Gain a shared understanding of community priorities

Commonplace identifies what’s important to communities. It pinpoints the key locations and topics local people are talking about, making it easy to integrate feedback into planning decisions.


Community Heatmap

Allows users to drop a pin on the map and add their ideas.


Design Feedback

Collects feedback from the community using a list of bespoke questions.


Reach a broader audience

Townhall meetings tend to capture the opinions of a very small sector of the community at one moment in time. Commonplace engages with a broad audience, often over many weeks. We help you target parts of the community that don’t traditionally engage in planning issues. An example? 70% of our users are under the age of 45.  


Geo-Targeted Posts

Reach all parts of your local community with targeted social media posts.
