Placemaking’ is a term that is becoming increasingly used but what exactly does it mean in the context of a community?

Placemaking is a process through which places that people want to live, work, or explore are created. 

From Spaces to Places has provided a good example of what this actually means. "A simple way to look at it is to compare it to something more familiar, like the concept of homemaking. In the same way that homemaking is the process of turning a house into a home, placemaking is the process of turning a space into a place."
