Bringing more affordable homes to Belgravia
Early in 2019, we began consulting on plans to redevelop a part of Belgravia around Cundy Street. Our ambition is to increase the amount and the quality of housing in this neighbourhood, as well as making it greener and more sustainable.
Our consultation prompted widespread debate. In a part of London where more than 7,000 households are waiting to find an affordable home, there is a clear case for more homes. But many people also understandably do not want change.
We have run three public exhibitions and trialled an online engagement platform, alongside a continuous dialogue with all our stakeholders. We are also giving an independent journalist open access to the project so they can scrutinise the process and publish their views.
Public feedback has directly influenced our proposals, changing the mix of shops, height of the buildings and design of public space, and we hope to secure planning consent in 2020.
