Jermyn Street Public Realm Improvement project

Jermyn Street Public Realm Improvement project

Ward: St James's

Streets Affected: Jermyn Street, Regent Street, St James's Street

Project Type: Streetscape

Project Overview

Westminster City Council is working in partnership with The Crown Estate to improve the public realm of Jermyn Street, between St James’s Street and Regent Street St James’s. The street’s rich heritage and distinctive character is home to many fine buildings which house specialist retailers and art galleries. However, over time the street has become tired, cluttered and is currently not in keeping with Jermyn Street’s worldwide reputation for high quality British artistry and craftsmanship.

The public realm improvements for Jermyn Street will widen the narrow footways, introduce quality paving using natural stone products, reduce the dominance of parked vehicles and introduce modern street lighting. All will result in a fully revitalised Jermyn Street, providing a much enhanced setting for the specialist retail, dining and hotel accommodation on the street and a vastly improved experience for visitors.

Outline Programme

The works started on 30th May 2017 and will be completed in autumn 2018. The programme is phased, with Jermyn Street divided into a number of sections (and each worked on in turn with occasional overlaps). Phases 1 - 4 (Jermyn Street between Regent Street St James's and Duke Street St James's) are now complete. Phase 5 is complete with a few minor outstanding works. Phase 6 commenced in May and will be completed once the resurfacing on St James's Street has been undertaken.

For more information about the programme of works please consult the project documents below or email us. Past project documents are available upon request.
