StreetBuilder makes it easy for citizens to co-create their own proposals for transport planning, public realm, masterplanning and neighbourhood planning projects at an early stage.
StreetBuilder has been specially developed to provide a unique, user-centred experience. Based on industry standards and user research, it helps communities overcome key barriers to participation in city planning proposals which can sometimes be full of technical complexities and jargon.
The app helps both citizens and city authorities develop effective and realistic urban planning solutions. It supports and fast-tracks urban and transport processes like data sourcing, analysis and early feasibility assessments, to immediately provide a concept validation of proposed solutions. This allows anyone in the community to comment on existing proposals and / or to put forward and shape up their own ideas.

The Future Fox developed the app to scale-up meaningful community engagement in planning, and will work closely with the local community around Michigan Central Station Impact Area, the City of Detroit and other stakeholders to explore novel ways to present solutions and to adjust the tool to maximise community participation and the development of transformational, low cost, viable solutions.
