The community consultation CCQOL project at the University of Reading builds on existing relationships with the Moorgarth Group who manage the local shopping centre in Reading- Broad Street Mall, and Reading Borough Council. The shopping centre has been a focus for discussions about a new Urban room- as a community consultation space . The School of Architecture at the University of Reading has designed and built a series of pop up Urban rooms around the University campus and will be building on this work to install a pilot ‘urban room ‘ in the local shopping centre. The School is part of the Urban Room network who support a range of different approaches to the idea of urban rooms as spaces for local communities. In addition , the University has been working with the Reading Borough Council on Reading High Street Action Zone project.
