Coproduction is raising the bar for the role communities can expect to play in how their homes and neighbourhoods are managed and change.
We have prepared a framework to aid local authorities, housing associations, community and resident led organisations, and others working in housing, urban development, and regeneration. It is envisaged as a tool for evaluating the health and effectiveness of coproduction processes; and as a guide to improving relationships between decision-makers and citizens and supporting new cultures of working together.
The document is based on two years’ work by our advisers, Sib Trigg and Rowan Mackay, evaluating coproduction practices, focusing on initiatives between LB Newham and community representatives on estate regeneration projects.
We are now applying this experience to all sorts of other projects and partnerships across London.
By increasing the capacity for coproduction within the built environment sector, our intention is to improve project delivery for all stakeholders and advance more equitable forms of urban development.
