Being able to offer quite specific information that people can locate on a big site helped us to create more targeted conversations that moved the design forward."
Lead Designer, North Tyneside Council
We can sometimes spend hours/days preparing for consultation events which might only give us 2 or 3 useful responses. The PlaceChangers platform has saved a lot of time and we are able to have much more targeted conversations, which is better for everyone involved.

A easy-to-use online consultation tool shaped by user feedback
PlaceChangers is shaped by feedback from clients and members of the public.
This is one of the best interfaces I have seen. Very forward thinking and great for usability.
