The final proposals for the Cundy Street Quarter have been approved by Westminster City Council

June 2021

We are delighted to update you that Westminster City Council’s Planning Sub-Committee has resolved to grant planning permission for the Cundy Street Quarter.

This will enable the transformation of a closed-off site with no public amenities, dominated by car parking and unmodernised affordable housing into a handsome, open, low carbon neighbourhood.

The redevelopment will provide 88 affordable homes*, specialist senior living housing for up to 170 people and 70 open market homes. These will be framed by improved green spaces and introduce a community hub, food store and cinema to the area.

The approval follows the deferral of the application in February 2021 to consider the impact of removing the top floor from the senior living building fronting Ebury Street. After consultation with residents, we submitted an amended proposal that meets the request to reduce the impact on daylight and sunlight whilst minimising the reduction in new intermediate homes for Westminster. You can read more about this here. All the affordable homes will be up to 50% larger than the existing homes, cheaper to run, and have their own communal gardens and play spaces. Westminster City Council residents from Walden House have a right to return to the new social rented homes on site, with the option to move just once should they choose. These homes will be prioritised in the first phase of the development, which is expected to complete in 2025. The design amends did not impact on the social rented housing offer. We’d like to thank everyone that participated in the process over the last two years and look forward to working closely with you in the future. We will share more about what happens next in the coming months, but in the meantime please don’t hesitate to contact us at cundystreet@grosvenor.com if you have any questions.
