Designs gain momentum

11th April 2011

Viewpoint and Wayfinder, our phase two designs currently operating in Callon and Fishwick, Preston, are continuing to build momentum.

Bespoke's Viewpoint design in action

Over the last few weeks we've had a range of local stakeholders ask questions on our Viewpoint voting device (for more information click here), ranging from forming new community groups to waste disposal. For a current list of questions, votes and responses, head to the bottom of this story.


Bespoke is really pleased with the numbers of votes received and are looking forward to seeing how future questions develop and are received.

Our Wayfinder digital signs, located in a community centre, on the front of St Matthew's Church and Contour Housing association office, are displaying community events and activities as this story is typed.


We've a handful of listings at the moment, but look forward to rolling access out to other groups over the coming weeks.

Our current Viewpoint is as follows:
