On Friday 10th July 2020, the planning application for the comprehensive redevelopment of the Ebury Bridge Estate was submitted to the Local Planning Authority at Westminster City Council.
Ebury Bridge Estate is a Westminster City Council owned 1930’s housing estate, situated on Ebury Bridge Road in Pimlico. The submission of this application follows extensive consultation with both the residents of Ebury Bridge estate and local neighbours, councillors and amenity groups. The details of this consultation can be found in the project’s Statement of Community Involvement located on the website www.eburybridge.org.uk or as part of the planning application via the Westminster City Council Planning Portal.
The planning application is formed of two parts; a detailed application for two buildings (proposed to be constructed as the first phase of the development) and an outline area application for the remainder of the masterplan. The details for the remaining blocks within the outline area will be developed through further community consultation.
The application proposes the development of 758 new homes of which over half will be affordable housing (including the replacement of the 197 existing social rent homes). New homes for sale and for rent are also proposed for the mixed tenure community. All proposed homes are to be built of high building standards including sustainable energy use, insulation and fire protection.
In addition, the application outlines new community facilities, public squares and shops set in a low car development.
The planning application is now undergoing formal statutory consultation. Comments on the planning application can therefore also be made direct to the Local Planning Authority using the Westminster online Planning portal quoting 20/1719/FUL.
