In 2016 HometownPlus was commissioned by Panacea Property Development to successfully engage and win the support of Wakefield City Council and local people for socially responsible development of a redundant college campus. This process involved community survey, public meetings, the composition of a detailed report on costs, funding options and prospective returns on investment in learning and sports facilities' upgrade, environmental conservation, heritage interpretation, social enterprise start-up, job and volunteering opportunities' creation.
