Aldershot Urban Extension: Rushmore Borough Council – Councillor Peter Moyles
Grainger prides itself on the depth and range of consultation we undertake, particularly in the initial stages of a project. With a project as significant as the redevelopment and creation of over 4,500 new homes in Aldershot, this focus was key to creating a success for all stakeholders.
One of the key participants in the project was Rushmore Borough Council, led by Councillor Peter Moyles. He praised our ‘refreshing’ approach of open consultation, commitment, knowledge and expertise, admitting Grainger had “done a lot of our legwork for us”.
Grainger was quick to consult not only with local residents, but also with councillors, businesses and shops. Local people particularly appreciated plans to redevelop the much loved Cambridge Military Hospital, which has served the Army and civilians for many years.
Throughout the redevelopment planning, we were committed to taking into account the best of what the existing Aldershot site has to offer, from its historic heritage and scenic views to its infrastructure and very strong community.
“It’s encouraging that the kind of things that Grainger want to do, will build on what we are doing already,” Mr Moyles said. “They are actually building into Aldershot rather than out of it.”
