HAVE YOUR SAY ON THE SPACES AROUND US
The Linmere Masterplan is to create a place where wellbeing is prioritised and outdoor living becomes a way of live. Residents will never be more than 5 minutes walk from public green space.
As these green and active spaces evolve over the next few years, it’s important to bring residents into the process and help shape the environments that encourage those living here to get outside and use them.
Linmere are partnering with the University of Bedfordshire and PHD student Olivia Flemons, in a project which will explore ways of connecting with residents to improve meaningful physical activity, physical wellbeing through active landscaping and social connections.
By making Linmere the focus of research, the hope is to create an approach we can apply to Linmere ourselves and for the University of Bedfordshire to take to other communities around the UK and help more communities develop active local environments.
For Linmere and Linmere’s Masterplan, this is a novel and innovative project which provides an opportunity to demonstrate our collective ambitions – that Linmere is a place to live, not just somewhere to buy a house. Furthermore, it shows that we’re not here just to sell front doors, but help residents form an active, thriving community.
HOW TO HAVE YOUR SAY!
The most important part of this research is our residents and what they have to say. The research is happening in 2 parts. Firstly a series of research groups are being conducted at the Farmstead. Details of the next focus group, with a link to take part, are detailed below. Running alongside this is an online questionnaire, which can be completed at any time. Links to the online questionnaire are detailed below.
Every participant over the age of 18 will be entered into a draw to win £100 of shopping vouchers. Term and conditions apply, detailed further below on this page.
Focus group research
The next focus group will be held at the Farmstead Halls on Friday 13 October, from 7–8:30pm. To register your interest in taking part, please use the link on the panel below, to email Olivia Flemons, our research leader. We warmly welcome anyone joining us to have their say!
