Community meeting places

Throughout our Love Grangetown consultation local residents talked to us about the need for more neutral meeting spaces and community centres in Grangetown.

Although many faith-based buildings have space for community events, local residents told us they would like to see even more sociable spaces which welcome everyone.

Grangetown residents have suggested the following ideas to create more community spaces. We're advertising the following projects throughout the University so we can work alongside residents to start turning these ideas into action. Watch this space for updates on project progress and new collaborations.
