Deputy leader Cllr Melvyn Caplan visits Church Street

Councillor Melvyn Caplan came to visit Church Street construction sites on Thursday 28 May. He visited the three sites - Ashmill, Ashbridge and Cosway (AAC), Lisson Arches, and Luton Street.

The first site visited was Ashbridge, Ashmill & Cosway which will deliver 77 new homes, 28 of which will be affordable. Work on all three sites of this project began in 2019 and will last around two years.

He then set off to Lisson Arches, which will deliver 59 new homes, 44 of which will be new social rented one-bedroom apartments, 14 will be for flats for private sale and one will be a two-bedroom scheme manager’s residence. All existing buildings have been removed and preparation for ground works is underway. Works are set to complete in 2021.

Lastly but not least, he visited Luton & Fisherton Street, which will deliver 168 new homes. This project will be over a third of the new homes will be affordable and the project includes a sports hall, green landscaped area and community space. Work started in 2019 and is expected to last for around two and a half years.

Cllr Caplan said: “Church Street is our largest regeneration programme and will deliver around 2,000 new homes. Building these new homes is another important step towards us delivering 1,850 new affordable homes as part of our overall plan to make Westminster a City for All. Despite the challenges we've faced, the team has worked hard to keep on site, whilst protecting our workers, so that we can continue to build homes which our residents desperately need."

We are looking forward to sharing and updating our community on the development of our Church Street projects. Each project is working hard to improve the quality of life of the people who live and work in these areas.  

The Church Street Regeneration Base is currently closed to protect the health of our community. We are still all working hard on the regeneration, and still want to hear from you, if you have any further queries please contact us:
