Westmead Ground Breaking
Westmead Ground Breaking

Cllr Adam Hug (Leader of Westminster City Council) and Cllr Matt Noble (Cabinet Member for Regeneration and Renters) have planted the ‘first spade in the ground’ at the groundbreaking for the new 100% truly affordable housing development on the old Westmead Care Home site near Westbourne Park station in a ceremony on Friday 8th March.

The former care home was closed in Summer 2020 with residents being offered new accommodation at Beachcroft Development in Maida Vale and the building was demolished in 2023. Thanks to Labour, the new development will provide 65 all affordable homes comprising 34 family sized council homes for social rent (70% of the scheme by floor space) and 31 intermediate units for key workers. Under the Tories the scheme was due to have 50% homes for private sale and a much lower proportion of social housing within the affordable element of the scheme.

The development will also include improved green space for the wider community, 121 new cycle spaces, and employment opportunities for local residents.

Cllr Adam Hug said, “I’m delighted that our Labour Council is getting on with building truly affordable housing we need in Westminster, flipping homes the Tories originally planned to sell off with more council homes for social rent to tackle Westminster’s waiting lists.”
