The Active Spaces project involved construction of six play spaces in existing school playgrounds, which would be open to local communities outside school hours. Bespoke, site specific designs were developed through extensive consultation strategies, with the aim of encouraging physical activity; particularly for those who are currently inactive.  This was delivered as a ‘pathfinder’ project and the sites have been monitored since completion and evaluated as highly successful.  Developing Projects provided full project management services on all six playground schemes.
