Councillors in the London Borough of Merton have voted to approve plans brought forward by Medina Capital and Aitch Group to build a landmark residential building on the Burlington Road.
Having been involved from the beginning, Cratus provided a community and political engagement programme for the application. Throughout the process Cratus identified the key issues for local residents, how the issues were likely to impact the application and advised the application team on how to address them. Cratus were also able to identify and manage political risk given our knowledge of the borough and the decision makers involved.
Ben Sherreard, Executive Director for Cratus Planning said:
This was an excellent scheme and we are very happy to have provided support on this successful application. Merton is clearly a Borough with a vision and forward thinking members of the development community can see the opportunity here. By assisting the Leadership of the Council in delivering their vision there is fantastic potential for growth.
We are proud to have been able to bring our commitment to solid consultation and our knowledge of Merton politics to the team and assist a fantastic application get approved.
