Westminster City Council approves 200 new homes in next stage of West End Gate's regeneration

14-17 Paddington Green

Acting on behalf of Berkeley Homes and Lucky Six Limited, planning consultancy Turley has secured the go-ahead for the development of 200 new homes at 14-17 Paddington Green, marking the next phase of Berkeley Homes’ major mixed-use redevelopment and regeneration of West End Gate on Edgware Road, London.

Westminster City Council’s planning committee resolved to grant planning permission for the demolition and redevelopment of 14-16 Paddington Green, alteration and partial demolition of 17 Paddington Green, and development of land to the east and south of 14-17 Paddington Green, including the provision of 200 residential units in new buildings ranging between 4 and 14 upper storeys, with associated landscaping, basement car and cycle parking and servicing provision.

The decision unlocks Berkeley’s placemaking masterplan for the regeneration of West End Gate and facilitates a cohesive and comprehensive approach to the successful design and delivery of Berkeley’s wider mixed-use proposals for the area, which were given consent in April 2016.

The Grade II listed building at 17 Paddington Green will be retained and refurbished as part of the development proposals, which draw on the architecture of neighbouring buildings such as the former Children’s Hospital and St Mary’s Church to embed new buildings sensitively in their local and historic setting.

Commenting on behalf of Turley, Michael Lowndes, Senior Director, said:

“This decision unlocks Berkeley’s ambitious proposals for West End Gate and means a site that has been under-utilised for far too long can be transformed to create much needed new homes and support the regeneration of the Church Street community.”

Piercy & Company is the scheme architect.
