Grosvenor adopts new community engagement technology
New proptech platform reduces barriers to engagement on development proposals
To ensure we can deliver positive change for communities now and in the future, Grosvenor Britain & Ireland has been exploring ways to encourage broader and deeper engagement on its development proposals.
To complement its extensive face to face engagement programmes, the business has become one of the first in the UK to adopt Built-ID, an online platform created to reduce barriers to community engagement.
Built-ID enables participants to vote on key elements of a proposal and gain continual feedback on their input and influence in the decision making process.
Grosvenor Britain & Ireland is piloting the technology on a new proposal for a residential led, mixed use neighbourhood on its London estate in Belgravia and can be viewed at www.cundystreetquarter.com.
Paul O’Grady, Location Director, Grosvenor Britain & Ireland said: “Local communities are increasingly sceptical of how well developers listen, and respond, to their ambitions and needs.
“We know that communities want early and deeper input into development proposals and to understand how their voices have been heard.
“Starting with the Cundy Street Quarter, we’re excited by the opportunity to more clearly demonstrate the influence a community’s input has had on our proposals through Built ID.”
