Learn more about who took part and what we heard during phase one of consultation on Participate Kensington.
During the past two years of rolling lockdowns, we spent more time in our neighbourhoods than ever before enjoying local spaces and discovering new parts in our local area to treasure. We heard many valued living more locally and that the experience helped build neighbourly connections and show community capacity and strength in looking out for each other.
From 11 November to 22 December 2021 we asked you to reflect on this experience and share your thoughts on ideas and opportunities for Kensington and what makes it so unique.
From 22 March to 19 April 2022, we shared the draft neighbourhood priorities for Kensington to find out how well we’d captured the priorities, whether there was anything missing or if refinements could be made.
