Cocks Crescent

Latest news

We are working with Fluid to run a co-design process with the community. This will help to shape the Design and Development Brief for the future development partner for the site. 

Throughout July and September 2019, independent consultants, Fluid, facilitated a number of co-design events including two workshops with the local community. These workshops aimed to investigate the following aspects of the site in greater detail:

  • Character and identity
  • Layout and land-uses
  • Height and three dimensional form of buildings
  • Community benefits and facilities

We would like to thank everyone who has contributed their time to the co-design process so far.

A Community Drop-in Event was held on Saturday 7 September, where the outcomes of the co-design process was shared and additional thoughts and feedback sought. The final outcome of this process will help to shape the Design and Development Brief for the site.

The information shared at the Community Drop-in Event can be found here

Summer 2019 

We were pleased to welcome 42 local people to the second co-design workshop on Saturday 27 July.  Key principles for the site and three different design scenarios were presented by the architects for discussion, responding to key themes from feedback heard in the first co-design workshop.  We explored themes such as movement, layout, building form, height and materials. The feedback from the workshop will help us to identify acceptable uses and scale of development that will inform the Design and Development Brief.  A refined design proposal and key development principles will now be worked up based on the feedback received and will be shared at a public event in Autumn.

The second co-design workshop followed some engaging and well attended pop-up events in early July and the first co-design workshop which 28 local people attended on Saturday 13 July. At the first workshop, residents undertook a site visit and got involved in helping to shape the future identity of the Cocks Crescent site through discussions on themes such as public open space, community facilities and approach to height.

Two workshops were held in July as follows:

Workshop 1 
DATE: Saturday 13 July 
TIME: 12.30pm - 4.30pm
LOCATION: The Malden Centre, Blagdon Road, KT3 4AF

Workshop 2

Spring 2019


As part of the next stage of the Cocks Crescent site redevelopment, the council started a co-design engagement process with the community in June 2019. 

This process has been informed following the report from Create Streets, an independent consultant which outlined thoughts on the engagement process so far. Please visit our “how we got to where we are” section for more information. 

This initiative will help shape the next stage of the process which is the development of a Design and Development Brief for the site.
