North West Bicester is the UK’s first eco-town, proposing up to 6,000 homes with environmental integrity at their heart. It is being delivered through a partnership between lead developers A2Dominion and Cherwell District Council, and the first phase, the Exemplar, features 393 true zero-carbon homes, a school, community facilities and an eco-pub.
A2Dominion appointed Remarkable to devise and manage a robust, integrated communications and stakeholder engagement strategy. Involving residents is fundamental to A2Dominion as a leading social housing provider, and online channels have played a key role in creating a sense of community for the emerging eco-town.
Remarkable’s online activities:
- Creating the brand character for the eco-town
- Developing a responsive community hub website to grow in step with North West Bicester
- The website features video streaming, newsletters and a business portal for construction contract opportunities
Remarkable is supporting the masterplan consultation and the North West Bicester website will inform communities, stakeholders and the media throughout the process.
