Prior Deram Park

Plincke were appointed to prepare outline proposals to Stage D over a 3-month programme of design development and stakeholder engagement. The scheme consists of a new community park in Canley, Coventry.

Three design options were developed following an initial ‘hot or not’ event where local residents voted on a range of park improvements based on reference images. We then used models and visualisations of the options, rather than plans, to increase the level of visual accessibility in the subsequent consultation.

To stimulate involvement, we developedĀ a design-your-own-park toolkit that encouraged more than 30 residents to explore a park design. Further consultation was undertaken with target groups including school children and the very elderly.
