Retail, Commercial and Mixed-use

Planning communications for commercial, retail and mixed-use developmentFrom complex site assembly to city and town centre regeneration, we work with developers and local authorities to bring redundant sites back into effective use. From retail and commercial development to mixed use regeneration schemes, we work proactively with the project team to engage with neighbours and stakeholders to support the planning application and then the build programme as the site comes to life.

Premier Inn, Epsom, Surrey

Chelgate Local is assisting Whitbread Plc, which owns Premier Inn, with community consultation and stakeholder engagement around the redevelopment of the Camrades’ Club in Epsom to create a new club and a 57-bedroom hotel near the town centre. The project was given planning consent by Epsom & Ewell council in 2016.

Cardinal Place, Victoria Street, London:

Regeneration of the north side of Victoria Street by Land Securities to create some 49,100 sq. m of offices in two buildings and 8,400 sq. m of retail and restaurant accommodation. Chelgate carried out political, community and stakeholder engagement for the project.

Malton, North Yorkshire:

Regeneration of the Cattle Market in Malton Town Centre for the Fitzwilliam Estates, to create an anchor supermarket, four retail units and a car park. Chelgate has handled the community and political engagement for the project, including mounting a concerted opposition campaign to a proposed large superstore on the edge of town centre edge. This new development, which gained significant local opposition, had the potential of sucking custom away from the town centre businesses.

Center Parcs, Woburn, Bedfordshire:

A new leisure village in Woburn required comprehensive stakeholder engagement and community consultation for several years prior to planning. It opened in the spring of 2015. Chelgate also handled a similar programme prior to the Longleat Centre Parcs back in 1992.

West Herts College, Hemel Hempstead:

Redevelopment of the existing college, while releasing some of the site for housing, for West Herts College in the centre of Hemel Hempstead. Chelgate handled the community and employee consultation surrounding the project prior to submission.

Chelgate also worked on the new Watford Campus, which was part redevelopment and part site consolidation, releasing one Watford campus for housing.
