Mike Saunders, CEO & CoFounder, Commonplace

Commonplace is a cloud-based service for cities, infrastructure providers, developers and communities looking to break down barriers to better, faster planning decisions. We enable our clients to connect with citizens widely and deeply, reaching the "unheard majority" in local communities.
Commonplaces public engagement platforms use Heatmaps and before-and-after illustrations as well as integration with social media, to give the widest access to facts and to opportunities for nuanced comment.
Commonplace also supports face-to-face engagement and offers immediate data interpretation through a client dashboard. All our websites have a built-in tablet mode and News Update feature with email distribution.
Commonplace has engaged over 170,000 people in 25+ cities, serving 65 clients through 130 projects. Clients and projects include HS2; Network Rail for a station co-design project; cities of Newcastle, Bristol, Norwich and London boroughs of Waltham forest and Southwark for public realm and access/connectivity projects.
