Placemaking is about creating vibrancy and inspiring people to think differently about a space. Through trialling new ideas, we can transform spaces into memorable places where local communities feel a sense of belonging.

As part of exploring placemaking in Maling Road, we have worked closely with the Maling Road Traders Association to do just this, bringing the strip to life in the evening by implementing a creative lighting activation.

Until January 5, you can head to Maling Road after dark and experience a lighting display, with the uplighting of some iconic trees in Theatre Place and on the corner of Canterbury Road.

To compliment the tree lighting, participating retail businesses in the area are showcasing their festive shopfront window displays which have been enhanced by specialised lighting as well.

To stay up to date with the next stages of placemaking in Maling Road, sign up to our mailing list.
