Westminster City Council’s Policy and Scrutiny Committee met tonight to consider the plans for the Ebury Bridge estate after councillors requested the decision made on 9 July be ‘called-in’ for further examination. The Committee has approved the plans, endorsing the decision made by Cabinet.
Cllr Rachael Robathan, Cabinet Member for Regeneration, Finance and Property, said: “The City Council is going to deliver 750 new homes in the south of Westminster – with a minimum of 342 of these affordable housing – as part of its Ebury Bridge Estate development.
“Westminster is one of the most challenging environments within which to deliver affordable housing but we are committed to delivering new affordable homes across all parts of the city.
“The decision to approve plans will make the Pimlico estate home to the largest single delivery of new council homes in the heart of London for more than half a century.”
