About Waymarking

Waymarking is a Community Interest Company (C.I.C.), Waymarking’s social mission is to support communities to lead local regeneration where they live and work. Our programme is primarily about enabling community-led and community-focussed planning, regeneration and economic development.

Key to our approach is facilitating partnership working between communities and private, public, creative and social sectors, to collaboratively and mutually regenerate their neighbourhoods, towns and city centres. When working with Waymarking, communities, businesses and organisations are recognised as experts in their places. They are given a voice, learn from their peers, develop community planning and organising skills and take an active role in shaping and influencing the development their neighbourhoods.
