[one_half_last]Bootle has had a bad rap over years, but look again and you discover a historic town, still preserving its civic buildings, Georgian Villas and great character. The Scott:Brewster methodology seeks to discover the existing grain and strength of a place or situation before progressing, and in Bootle this have proven particularly worthwhile.
In contrast to the attitude of the Housing Market Renewal programme, we have promoted the surviving positive qualities, and looked to learn from the local community. We have gone on to make proposals for Bootle with the LJMU Post-Graduate Studio. Rather than re-tread the same ‘regeneration’ conversations of the recent and not so recent past we have worked with the additive proposition of ‘Bootle – Sustainable Town’. Our work has extended beyond spatial planning to incorporate place branding and graphic proposals.
The LJMU studio project has been well received and Sefton Council are considering a public exhibition of the work in advance of progressing more significant strategic work.[/one_half_last]
