Westminster City Council is seeking views on the development of Luxborough Street play space, W1U 5BF. This site of approximately 0.069 ha (0.17 acres).
In 2012, the Luxborough Street development site had previously been identified as the new location of the permanent Marylebone Library. The proposed scheme received planning permission in 2014. However, the council says the site is no longer required for this purpose as the library is now being relocated to Seymour Leisure Centre.
The Council would like feedback on two potential development options for the site, as well as your opinion on what you believe is important for them to consider as part of this project.
Option 1 - 100% residential 15-20 one, two and three bedroom flats over five floors
Option 2 - ground floor to be designated for community use, 9-14 one, two and three bedroom flats over five floors
Please provide feedback before Friday 7th September to WCC and don't forget to let us know your views too.
A survey is available to complete online by using the link or the full name:
Next steps for the consultation process for the project:
1. Engagement with residents/businesses/stakeholder groups – early October*
During a two-week period in October, we plan to host two exhibition events on, or close to, the site to present high-level proposals of the development. The outcome of the feedback will be analysed into a report, which will be used to influence the consultation stage.
2. Consultation with residents/businesses/stakeholder groups – November*
Formal consultation is planned to take place over three-weeks with three exhibition events. At this stage, detailed visuals of the proposals will be presented requesting feedback on the materials, colours, style and overall concept of the building and landscaping.
A consultation analysis report will follow to inform and accompany the Planning Application submission in January 2019.*
*These are planned dates, subject to change.
