Queensway and Westbourne Grove

Ward: Lancaster Gate

Streets Affected: Queensway, Westbourne Grove

Project Type: Streetscape

Project Overview


The above proposals were presented for discussion at a manned display in Whiteleys Shopping centre on Queensway between 25th June and 13th July 2013; with feedback also accepted via the on-line questionnaire until the 31st July 2013.

Due to the large scope, a Concept Design Report was undertaken and this sets out a range of design principles that can be applied to the proposed project area and focuses in on more detailed proposals for the three main gateways to the shopping district. One of the main objectives of this project is to provide a more pedestrian-friendly environment to encourage footfall to and through the shopping district. Other objectives include paving consistency and use of a unified palate of materials, greening where possible, de-cluttering, and lighting improvements.  

A Cabinet Member report was compiled and issued and the Council’s new service provider, FM Conway/WSP have been requested to review the conceptual design and undertake an initial design to identify logical phasing, to deliver the overall concept design, initial costing estimates and estimated time scale of each phasing of work.
There will be further opportunities to comment, and updates will also be reported on this web page.

You are also welcome to discuss the proposals directly with Roger Austin, Westminster City Council (020 7641 7061, civicstreets@westminster.gov.uk); or Patricia Bench, Bayswater Business Improvement District (020 3441 7067, info@bayswaterbid.com)
