Places for People
manages over 300 homes at their St Paul's scheme in Bristol. Working in partnership with Bristol City Council and St Paul's Unlimited, almost £1 million has been invested into the regeneration of St Paul's Park, St Agnes Park and Brunswick Cemetery creating a 'green corridor'.

The award-winning regeneration initiative has created accessible, high quality environments in the heart of the city. It's also provided imaginative play and sports areas, attractive community meeting places and innovative artwork and sculptures. The works have transformed the cemetery into a bright and attractive garden but retained its peaceful and historic character.

At St Paul's Park a community space to relax and play has been created. A unique event space with ground anchor points has also been developed for circus performances and training in partnership with Circomedia, a local circus and theatre performance group. 

Following the regeneration, a series of community events were held to encourage public participation including the Bristol Do Cultural Olympiad, which attracted over 9,000 people for a programme of social, family and community celebration events.

St Paul's Park was awarded the Best Urban Green Space by the Local Government News Street Design Awards. St Agnes Park received a Planting Places Award and Brunswick Cemetery was recognised at the annual Landscape Institute Awards.

The regeneration as a whole has received the prestigious Green Flag Award, the national standard for parks and green spaces in England and Wales.
