Westminster City Council today launched a wide-ranging public consultation to identify the best way forward to manage the future growth of Westminster.
‘Building height: Getting the right kind of growth for Westminster’ is seeking the views of all those that live, work and visit the City. The feedback received during the course of the consultation, which will run for eight weeks, will help inform Westminster City Council’s future plans for the City which will be set out during the statutory consultation on the City Plan later this year. As part of this consultation there will be a series of public events taking place across the City.
Westminster’s cabinet member for planning and public realm, Daniel Astaire, said: “This is an incredibly exciting time for Westminster. As our city grows, this will be a once-in-a-generation opportunity for all those that live, work and visit the area to shape its future.
“We cannot stand still. London’s population is expected to grow by almost 25% by 2041. That means we have to act now to find the best way to manage that growth and ensure that Westminster remains the centre of a leading world city.
We ask all members to respond to this consultation, if possible, as the consequences will be far reaching for the Westminster property industry. The WPA Board will be responding in due course and our response will be made available. Read more | Respond here
