Elm Grove Masterplan
Developing a Masterplan for Elm Grove
In April 2017 Community Architects Levitt Bernstein were selected to work alongside local residents, local businesses and the Council to look at options for reshaping Elm Grove Estate and the immediate surrounding area.
The vision for Elm Grove was to create a livable and attractive neighbourhood, for both existing and future residents, with safe and well-overlooked spaces, streets and improved homes for all.
Five workshops were held, along with a site tour arranged to show residents examples of other regenerated estates across London. During the engagement with the local community we discussed what works, what doesn’t and their preferences for the future of the estate. This information was used to develop the preferred emerging option for Elm Grove, which was presented at an exhibition in March 2018.
Workshop 1 - Saturday 24th June 2017 and Thursday 22nd July 2017
In our first workshops, we asked residents and businesses located on Elm Grove to tell us what works, what doesn’t and where changes can be made to make better use of space.
