This October Redwood managed the high-profile public exhibitions serving as the centrepiece of major pre-application engagement on the proposed development of The Mall at Cribbs Causeway. Redwood is tasked with leading the comprehensive engagement process on behalf of the joint owners: M&G Real Estate, intu Properties Plc and JT Baylis.

The exhibitions, which were held over two days in The Mall, followed months of engagement with a range of key stakeholders from across the region, including local politicians and a wide variety of interest groups and businesses. Feedback has been overwhelmingly positive and an outline planning application is due to be submitted to South Gloucestershire Council later this month against a background of strong and widespread support.

The planning application comprises new retail, leisure, restaurants, community and event spaces and homes, with the potential to play an important role in the South West region as well as the local area, which has 8,000 new homes planned.
