Nothing has given a more acute sense of the place we live than the challenges presented by COVID-19. The importance of Home has been at the forefront of all of our minds over the last year, but our geographical boundaries and the public services and businesses that operate locally have also come to the fore.The pandemic has served as a timely reminder that space, layout and connectivity all have a big bearing on our ability to adapt to changing circumstances, be that health or economic.We have also seen the striking images of deserted town and city centres, and fundamental questions have been asked about how we interact with the places we live. Placemaking is a word that we hear used often in housing, and one which means many things to many people. Fundamentally, it is focused on people,to ensure that we deliver inclusive, socially connected and vibrant communities.In 2020, the Design Commission for Wales and Welsh Government launched a Placemaking Charter, to strengthen the focus on placemaking in policy and practice in Wales. It aims to provide a common understanding of the range of considerations that go into placemaking, and as signatories to the Charter, CHC is committed to sharing this learning and embedding new approaches in the housing association sector.This conference will explore what Placemaking means for housing associations, how it can be delivered in practice, and seek to gain inspiration from elsewhere. What have we learned over the last year, and how can we build places that people want to live in?
