'SEE3' Community Regeneration Group
Improving local high streets by winning goverment funding.
Following the Portas Review into the future of UK high streets in 2011, Beep successfully won more than £200,000 in government funding for the South East London neighbourhoods of Forest Hill, Sydenham and Kirkdale.
Beep Studio wrote the business plan for the Community Regeneration Group ‘SEE3’, which was founded as an outcome of the funding.
The organisation brings together business owners, residents, and local authority members to improve the local retail environment.
The scheme makes imaginative re-use of empty premises to create new businesses, foster existing business and add to the vibrancy of the street. Phase 1 of the project completed in May 2014, and successfully demonstrated how small interventions can enhance a community, stimulate spin-off projects and improve the look and feel of local streets.
