Wastes and Strays: the past, present and future of English urban commons

Project Details

Description

Wastes and Strays developed from a need to better understand those fragments of common or common-like land in urban contexts.

Through careful, multidisciplinary research into the historical development, present legal status, as well as public perceptions and future aspirations for urban commons, the aim was to enhance the public understanding of these valuable urban open green spaces, to encourage their use, and to better inform discussions and decisions about their future.

Work package 3 (future) run by Co-I Alessandro Zambelli used community engagement techniques to test theories developed from the historical and legal methods project work packages.
