Minor Material Amendment at Luxborough Street
Westminster has launched its new ‘Fairer Westminster’ Strategy in which we have stated our commitment to delivering genuinely affordable homes.
With over 4000 families and individuals on the housing waiting list, it is crucial that more council homes for social rent are built to meet this demand. At Luxborough Street, we are looking to increase the number of affordable homes being delivered.
We have submitted a minor material amendment which outlines our intention to convert 7 of the new units to social rent tenure, with 7 units remaining intermediate rent. This will directly benefit residents in housing need through a local lettings scheme and will enable people with a local connection to rent affordably in Westminster.
Details of the planning amendment application can be found on Westminster’s planning portal, Reference: 23/04362/COFUL
We consulted extensively with the local community before being granted planning permission in October 2020.
