• Phil Heaton on TV

    https://vimeo.com/17094886

    Phil appears roughly 5 mins into the clip. This extract from the Channel 4 series 'Kevin McCloud and the Big Town Plan' shows Phil Heaton's role in the regeneration of former mining town Castleford in Yorkshire, filmed for a 4-part series screened in 2008.

    The footage is from 2003 when Phil worked on the project and 2005 when Talkback returned to gauge the success of the projects. The extract shows two local parks being rejuvenated by Phil Heaton and world-renowned American designer Martha Schwartz, and their contrasting approaches to the task.

    The project involved the re-design of several key spaces in the town to attract investment. From a total of £400k investment by the local authority the project attracted £300m of private sector investment to Castleford.
