Off street car parking lost due to increasingly higher alternative use values

Off street car parking lost due to increasingly higher alternative use values

Westminster City Council are considering letting the top level (50,000 square feet) of Cavendish Square car park for other uses. A large prime West End underground space for around £30 per square foot (£1.5m per annum). Unfortunately, this is too expensive for the new Marylebone library which is now planned for the Seymour Centre. The council is offering the top level of the three-tier car park to a range of occupiers. Commercial space above ground in the area can cost as much as £100 per square foot. We understand that a number of uses are being looked at, including a gym, restaurant, bar, museum, health centre, or a depot for an online retailer of logistics firm. It has vehicle access, a staircase, a lift, 78 light wells and a central ceiling height of 2.7m.

The Future of Oxford Street - Your Views Please

The Future of Oxford Street - Your Views Please

Monthly meetings are being held on the future of traffic on Oxford Street involving Transport for London, Council officials and representatives of residents groups in the West End Community Network, including the Marylebone Association. Data is being gathered on traffic flows and modelling is under way to examine the possible effects of changes to Oxford Street on the wider area. An initial public consultation is planned for April, followed by another later in the year. There is widespread concern amongst residents and businesses that any form of pedestrianisation will cause increased congestion and further damage to air quality in the residential streets of the West End. Please let us know your views to feed into these early discussions. Use the comment facility below this article to send us your views

Oxford Street Traffic Free Day = Marylebone Bus Park !

Oxford Street Traffic Free Day = Marylebone Bus Park !

Part of Oxford Street was closed recently for “car free day” for Oxford Street, which in fact lasted for a whole weekend- with the usual predictable result for Marylebone - who is the Mayor kidding when he says this will improve air quality? The Mayor wants to close Oxford Street totally by 2018 so is this the future for Marylebone's Low Emission Neighbourhood? Lobby the Mayor about this before it is to late.

Baker Street Two-way Scheme - Next Steps

Baker Street Two-way Scheme - Next Steps
Westminster City Council has given approval for the Baker Street Two-way Scheme to go to detailed design. There will be a further public consultation on parking and loading proposals which are being drawn up. Following the second consultation on the scheme there is also a plan to move the proposed cycle lanes from Gloucester Place, north of Marylebone Road, to Melcombe Street, Glentworth Street and Balcombe Street. Further details can be found in the letter below and the links within.
 
I would like to thank all those who have contributed to the second round of public consultation earlier this year for the Baker Street and Gloucester Place Two Way project, through which we sought views on the proposed changes to the initial designs that were consulted on in 2015.

We are hugely grateful to those that have taken part in this second public consultation, with over 500 responses received on a range of topics including perceived traffic congestion, impact on residential streets, air quality and the proposed cycling facilities. The results of this second public consultation are presented in full in our response report.
