Grosvenor submits planning application for Belgravia improvements
Site near Victoria station to open up to entrepreneurs and local residents
Grosvenor Britain & Ireland (Grosvenor) has submitted a planning application with City of Westminster Council for small-scale improvements to 25 Eccleston Place and Radstock House, in south Belgravia, central London.
If approved, the changes would see the currently under-used buildings and adjacent courtyard close to Victoria station opened up for entrepreneurs, designers and small businesses.
Grosvenor aims to enhance pedestrian access to Elizabeth and Eccleston Streets, introducing shops, cafes and restaurants which complement existing businesses and make the area more attractive as a place to live, work and visit. Improvements would also be made to the existing office space in the buildings.
The planning application comes after several weeks of consultation with local residents and businesses.
Catherine Stevenson, Location Director, South Belgravia at Grosvenor Britain & Ireland said: “The response to our proposals has been very positive and we have picked up some valuable feedback on the way. We want to introduce new uses that retain and complement the special character of Belgravia. Our aim is to create a destination in South Belgravia for local residents and workers alike, including a community of entrepreneurs and creative talent.”
Plans will be published on the Westminster City Council website at www.westminster.gov.uk/planning. Those in the local community seeking further information from Grosvenor can contact firstname.lastname@example.org or view the website, www.ecclestonplace.co.uk.
