ZCD have led a truly integrated youth engagement programme, with the rest of the team learning alongside, carrying out 11 engagement sessions and allowing over 100 young people to have a voice and an impact on their future neighbourhood.

Working with ZCD has been fundamental to bringing the

conversation with local young people to the fore of the design process at Aberfeldy. It is as simple as that. This has deeply shaped our thinking and the masterplan itself.

Our students have felt empowered throughout this whole process and their views have been listened to by the team of architects and most excitingly our students’ thoughts and visions have been included in the regeneration plan.
