Creating thriving cities

We all have our favourite cities. Maybe it’s the place you grew up in, the community you’ve made your home, or perhaps a holiday destination that’s stayed with you ever since. But no matter where it is, there is always something that makes it thrive.

We wanted to find out what it is that truly makes cities thrive. So we asked over 2,500 people, “what makes a thriving city?” so that we can work together to help make our cities better places for everyone.

People overwhelmingly spoke about the importance of creating opportunities; providing space to make connections; the impact of the environment; and the experiences that cities can offer.

We want all of our communities to get involved and let us know what you think makes a thriving city.

Your answers will help drive activity in our regions and make our cities better places to live, work and play.


Why do thriving cities matter to us?

At Bruntwood, we believe we can only continue to succeed and make a positive impact by being deeply rooted in our cities… which goes beyond property. That’s why our purpose as a business is ‘Creating Thriving Cities’. For our cities to thrive, we all - individuals, businesses, organisations and communities - need to come together.
