Glad you clicked through but you’ll need to come back on Wednesday 29 June to find out about We Work. Trust us, there’s going to be some amazing stories showing how PlaceShapers up and down the country change people’s lives...
PlaceShapers have welcomed the Government’s consultation on a new “Right to Build” and the opportunity offered by the custom-build model to add to the delivery of much needed new homes across the country.
