Edmonton Green Shopping Centre, Enfield 

 1,500 new homes + commercial space 

Concilio provided strategic, political and engagement support for Crosstree in support of their proposals for Edmonton Green Shopping Centre, Enfield. The 26 acre site is the heart of the Edmonton community, housing a covered market and a successful shopping centre that has over 1 million visits a month. It is widely recognised within Enfield that the centre is outdated, but that the unique mix of local stores for the community needs to be maintained, alongside the desire from many in the community for more ‘High Street’ stores and an evening economy. Utilising our unparalleled knowledge of Edmonton, its community and politicians, Concilio helped Crosstree to successfully navigate the political process and secure a planning consent for 1,500 homes.

The Old War Office, Westminster

Concilio has supported Westminster Development Services - a JV initially between the Hindjua Family and OHL Desarrollos - since they purchased The Old War Office from the MoD in 2016.

The initial planning application involved considerable engagement with neighbouring Whitehall Court, Councillors and many MPs, Peers and associations who have connections to the Military and therefore the history of this prominent building.

Following consent being granted we were appointed to Chair the Community Liaison Group, which we have done throughout the entire development process.

Uplands Business Park, Waltham Forest

1,800 homes plus stacked industrial and leisure 

Concilio was appointed by NEAT and BlackRock to provide engagement and consultation support for the redevelopment of Uplands Business Park on Blackhorse Lane, Waltham Forest - located in SIL.

Initial survey work with local residents made It clear that the community and politicians had an affinity to the current space, using the many taprooms and food outlets that are mixed in with the industrial spaces. It is seen by many as a reason to live in the area, though there was also a recognisition more homes are needed in the Borough.

We devised the strapline ‘Connecting Industry to Culture and Housing’ to show that we are maintaining the employment space, enhancing the culture and providing housing. Emphasising this over a wide-ranging consultation programme has seen significant support for the proposals.

Centre Court, Wimbledon

Mixed-use redevelopment of the shopping centre

Concilio has been appointed by Romulus to undertake all community and political engagement as they seek to transform the Centre Court Shopping Centre, Wimbledon. Located next to Wimbledon Station, the Shopping Centre is tired and in need of re-positioning. It’s prominent position means that there is considerable interest in what is being proposed from a wide range of political stakeholders and community groups. A key focus of the communication is to show how the new Centre will support local businesses and be far more sustainable, including an urban farm, growing mushrooms through waste coffee from stores and beehives on the roof.

To date there is considerable support from the community for the new future of Centre Court.

Queensway Parade

Residential, office and commercial development on Queensway

Concilio was appointed by MARK to undertake community and political engagement in support of a major redevelopment on Queensway.The current residential buildings on site are of poor quality and the commercial units are not suitable for modern tenants.

Over the course of two years Concilio undertook numerous rounds of consultation and meetings with the local community, politicians and stakeholders. Prior to the scheme going to Committee, a change in administration meant a different focus was needed on affordability and sustainability, especially given the intention to demolish the existing buildings. Concilio provided strategic advice to the project team and planning consent was granted by Committee in 2023.
