We are undertaking the comprehensive regeneration of Church Street Site A. This will include the demolition of existing buildings and the erection of a residential-led mixed use development. Included in the project will be:
- new buildings to provide mixed-tenure residential units and ancillary residential facilities
- community, commercial business and service floorspace
- market infrastructure and ancillary facilities
- the provision of publicly accessible open space
- new pedestrian and vehicle routes, accesses and amenity areas, servicing and other associated works
To achieve the implementation of this regeneration scheme, we made a Compulsory Purchase Order (CPO) on 31 October 2023 that affects a number of properties and businesses across Church Street Site A.
What is a Compulsory Purchase Order and how it affects your property?
Compulsory purchase is a legal mechanism by which certain bodies (known as ‘acquiring authorities’) Westminster City Council in this case, can acquire land.
The order authorises the City of Westminster to purchase compulsorily the land described for the purposes of facilitating the carrying out of development, re-development or improvement on or in relation to the land and rights in connection with the demolition, construction and maintenance of the redevelopment.
Documentation about the CPO:
You can also view the documentation at Westminster City Hall, 64 Victoria Street and the Church Street Regeneration Base, 99 Church Street between Wednesday 1 November 2023 and Monday 11 December 2023.
We understand that this process can cause concern. If you have any questions about the Compulsory Purchase Order, please feel free to contact the Church Street Regeneration Team:
