The Westbourne Green Masterplan proposals were given the go ahead at Westminster City Council’s June cabinet meeting. The Masterplan, which includes proposals to build new homes, new community facilities, improve public spaces, and increase job prospects, could be delivered within a ten year time scale. The cabinet endorsed the proposals and the Masterplan will now progress to the design and consultation stage leading to the public vote.
Geoff Biggs, Westbourne Park Family Centre Director commented on the proposals, saying “I encourage every resident to have a look at the proposals and to give their views. Take this opportunity to influence and improve Westbourne for the future. Make sure that your voice is heard and vote when the time comes.”
What happens now?
The Cabinet decision means that the Masterplan proposals can progress towards implementation. However, a number of important stages of work remain before the proposals can be delivered. These include:
- A new design team will be recruited to provide further detailed design concepts with the input of local residents. This will form a basis for the public vote.
- There will be further public exhibitions and consultations with local residents, businesses and stakeholders.
- There will be a public vote to decide whether the plans will go ahead. All local residents on the electoral role will be invited to participate in an official independent vote overseen by the Electoral Reform Society.
