioned in, but we’re really looking forward to heading back soon and bringing together agents, landlords, businesses, community and council in the place partnerships that we know get the job done quickest and most sustainably.
🤔 For #property and #placemaking colleagues who know one or both towns it’d be great to hear from you…!
