Launching mid 2017

Throughout the Tour a recurring theme was ‘temporality’ as a way to make real what exists only on paper and is therefore difficult to conceive.

Also mentioned as part of this concept were more community-originated ‘pop-up’ concepts, such as Parking Day and Better Block. However, to address the issue of funding, this how-to aims to get funding allocated at a council level.

WHAT IS IT?

The “How To Get Your Park Approved” kit is a useful guide on how to overcome council barriers and processes to make a ‘temporary’, or ‘pop-up’ park become a regular fixture.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

202020 Vision will interview people within council who have successfully had new parks approved using the ‘temporary’ or ‘pilot’ methodology. Gleaning insights from both successful and unsuccessful cases, we present the best methodology as a ‘How-To Guide’ and disseminate it among member councils, encouraging them to test it to get their new parks approved.

WHY IT’S USEFUL

  • Council staff can learn from others’ successes and mistakes.
  • Establishes precedence.
  • Defines a replicable methodology that can be applied to a variety of spaces.
