In the final evening seminar of the Market Town project design collective Something & Son unveiled their University Town Charter, a document the draws together their thinking and research for their Market Town Commission 'Market Lectures'.

This document invites the online 'signing' of an agreement for the future:

In the year two thousand and sixteen on the twentieth day of the month of September witnessed by those here signed below to commit to enter into a process of ever greater union between Loughborough Market Town and the University of Loughborough and its constituents, we the students, staff and townspeople. 

Our vision is to bind University and Town in one vision and into one place under the name Loughborough University Town, which marries the best of both institutions and becomes the world's best university town. Where two become one. A town where we the underwritten, be we students, staff or townspeople, commit to work together to respect each other’s customs and to each be valued members of the community, to develop thriving businesses and markets, trades and public services and to extend our outstanding sporting and educational opportunities to all in Loughborough.
