Westminster City Council has approved plans for Ebury Bridge Estate, which will see the delivery of 781 new homes
The proposals for Ebury Bridge Estate will see the full redevelopment of the current estate and the creation of sustainable homes.
This includes 239 council homes and 53% of all homes will be affordable.
The development will aim to be an almost car-free scheme, with disabled car parking only. Both pedestrian and cycle transport will be a top priority with more than 2,000 cycle spaces for residents.
The newly built homes will use 90% less carbon than the existing estate and grey water recycling will be used for household functions.
As well as 781 homes, there will be a new community hub, nursery and fitness centre for residents and visitors.
There will also be four public squares created with water and play features. The green spaces will have enhanced lighting for security and an on-site management team.
Around 270 new trees will be planted, as well as the retention of mature existing trees.
An extended high street with new local shops and cafés has also been approved and there will be new places to work including flexible workspace on Ebury Bridge Road and at the new northern gateway.
‘Right to return for residents guaranteed’
Debbie Jackson, Westminster City Council’s executive director for growth planning and housing, said: “The development of the Ebury Bridge Estate will see more than 400 additional new homes built. This includes 53% affordable homes.
“The new homes will use 90% less carbon compared to the existing estate and it will be a low car scheme.
“The right to return for residents is guaranteed for all secure tenants and resident leaseholders.”
