Social value in the built environment refers to the social impact any organisation or project makes to its many and varied stakeholders. We examine social value activities with a focus on placemaking, and show how regional strategic influence, design, planning and consultant efforts align with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) 11, 13 and 16. We highlight how the agents collectively: help ensure that Nottingham is one exemplar city with a direct participation structure of civil society in urban planning and management that operate regularly and democratically (SDG 11.3.2), how their activities help improve education, awareness-raising and human and institutional capacity on climate change mitigation, adaptation, impact reduction and early warning (SDG 13.3) and ensure responsive, inclusive, participatory and representative decision-making at all levels (SDG 16.7).
