Cundy Street Quarter

Working together

with the community

Listening and consulting

We want our proposals to reflect local ambitions creating a new neighbourhood responsive to the varied needs of Belgravia both today and in the future. To achieve this, we have committed to an open dialogue with local residents, stakeholders and  groups.

To date, we have hosted two public events, one in April and another in June, in which we consulted the community on their priorities for the area and its future, as well as what they wanted to see come forward as part of the development. In early December, we will once again be consulting the community on our latest designs. Please see the box to the right for more details.

Feedback to date

We have met with more than 500 people and received over 1,500 responses to our online survey.

Public consultation

In December, we will be hosting three public events at 20-22 Pimlico Road, SW1W 8LJ (the former Luke Irwin shop) to share our latest designs with the community.

Wednesday 4th December 14:30 – 19:30
Thursday 5th December 10:00 – 15:00
Saturday 7th December 10:00 – 14:00

You said, we did

Complimentary uses

As we’ve developed our proposals, the local community said they would like to see a good mix of uses within the new development. In response, we changed the mix of uses to include a range of shops to complement the existing offer, such as a food store and a boutique cinema.

Residential feel

Many respondents wanted to maintain the residential feel along Ebury Street. Therefore, we have reduced the number of proposed shops along Ebury Street to retain the relationship with the surrounding homes.

Enhanced sustainability

In response to local priorities, we have strengthened our ambitions around environmental sustainability and included improved greening and biodiversity across the development.

Resident garden

Working with the residents of the Coleshill flats, we have evolved the design of Elizabeth Place Gardens to incorporate gates and a resident garden.

Servicing strategy

Following feedback in June, we amended the designs and servicing strategy to ensure no vehicular access is required in Elizabeth Place Gardens to maintain the pedestrian environment throughout the area.

Play space

We have committed to improving Ebury Square as part of the application, specifically to include new play space, after receiving feedback from local families that this was a much needed amenity in the area.

Height

In response to feedback on the initial proposals, we have removed one storey from the building on Ebury Square.

Maintaining the history

We intend to restore the historic street names to the area following feedback that this would be welcomed by the local community.
