This guide from the Cabe team at the Design Council is for anyone involved in a public space project for the first time. 

All over the country, community groups are becoming involved in improving outdoor spaces. This guide aims to help anyone involved in a public space project for the first time.

It gives examples of great outdoor spaces led by community groups and highlights lessons from their experiences. It is neither a substitute for the need to employ an experienced design professional; nor does it provide a comprehensive guide to involving and consulting people. It seeks to inspire people to demand better places and in doing so challenges users of this guide to think carefully about leaving a legacy of excellence in the projects that emerge.
