Community Mapping Project

The Kingston University Community Connectors are running a Community Mapping project of the Royal Borough of Kingston that aims to map assets within the community. A really important part of the project is about unearthing the culture and history held within the diverse communities across the Borough. Therefore, in addition to mapping existing community assets, the team also want to map the life stories of those who live, work and study in Kingston – to find everyday people with interesting stories and who deserve to be highlighted within the community.

At the end of the project, the KU Community Connectors will create an online map that will be a living record that the Community Connectors will continue to update with the help and guidance of the community.

This project cannot be successful without your participation. The student team have already walked the length and breadth of the Borough, and will now be running Neighbourhood Mapping Sessions, where they want local residents like you to bring their interest, enthusiasm and knowledge to have a discussion about their local area and the future of the Borough, as well as sharing their stories.

The Kingston Town Neighbourhood Mapping Session will be on Saturday 13th February from10.30am-12noon at The Richard Mayo Centre (Eden Street, Kingston, KT1 1HZ).
