Grosvenor Britain & Ireland is launching a consultation on a new residential-led, mixed-use neighbourhood Cundy Street Quarter in Belgravia.
The public is invited to learn about the new development and give their ideas for its future at 198 Ebury Street, SW1W 8JD on the following dates:
Wednesday 3 April: 12pm-8pm
Thursday 4 April: 11am-3pm
Saturday 6 April: 9am-3pm
Paul O’Grady, Location Director at Grosvenor Britain & Ireland, commented: “Our ambition is to create a new inclusive neighbourhood that meets the needs of residents and businesses today whilst ensuring that it respects the area’s heritage and will stand the test of time.
“Through a sensitive but comprehensive development, we can deliver a significant increase in much-needed housing for Westminster and more affordable homes as well as consider new uses like senior living.
“By investing in the surrounding streets and squares there is also an opportunity to for us create new amenities, better public spaces and job opportunities.”
Grosvenor wants to encourage broader and deeper community engagement to ensure it can deliver positive change for the community now and in the future. To help achieve this, the business has started its engagement earlier than usual to allow it to incorporate benefits the community want to see locally in the initial designs.
Grosvenor is using Built-ID for community engagement, which enables participants to vote on key elements of the proposal, gain continual feedback on their input and influence in the decision-making process.
Paul O’Grady added: “Local communities are increasingly sceptical of how well developers listen, and respond, to their ambitions and needs.
“We know that communities want early and deeper input into development proposals and to understand how their voices have been heard. Our ambition is to broaden and deepen opportunities for engagement at every stage and clearly demonstrate the influence their input has had.”
