Groups / Places


As we emerge from the pandemic, how will we create the communities of tomorrow?

With levelling-up and placemaking rising up the political agenda at national, regional and city levels, the group is key to exploring new ideas around regeneration, planning and the built environment.

Working closely with the APPG on Building Communities, the group will explore how we can truly build back better and create the urban centres that people will want to live, work and play in over the medium to long-term.

The group will also explore the left-behind communities across the UK, and how our sector can play a key role in realising their potential and unlocking regional growth.

Through the policy forum and engagement with members, the group champions place and regeneration, and shapes ACE’s interactions with policymakers, evidence-based thought-leadership and ensures our industry is at the forefront of political discussions on levelling-up.

The group is chaired by Peter Hogg, partner at Arcadis.
