Iceni Projects has today (5 July 2018) announced the appointment of Gina Murgatroyd as a Consultant and Erica Corina as a Junior Consultant in its Engagement Team.

Iceni Projects’ Engagement Team advises a wide range of clients on stakeholder engagement, public consultation and communications strategies. Gina will be focusing on Iceni’s growing portfolio of strategic land projects.

Gina’s background is in stakeholder engagement and public affairs. She joins Iceni from a private property management firm where she provided political engagement support. Prior to this, Gina managed public affairs for City & Guilds, and worked with disability charity Scope on campaigns and stakeholder management. Gina also has experience working for a senior London Liberal Democrat MP.

Erica’s previous roles have been with design studios and international cultural projects. She  has recently completed a Masters in Narrative Environments at Central Saint Martins, a course which uniquely combines design with creative community engagement.

Gina Murgatroyd, Consultant, Engagement, Iceni Projects, said:

“Providing political engagement support to a developer gave me the bug for planning. The local elections, particularly in London, have shown just how quickly personalities and priorities can change in politics. Housing remains a key governmental priority both nationally and locally, and I’m looking forward to helping our clients navigate the changing political landscape.”

Ciron Edwards, Director, Iceni Engagement, said:

“As Iceni Engagement expands its offer, it is important we bring on board people with fresh ideas and perspective. Having sat on the other side of the table working for a local developer, Gina will bring commercial insight that will perfectly balance Erica’s understanding of community aspirations and needs. I look forward to them becoming integral parts of our growing team.”

Iceni Engagement’s work has been focussed on strategic land promotion and residential developments. As well as analysing the post-local election landscape and how it will impact future planning priorities for its clients, some of the team’s current projects include:

  • Weston Homes PLC, Abbey Retail Park in Barking: working with key political stakeholders to support Western Homes’ vision for a mixed-use development, at the forefront of Barking’s ambitious future vision;
  • Cogent Land PLC, Southend East Access Road proposals: working across multiple local authorities to help achieve shared goals in growth and infrastructure improvements;
  • Red and Yellow Care development in Richmond: converting a brownfield site into an innovative development scheme, transforming the way care is currently delivered in the area.
