The vision for the Ebury Bridge Estate is to set a new standard in estate regeneration.
In partnership with Ebury Bridge residents, Westminster City Council is taking forward a scheme that will see around 750 new homes built with at least 342 of these affordable homes.
The renewal project aims to provide more affordable housing and bring about long-term physical, economic and social sustainability of the area.
The council is working to create a vibrant, modern neighbourhood for both the existing community and new residents. To do this, we'll:
In 2018, following extensive consultation with Ebury Bridge residents, Westminster City Council approved proposals for the renewal of Ebury Bridge.
The proposals will see the full redevelopment of the current estate and the creation of 750 new high-quality homes across a range of tenures. We will reprovide all existing council homes, and deliver at least another 159 new affordable homes.
During the consultation, process Ebury Bridge Estate residents told us how much they loved the existing communal garden. To reflect this feedback, five new large high quality public squares will provide a unique experience for residents and visitors alike. These spaces will reflect a contemporary approach to the traditional London square, with each benefiting from sunlight throughout the day.
Located in the heart of central London, the proposals aim to build upon the excellent transport links, with the new Ebury Bridge aiming to be a low-car development. Both pedestrian and cycle transport will be a priority throughout the estate.
Energy efficiency and reducing the estate's carbon footprint are cornerstones of the scheme. The proposals outline how the estate will, in time, become a zero-carbon estate and how it will contribute to the United Nations 17 sustainability goals.
With so many prominent landmarks in the area, we want residents of the estate to benefit from excellent views. Around 90% of all homes will benefit from at least two different aspects across the London skyline.
Underpinning the entire project, the council will ensure:
A right to return for residents is guaranteed for all secure tenants and resident leaseholders
A full replacement of all council homes
35% of new homes provided will be affordable for social and intermediate rent
Estate overcrowding is addressed
Local retail options serve the local community.
Ebury Bridge will remain a council-owned estate
Residents will remain at the heart of developing a viable scheme
