Morphology-based co-production of place value in Huyton Village

To help with regeneration of the Huyton village centre, particularly the high street, we’d like to capture local people’s memories, stories and values on any building or spaces on the high street or in the village centre. This project aims to produce a digital database combining the physical characteristics of the place, its historical transformation and people’s values towards buildings and spaces. This will become an important tool for heritage management and regeneration strategies about the high street and village centre in the future.   

Three public participation workshops are planned in Huyton throughout April, May and June 2023. Local residents or visitors from all age groups and backgrounds are welcome to attend. In line with EDI principles, we particularly welcome young adults, elderly, people from minority ethnic groups and people with disabilities to participate. By talking about spatial changes and characteristics of the village centre, we will be able to start conversations about values people may hold in those spaces.
