Community Consultation Oxford
The UK team organised a Community Consultation event over a 3-week period with the local community in Cowley, Oxford to discuss Templars Square Shopping Centre.
Over two weekends last November the team talked to residents, community groups and politicians about how the destination could be improved.
The six-strong Redevco team have had great feedback on how investment could be made into the site as well as having an opportunity to meet residents and stakeholders for the first time since Redevco purchased the Centre. With such significant redevelopment projects, Redevco believes it is crucial – and market best-practice – to include the views and needs of the local community in the process, thereby striving for positive social impact throughout the project. We have therefore and will continue to consult with the Community at all stages of the pre-development process. This way we really create a future-proof building that services the community and its future generations.
“Around 700 people from the community took part in the event to share their views on the future of the Centre and the surrounding area. The community feedback will feed into our future development brief, so that the brief considers the needs of the local community and ensures that we have consulted with the Community at all stages of the pre-development process.”
