A development of 23 new affordable homes by Westminster City Council on the Queens Park Court Estate in Kensal Rise, North Westminster has been awarded planning permission.
The new development will be made up of 23 homes for social rent, including a mix of one, two and three bedroom family homes. The new homes will be subject to a local letting policy, which allows the residents on the estate to benefit from the new development by applying for one of the properties before anyone else.
Cllr Melvyn Caplan, Deputy Leader and Cabinet Member for Finance, Property and Regeneration for Westminster City Council, said:
“The planning approval of the Queen’s Park Court Estate is another important step towards us delivering 1,850 new affordable homes as part of our City for All plan, which is one of our top priorities. “This development is an excellent example of how innovative our Infills Programme can be, taking under-utilised spaces to provide new, bright, high-quality homes for our residents.”
In addition to the new homes, the council will also provide wider landscaping and boundary improvements. All these changes, along with the development as a whole, will have a positive impact on the character of the estate and have an overall benefit to the local community.
