We are committed to an ongoing dialogue to ensure that we meet the varied needs of Belgravia today and in the future.

We have worked to ensure all the community, including existing residents, have multiple opportunities to feedback on the proposals and understand how their comments have been listened to. You can read more about our approach to supporting existing residents here.

Feedback has already influenced the:

  • Amended phasing so that Walden House residents so that they can move directly into the new social rent homes that would be provide.
  • Design of the social rent homes in line with the needs of existing Walden House residents, in support of Westminster City Council’s offer of a Right to Return for these residents.
  • Increased range of uses to include a small food store, cinema and community space
  • Removal of a storey from the tallest building overlooking Ebury Square
  • Proposed material for the building on Ebury Square / Pimlico Road, changing it for a lighter brick tone
  • Staggering of the building height along Pimlico Road adjacent to the Coleshill flats
  • Reduced the number of shops on Ebury Street to maintain a residential feel
  • Moved the vehicular drop off for the senior homes from Ebury Street to Cundy Street
  • Improved the design and security of Elizabeth Place Gardens, in collaboration with Coleshill residents, making it a car-free area.
  • Introduced additional trees and greenery along Ebury Street
  • Progressed the playspace proposals for Ebury Square

Local engagement to date has included:

We will continue this dialogue beyond the planning submission through a Neighbours Liaison Group and an on-going community investment programme to assist the integration of new and existing residents and bring long-term local benefit.

We want to ensure that the long-term plans for the neighbourhood respond to the needs of people of all backgrounds and ages, including the young people that live here. We have partnered with the Young Westminster Foundation to launch ‘Young Belgravia’ and ensure that they are part of the ongoing conversation. We will also work with local youth clubs and schools to set up a Youth Forum for South Belgravia to ensure that young people in the neighbourhood can influence change in the area.
