concreteaction.net is going live! Join us for our launch event, website
demonstration and social on the 3rd of September, 6.30pm to 9.30pm at
MayDay Rooms (88 Fleet Street, London EC4Y 1DH).
Concrete Action is a platform for architecture and planning
professionals to support communities fighting for a liveable city.
The project provides:
1: Anonymous leaks infrastructure to enable public access to development
and regeneration documents, easily accessible and searchable online.
2: Educational workshops with communities alongside the concrete action
“mobile planning advice unit”. We plan on holding two types of
workshops: a) to demystify the planning and design process, providing a
breakdown of the various stages of the planning process, and the
relationship between the stakeholders, including
council-developer-architect negotiations. b) to develop alternative
community led design proposals in close cooperation with residents.
3: “Translation” service and resources. An explanation and “translation”
of the planning process, including advice on action to be taken at each
stage of the process, types of companies and government bodies involved
as well as relevant documents and whether they are publicly available.
The concreteaction.net platform will collate and hold data relevant for
housing and spatial justice in the form of maps and other data
visualisations and make them available for use.
