We Made That has been appointed by Folkestone and Hythe District Council to deliver a Place Plan for Folkestone Town Centre, rebalancing the relationship between the seafront and the rest of the town. This work is especially relevant now as high streets and town centres are high on the agenda, as is the focus away from major cities and onto previously overlooked places.
While there has been vital investment in Folkestone’s creative quarter, it is important to develop a plan that will holistically consider the needs of the town in its entirety. To do this, We Made That has brought together a team of specialists, with transport and infrastructure consultants Steer; socio-economic analysts PRD; and professional licensing policy advice provided by the Night Time Industries Association. Fletcher Priest architects will contribute their expertise to the architecture of specific opportunity sites.
Working with the Council, We Made That and partners will be engaging with stakeholders, businesses and residents, businesses to identify opportunities to build on the inherent strengths of the town centre.
