Urban Vision provides professional planning, building conservation and urban design services to a wide variety of clients, ranging from government organisations to professional and national membership organisations.  We have also delivered many community-focused projects ranging from small scale support projects aimed at helping communities get their ideas off the ground to long term programmes with active participation from local groups.

Middleport Community Design Festival

Urban Vision organised this Community Design Festival on behalf of the Burslem and Middleport Local Forum, using monies from the Design Your Neighbourhood programme run by Design Council CABE.  The aim was to explore the possibilities for self-build housing development as a means of helping regenerate a former housing market renewal pathfinder area. 


Counting Our Heritage

This was an English Heritage funded project delivered by Urban Vision for High Peak Borough Council and Staffordshire Moorlands District Council.  The aim of the project was to carry out a Heritage At Risk survey of all 1,273 Grade II listed buildings in the two local authority areas using community volunteers. 

Pugin Bicentenary Celebrations 2012

This was a year long programme of projects designed to raise awareness and understanding of the legacy of the great Gothic Revival architect, AWN Pugin, in the bicentenary of his birth.  Based in the North Staffordshire town of Cheadle, which has a unique concentration of buildings designed by Pugin, the programme consisted of over 40 individual projects developed and delivered in partnership with the local community.

A summary of the project can be seen on the YouTube video below, made by Big Red Studio:
