Soundings activity: January & February 2013

2013 is under way here at Soundings, and we’ve been busy as ever! Here are some project updates which tell you a little bit about the community engagement and consultation work we’ve been doing recently…


Soundings are carrying out the consultation for the proposed redevelopment of 200-222 Kings Road.

The site forms part of Cadogan’s Chelsea Estate and Cadogan are proposing to create a new mixed-use development, including providing a new cinema and pub on the existing site.

Soundings have carried out several pop-up street consultation events, and in December held the first exhibition in the consultation hub at 186 Kings Road. This involved introducing the key principles, presenting the findings from the pop-up events and gathering feedback on initial design concepts. A further exhibition and community liaison group meeting will follow in the next month.

In 2012 Soundings were busy gathering ideas from local residents, visitors and key stakeholders about the future of Eccleston Place in Southern Belgravia.

The consultation process is now complete and a final report is being compiled which will feed into Grosvenor’s masterplan vision.

On 1st February 2013 Pinewood submitted a planning application to South Bucks District Council (SBDC) for the expansion of the Studios.

Following 6 months of consultation, Soundings compiled the comments and views of the community and local stakeholders into the Statement of Community Involvement, which was submitted to SBDC alongside the planning application.

It is intended that the Community Liaison Group, who have acted as a sounding board for the design development, will continue to meet and discuss matters relating to the application.

We would like to say thank you to those who have taken part in the consultation process for the Development Framework for Pinewood Studios.
