Projects for the High Street include the backyards that support it and are connected to the High Street through alleyways. The yards currently form a network of neglected wilderness, parking, dumping grounds and workshops.


Proposals point out potentials to create new links -to the schools and residential areas beyond, including the Austin Estate. The links developed go beyond physical links; students worked with the women running the Austin Estate Sewing Club, which came together through events organised on the Austin Estate.


Events on the High Street have pointed towards potential future development, this included a paper engineering workshop for children, a gramophone installation, a printing studio and dance and parkour events.
