Thank you to everybody who has taken part in our free public online programme for Redesigning Grosvenor Square. We encourage you to participate in our upcoming events.
So far, 748 people have been involved over the past 6 weeks and we have gathered over 2049 pieces of feedback. This feedback will be consolidated to create the Grosvenor Square Community Priorities, a list that will be used throughout this process to assess if the emerging designs meet local requirements.

Local Conversations: 27th and 30th June
Our Local Conversations will be an opportunity for a more detailed conversation about what priorities need to be considered to make Grosvenor Square both useful and sustainable. Sign up here to attend.
