Balmoral Castle and Darwin House drop-in session

Following a petition received last year, Westminster City Council committed to redeveloping the site of the Balmoral Castle pub. This has created an opportunity to explore providing more community supported housing in the area.

We want to work with residents to make sure this happens in a way that benefits the community, and particularly the residents of Darwin House.

We are running our first round of drop-in sessions throughout August, September, and October 2019. These sessions are the first step in working with residents to develop designs.
