Community (asset) mapping is a tried and tested way of identifying what is great about an area. We've put together tips for those wanting to carry out an community mapping exercise as part of the first stage of Love It? List It!

Under normal circumstances community mapping provides a great opportunity to bring people together to discuss what it is that they love about their area drawing on their local knowledge. Clearly that’s not possible under the current circumstances – but what you can do is start a conversation with branch members about what they value and draw up a shortlist.

Action Points
  • Check your council's existing ACV list
    Avoid duplication & see whether there are any listings which need to be renewed.
  • Check what information your council requires
    Different councils have different information requirements.
  • Draw up a shortlist of ACVs to campaign on
    Choose a geographical selection.
  • Send the shortlist to HQ
    We'll put the digital petition together for you which you can campaign on.
