At a Westminster City Council Cabinet meeting on 27 June 2011 approval was given for the Tollgate Gardens Estate Renewal Scheme to move to the next stage - submission of detailed plans for planning consent.

76% of those voting in November decided that they wanted to see development on the estate with Option 4 being the most popular choice. This design received 37% of the vote.
Option 4 involves the demolition and rebuild of all Godwin and Wingfield Blocks, refurbishment of Tollgate House entranceway and the provision of a new community centre.
