We’re back and ready for another exciting year at Hello Lamp Post! But, before we look towards the future, we’d like to take a step back and share some of our best moments from the past year. From new project launches to award recognitions, we’ll be showcasing some of our highlights and sharing a glimpse of what’s to come later this year!
With new technologies now available to create exciting experiences for all ages, how can they contribute to cost-effective engagement and more efficient service delivery?

AI - and GPT in particular - is very much in the zeitgeist right now. It's no exaggeration to suggest, as many have, that AI as we have come to know and use it in the last few years will go down as the biggest technological breakthrough since the emergency of the internet in the early-mid 90s.
Community engagement has never been more important to the water and utility sector. The water sector needs to re-build relationships and transparently communicate with their consumers. How can this be achieved, in a way that’s both cost-effective and inclusive to all?
Hospitals and other healthcare organisations will find many benefits associated with becoming ‘smarter’.
Smart hospitals use technology to improve service delivery, provide a better patient experience and automate tasks that burden staff time. One of the ways that hospitals can adopt smarter technology is by becoming interactive.
Let us start by asking you a question. Take a moment to reflect on your hometown or city. If you could pick any place, space or object local to you and make it interactive, what would you choose?
We believe every street object has the ability to serve people – whether it’s by sharing useful information, gathering insights or simply putting a smile on their faces!
Every place and space worldwide has a duty of care when it comes to supporting their community’s health and wellbeing. This goes for local government, cities, emergency services, healthcare providers, universities, and workplaces – the list is endless.
Waste management provides an economic challenge for every town and city in the US. And around the world, for that matter. At the end of the last decade, 82.4% of the US population lived in urban areas. That figure is expected to rise to an estimated 90% by 2050. This means that unless the government can tackle waste management now, the challenges will continue to place growing pressure on communities and the places they live.
The way that people communicate and engage with the public sector has never been more collaborative. Digital community engagement is key to widening participation and is allowing communities to be at the forefront of public decision-making.
Communities around the world are ready to collaborate with their councils. It’s time for more public sector organisations to join their counterparts who have already adopted these new technologies.
Since the start of the pandemic, footfall in some towns and city centres have decreased by up to 70%, and our local businesses are paying the price. The Welcome Back Fund has been introduced to provide councils across England with a share of £56 million from the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) to encourage footfall back to the high street and show support to shops and hospitality businesses, who need the support of consumers now more than ever.
Higher Education Institutions compete on various levels to attract students. Finding an institution that carries a good reputation has become increasingly important to students, as more and more people hold degrees and compete for compelling jobs after graduation.
Urban planning attempts to organise socio-spatial relations across different scales of government and governance. The planning process typically has two functions; managing physical development and planning ahead for future growth and development. While these functions appear to focus solely on physical development, they are also concerned with economic, environmental and social needs.
The importance of Smart Governance has been recognised as a fundamental necessity of smart cities as it creates a strong link between a government and its citizens. In the case of Hello Lamp Post we focus on how public services are delivered and better inform how governing bodies make their decisions based on the data derived from our playful and innovative solutions.
Smart cities are places where digital solutions are leveraged to enhance the use of traditional networks and services. Thereby the aim of smart cities is to increase the quality of life for the residents, improve sustainability, and benefit businesses.
