Community consultation

for quality of life / CCQOL

Community Consultation for Quality of Life (CCQOL) is a major research project funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council to develop a new, map-based model of community consultation that takes place both online and face-to-face across the UK.

We have two aims:

1. To allow people to input into digital maps so we can measure and assess the impact of changes to their neighbourhoods. Used alongside data that assesses social and environmental value, this will enable us to gather data continually so we can: get a holistic view of land use; promote the use of maps and open data for for democratic decision-making in planning; widen participation to tackle climate change and social justice issues.

2. To develop best practice guidelines for doing community consultation and engagement.

On this website you will find information about the four pilot projects, as well as a review of current practice in community consultation and a programme of events.
