In February 2020 members of the CLT were invited to a consultation workshop to discuss the benefits they would like to see from the Picture House project. Their contributions were grouped within 4 themes – ‘Strength of community’, ‘Health and wellbeing’, ‘The building and the environment’ and ‘Jobs and the local economy’. This enabled a set of social value outcomes to be developed for each theme.
|STRENGTH OF COMMUNITY||HEALTH AND WELLBEING||THE BUILDING AND THE ENVIRONMENT||JOBS AND THE LOCAL ECONOMY|
|Strong local ownership||Culture and the arts flourish||Resilient/ sustainable design and infrastructure||Business is commercially viable and sustainable|
|Vibrant diversity of building use||Good mental and physical health||High quality public and green spaces||Decent jobs and opportunities for local people|
|Accessible to all – physically, economically and culturally||Health services are responsive to local need||The building celebrates local history and heritage||Entrepreneurs are supported and celebrated|
|Strong local identity and distinctive character||Sustainable transportation is celebrated||Healthy local air quality||Skills and knowledge transfers across the generations|
|Thriving social networks||Food is locally sourced and promotes good health||The building fosters well being||Young people have the skills, experience and knowledge for future work|
|Local needs and wants are recognised||The local supply chain is supported and grown|
The CLT were planning a further workshop to identify the opportunities and how to achieve these outcomes. Unfortunately the Coronavirus pandemic put paid to meeting face to face and instead members were invited to continue the consultation by email. The CLT is most grateful for the valuable contributions from members which enabled a strategy to be written, and next steps to be identified.
