Creating a City For All Ebury Bridge Estate

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 up to 750 new homes built, with around half being affordable.

The aim for this neighbourhood is to create physical, social and economic sustainability. 

Westminster City Council recently presented updated designs for the new Ebury Bridge before we apply for planning permission in Summer 2020. Click here for more information.

Aims and objectives

The council is working to create a vibrant, modern neighbourhood for both the existing community and new residents. To do this, we'll:

  • Deliver more affordable housing
  • Create a sustainable mixed community
  • Deliver improved public spaces and community facilities
  • Partner with residents and businesses in a meaningful and transparent way to put forward the best proposal for Ebury Bridge Estate
  • Set the standard for estate renewal with high quality design throughout all tenure types
  • Bring to life the most desirable and deliverable option

The new estate

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 around 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.

Ebury Bridge Estate residents have 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.

About Ebury Bridge Estate

Located in the heart of central London, the proposals aim to build on excellent transport links, with the new Ebury Bridge aiming to be an almost car-free 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 estate residents to benefit from excellent views. Around 90% of all homes will benefit from at least two different aspects across the London skyline.

Key pledges

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
