Norwich City Council: Creating Space for Community

Members of Norwich City Enabling Team and Adam Murray of the Old Library Wood community group share their experiences of trying to enable community action, participation and control. 

The team have tried many different approaches on their "messy journey" and are still learning alongside citizens as they explore the meaning of real community power. 

This work was shared as part of Citizen Network's Neighbourhood Democracy project, in partnership with Compass, the Centre for Welfare Reform and the Deeper Democracy Group.

These are the slides shown during the webinar:

The webinar was recorded on 29th June 2020.
