Welcome to PlacesMatter!

We are an organisation devoted to generating a strong sense of place in living, working and leisure environments throughout the North West.


Places Matter! works across the public and private sectors to drive up the skills and knowledge of all those involved in new development, promoting good design and encouraging strong client leadership.

The Places Matter! remit is to understand the economic case for promoting good design, ensuring project developers and managers provide strong client leadership.

Much of the Places Matter! programme is delivered with partner organisations including RIBA North West.
