• HAGS SMP provide a free consultation service; spending time at the start of the project, getting everyone “on board” is vital to the success of the project, so we recommend an initial consultation workshop with all interested parties to assist with the community engagement. Read more
• HAGSSMP can offer a Funding Service; we can organise a full appraisal of your communities needs to establish eligibility for gaining funding support. For more information or support on the funding service click here to find out more.
• Free play space bespoke design services; as part of the consultation process, we will produce several draft designs with plan views and 3D visuals until we finally reach consensus to a final design that everyone is happy with. Our designs are free meaning that you do not have to worry about or incur any ‘up-front’ costs for these services. Read more
