Single Move Confirmed for Walden House Residents
At our consultation meetings in November last year, we heard how the council’s residents in Walden House welcomed the right of return to new social rented homes and the initial proposals for these new homes.
However, one of their ongoing concerns was the prospect of having to move twice – from Walden House to a temporary home and then into the new homes once construction had finished – and the uncertainty this would cause them.
We are pleased to confirm that all Walden House residents will now have a choice to either:
– move once directly into a new social rented home on the new development at Cundy Street (subject to planning permission).
– or move to an alternative social rented home within Westminster and will be able to bid on available council and registered providers’ (housing association) properties, before having the option to return upon completion.
Subject to the impacts of the Covid-19 outbreak and consent for the planning application we would expect to start work on site in late 2021, with Walden House residents able to move into their new home in Cundy Street in 2025.
