The Shape Your Place project developed a network of community websites, combining a channel for fault reporting and consultation with local service providers along with community-led spaces for discussion and news:
Not everyone has the time to go to public meetings to discuss local issues with their community leaders and local service providers. Now you can use the ShapeYourPlace website to get involved from the comfort of your own home, or from a computer at a Community Access Point, library or community centre.
The ShapeYourPlace website has been developed for the residents of Wisbech and the surrounding villages including Gorefield, Leverington, Murrow, Newton, Parson Drove, Tydd St Giles and Wisbech Saint Mary.
