The Malden Manor Community Project is an innovative scheme which involves Kingston Council working with local residents to improve their quality of life.
This community-based project was launched in Autumn 2013 and focuses on the Malden Manor area – including Sheephouse Way and part of South Lane – with work coordinated by Kingston Council.
For the first stage of the project, we worked together with Kingston University to gain an understanding of the specific factors combining to create different sets of living conditions in Malden Manor – from the point of view of people living there.
We spoke to a large number of community groups and local representatives, setting the scene for Kingston University to conduct community research which used innovative methods such as photo diaries to really engage the community and find out what they thought of the area.
The results of the University’s community research have now been published in the Final Report of the Malden Manor Community Project, which is available to download.
We are now working with a Steering Group of local people to take forward the recommendations outlined in the report but would like as many people as possible to be involved in the project, so if you live, work or study in Malden Manor and would like to be part of the Steering Group, attending meetings or having your say online, contact us.
