Meet The Project Delivery Team
These are the people and organisations working together to develop and deliver Manchester’s first fully filtered ‘active neighbourhood’
Levenshulme Bee Network Advocates
At the core of this project is the community. Throughout the process we have strived to develop ways that the community can take ownership of the project. Some people are able to take on supporting roles and dedicate a lot of time supporting the overall scheme (inputting data from the Levenshulme community street audits for example!) Others have been instrumental in developing project areas (like local walking buses and open street trials) and some have been busy writing summaries of crossing issues to feed into the filtered neighbourhood area. We consider these people part of the team, no matter how little or much time they have to dedicate. It all matters.
