Group 07

This student-led team is working in collaboration with ‘ForTyldesley’, a community-led initiative, to propose designs for the redevelopment of a small green space along Tyldesley’s historic high street. The project will allow students to prepare and undertake a public consultation with key stakeholders and community groups, in order to develop and test themes and inspire design ideas. Students will collaboratively produce design proposals in response to the feedback collected from the community, creating illustrative visuals, drawings and models of the green space. Throughout this workshop, students will develop skills in sketching, model making (both physical and digital), Indesign, Photoshop and rendering softwares, in addition to valuable skills in communication, public speaking, and organisation through stakeholder engagement activities.

Our collaborator ‘FOR TYLDESLEY’ are a foundation, involved in the heritage action zones programme: a national initiative aimed at revitalizing historic high streets across the UK. Through its involvement, ‘FOR TYLDESLEY’ is contributing to the improvement of the high street, creating a more attractive, engaging and vibrant environment for people to live, work, and spend time in the town. The programme is being funded by the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government, with additional support from the National Lottery Heritage Fund, and is being run by Historic England. The High Streets Heritage Action Zones Programme is centered around three main components, including physical works to buildings, cultural activities and events, and local community involvement. Through these strands, the programme aims to support the repair and reinstatement of lost features of historic buildings, facilitate cultural activities and events to celebrate the history of the high street, and provide a platform for local communities to have a say in shaping the future of their high street. FOR TYLDESLEY's involvement in this initiative underscores its commitment to the revitalization of high streets and its dedication to improving the quality of life for local communities.

The Site is the corner located at the end of Tyldesley's High Street the A577, opposite St George's Church. The Site consists of an arced fence that gates the small park, with two benches on either end, multiple trees, and flowers.

The first week of action week will allow students to prepare for the public consultation, which is scheduled for Friday 12th May. As a group, we will design engagement tasks and activities for stakeholders in Tyldesley, encouraging discussion and feedback, which we will take forwards with us into action week 2.
As a part of the preparation work, students will construct a physical model of the site which will be used during the consultation and to showcase the final design outcome at the end of week 2.
There will also be opportunity throughout the week to have software specific tutorials with the 5th year students, to improve your skills ready for week 2!

In action week 2 students will collate the findings from the public consultation and work collaboratively to produce a final design for the scheme. The outputs from this week will include a full set of drawing plans, 3D visualisations and a physical model.
We are very excited to see what you all come up with!
