Woolwich Exchange – sowing the seeds of grassroots support
Camargue has supported housing association Notting Hill Genesis and its joint venture partner St. Modwen 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 working with our design studio, JFD, to roll out 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.
The Royal Borough of Greenwich’s Planning Board approved the proposals in May 2021. We’ve since worked with the client team to promote meanwhile uses on site and maintain positive community engagement and placemaking ahead of construction.

St. Modwen Strategic Land & Regeneration
Camargue has brought our vision for Woolwich Exchange to life. Their communications strategy is fitting of the inclusive and positive regeneration we want to bring to the local area.
"From their strategic and creative input, to their counsel around the dynamics of the local community and their knowledge of the planning system, they’re a valued partner that has consistently delivered against our project objectives."
