Berkeley Homes presented initial plans to deliver new homes, improved public realm and active commercial uses at the former Paddington Green Police Station in December 2020. Following consideration of this feedback revised proposals are now under development.
The scheme revisions include:
- Height: Reduction of building heights to a maximum of 32 storeys, reducing homes to 555 in total
- Family Homes: Increased number of larger family sized homes for socially rented families
- Accessibility: Improved pedestrian and cycle connectivity and entrances
- Affordable Workspace: An enlarged community space which is to be provided as an affordable workspace.
- Sustainability: Focus on sustainable development with inclusion of triple glazing to reduce energy consumption, high-quality air filtration for residents and an increase in bio-diversity.
- Public Realm: Public realm was a top priority for survey respondents. We have therefore ensured our proposals go beyond our legal boundary to provide high-quality public areas. We continue to work with TfL and Westminster City Council to improve our proposals.
- Traffic and Parking: Ensure the development is a car-free scheme and contain as much servicing within the basement to reduce congestion on roads.
- Ground Floor: Creation of an enhanced ground floor through new flexible commercial space designed to activate the area.
- Improved Safety: Better lighting throughout the development along with better connections creating natural surveillance.
As part of the consultation on the updated proposals, the project team are hosting two live webinars on Thursday 25 February 6-7pm and Wednesday 3 March 6-7pm where they will present the proposals and the local community will have the opportunity to ask questions.
You can visit the virtual exhibition or sign up for the webinars here. This will remain live until 5 March 2021. A Freephone number 0800 193 1869 is also available if you have any questions.
