Connaught Village Green: consultation on layout

Westminster Council is consulting on the traffic arrangements for the creation of Connaught Village Green. This follows previous consultation phases in March and September 2023.

These new proposals see the retention of two way traffic on Kendal Street, following comments made in previous consultation.

The footway/streetscape improvements include:

  • Creating a new green space at the heart of Connaught Village with biodiverse planting, outdoor seating, and new paving in natural stone;
  • Improved crossings with a raised table and shorter crossing distances to increase pedestrian comfort;
  • Updating the north – south cycle link via Titchborne Row to encourage pedestrian and cycle travel, reduce emissions and improve air quality;
  • Widening the footway at the southern side of Connaught Street (between the junction of Albion Street and Kendal Street) with a loading bay, two trees and cycle stands;
  • Providing a place for residents to socialise with additional seating and access to free drinking water; and
  • Providing additional cycle stands on Connaught Street.

Road and kerbside changes include:

  • The relocation of a zebra crossing;
  • Amendments to parking places and waiting restrictions.

The City Council is inviting businesses to disucss kerbside delivery needs for delivery and courier companies, to ensure that their needs are fully understood and conveyed. Read more about the proposals here.

Comments are sought by 13 March 2024 quoting reference 8058/HWB. You can make detailed comments on the Commonplace platform.
