In an attempt to distribute over 22,000 homes, City Plan 2019-2040, its development blueprint, has been granted approval by Westminster City Council.
The plan is designed and targeted to deliver:
- Affordable homes, with 6/10 as intermediate housing.
- The “right environment” for business success, with business floor space for 63,000 new jobs.
- More open & green spaces.
- 1,495 new homes every year for 10 years & over 22,000 up to 2040.
- 1,850 new affordable homes by 2023.
Deputy leader and cabinet member for place shaping and planning, Richard Beddoe, has said:
“Our new city plan will pave the way to more homes, business growth and a greener city – striking a balance between conservation and the need to support more housing and jobs in the heart of the capital.
It will help cement our position as one of the world’s best and most exciting places to live, work and visit.
The city plan has been developed as a result of sustained and meaningful dialogue with a large number of local resident groups, councillors, businesses and relevant regional and national bodies as well as other agencies, and I would like to thank everyone for their involvement.”
After two rounds of consultation, including the regulation 19 stage, the council are confident that the current draft plan is sound.
Before it can be adopted as policy, it will be submitted to the housing secretary for deliberation.
