Forest Hill Vision

Place-making workshop defining a vision for improving Forest Hill town centre.

•This one-day workshop harnessed the analytical and creative skills of the local community, supported by local architects, urban designers, landscape architects and similar professionals along with civic leaders and traders. 

As a founding member of local regeneration group SEE3, Beep Studio's Ed Holloway initiated the workshop, with Hillary Satchwell representing the Forest Hill Society. The workshop received support from the Greater London Authority's Outer London Fund

• Review of overall vision and next steps

The sites and areas under examination included:

The workshop aimed to:
• Encourage place-making projects
• Stimulate regeneration projects

• Inform Local Plan policy guidance

Beep Studio collated the results of the day in a summary document, which was circulated to interested parties.
