In February and March 2024, we ran more than 30 workshops and asked you to tell us your ideas online for the new Redditch Colour Palette.

Why? Last year, Redditch residents told us they wanted to 'brighten up' the borough. We decided to run a campaign for Redditch people to come up with their own selection of colours to create a new colour palette that is about Redditch and that local people can use. Because people want to brighten up the borough, we want to create something that is vibrant and fresh, that is about Redditch's people and stories, and something that ultimately Redditch people can be proud of.

100s of you told us your Colours of Redditch. You described our connection to the places we’re twinned with, such as St Elizabeth, Jamaica, the iconic landmarks that make Redditch famous, and about your love for the green spaces that you spend your free time in.

In March, and alongside a panel of local people, we whittled down 100s of ideas to a shortlist of 12, and you voted for your favourites. Over a week at the end of March, around 900 of you cast more than 1,500 votes from all corners of the borough. This is a colour palette about Redditch and by Redditch people.

Now voting has closed, the artist is designing your colour palette, and we will launch it at a special event in May.
