Concilio were appointed to work on ambitious plans to transform Cavendish Square Car Park into a subterranean destination like no other. Uniquely located within a renowned London Square addressing Oxford Street, Harley Street and Regent Street this four storey subterranean development creates a world first wellbeing destination incorporating healthcare, retail and commercial space.
Concilio put together a comprehensive and wide ranging stakeholder engagement and communications programme designed to ensure political and community stakeholders were aware of, and supported the proposals. This included regular meetings with West End Ward Councillors, New West End Company, the Marylebone Association and a significant number of interested groups from across Westminster and London.
The consultation also involved holding public consultation events in a marquee on the square itself, use of 3D-models and promotional videos designed to engage the maximum number of people possible. The process was designated to identify and mobilise supporters of the scheme and navigate the application through Westminster City Council. In April 2020 the application received unanimous planning consent from Westminster’s Planning Sub-Committee after receiving a number of supportive comments from Ward Councillors and stakeholders.
