Uppingham First comments on what will be the audience for the new Uppingham Portal 

Our audience is the local community, businesses and visitors (physical and online). The message is that Uppingham is a great place to live, work, play and visit. 

The proposed portal and integrated app recognise that the sustainability of market towns and their future economic and social wellbeing requires the creative use of the latest technology to ensure ease of access to community services for all. It will nurture civil society, encourage local shopping and trade with local businesses, and facilitate a warm welcome and appropriate support for physical and online visitors. 

The portal’s ambition is to communicate that Uppingham is a desirable physical and virtual destination with a heritage appearance, modern infrastructure and easily accessible community services. Its initial gateway will have six areas of focus and an offer of ‘Welcome, how can we help you today? Are you looking to access a local service or community group, shop, visit or stay overnight, live here, invest here or simply browse the town’s offer?’

Uppingham First has been invited to be part of a new neighbourhood planning ‘design’ initiative led by the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government (MHCLG) and national community charity Locality.

A new toolkit is to be prepared that will help groups preparing Neighbourhood Plans to define and promote good design.   This will allow them to influence the form of new development and positively plan for change, whilst preserving community values. 

The initiative will take the form of two multidisciplinary workshops, the first of which is to be hosted by AECOM in London. AECOM is a global network of experts working with clients, communities and peers to develop and implement innovative solutions to a wide range of design challenges.
