We want residents living in the regeneration areas named Sites A, B and C to have their say on our regeneration proposals. An independent resident ballot is the next stage in the development of our proposals, and we will be working closely with residents in Sites A, B and C and the community over the coming months.
The ballot will give residents the opportunity to decide the future of their homes and the redevelopment of the three sites. The resident ballot will be carried out by the independent company, Civica Election Services (CES), in accordance with the Greater London Authority’s guidance. The guidance sets out who is eligible to vote and how the ballot should be conducted.
We are committed that all council-led development schemes will prioritise low-cost social rent housing and provide Westminster residents and their families with genuinely affordable housing options. Should residents vote ‘Yes’ at the forthcoming ballot this will give us the chance to bid for funding to further increase the numbers of affordable homes in the development. It will also ensure we can provide much needed modern, fit-for purpose homes which will address long standing issues such as overcrowding, low energy efficiency, and improve facilities for the benefit of existing and new residents.
Over the next few weeks, we will contact everyone who is eligible to vote and invite them to a 1-2-1 session, which can be in person, by telephone, online or attend a workshop to discuss the ballot and the Landlord Offer. The Landlord Offer will set out the councils’ commitments to residents. Drop-in sessions will be held every Thursday from 20 October at 35 Church Street from 12pm to 3 p.m. FAQs with further information on the ballot are available to view below.
Residents who are not eligible to vote are able to attend the drop-ins or contact us if they want to know more about the ballot and the redevelopment of Church Street. Please contact us on 020 7641 2968 or email email@example.com to book an appointment or speak to a team member.
We will continue to provide updates on the residents’ ballot and redevelopment in our newsletter and online.
