Views sought on Westminster’s Church Street transformation
Peter Brett Associates and LDA Design’s Church Street masterplan has been opened up for public feedback by Westminster City Council.
The council wants to make this diverse and complex area, which is close to London’s West End, the most liveable neighbourhood in London, overcoming issues of social and economic exclusion.
The masterplan will help guide economic growth and physical development for the next 15-20 years, delivering real change for the community by creating great places to live and opportunities for a healthy and prosperous lifestyle. The scheme includes the creation of circa 1750 new homes, including more affordable homes for local people.
“We are eager to make Church Street an inclusive place to live, where people can thrive and businesses prosper,” explains LDA Design Associate, Graciela Moreno. “There is a strong sense of community in the area – it’s really vibrant – and there’s much to build on.
“We’ve reached out to local people throughout this process, so it’s very exciting to get to the stage where residents can see the overall vision for where they live and respond to it.”
The consultation period runs until 29 October.
