In this article, Heather Keam, Associate Director of Cities Deepening Community, introduces what a neighbourhood strategy is, its limitations and why it is important to centre the community or neighbourhood when we develop them.

This course is for individuals who want to make their neighbourhood a better place, on-the-ground staff to support residents to build a plan or municipal staff who have been tasked with putting a plan together.
