Camargue has worked with FTSE 250 listed developer and regeneration specialist St. Modwen for over a decade, providing support on a range of high-profile regeneration projects across the UK.
We are currently supporting St. Modwen and its joint venture partner, housing association Notting Hill Genesis, on a strategically important mixed-use regeneration site in Woolwich, south east London. The plans for Woolwich Exchange include hundreds of new homes, improved public realm, commercial space and the sensitive renewal of a listed covered market building for use as a new cinema. Involved in the project since 2016, our brief has spanned community liaison and engagement, project consultation, public events and stakeholder management, as well as scheme profiling and placemaking on social media and in local print media.
We’ve taken a proactive, positive and hyper-local approach to the brief. This has included supporting the roll out of a new brand and applying a youthful approach to communications, reflecting the area’s demographics and our knowledge of the community living and working there. As part of the programme, Camargue is acting as the link between the project team and existing community groups and initiatives – focusing on the sense of place in Woolwich and what the area’s future should look like.
The Royal Borough of Greenwich’s Planning Board approved the proposals in May 2021.
