Six New CIL Applications Submitted
Thank you to everyone who sent in comments on suggested projects to improve the Hyde Park Paddington neighbourhood in February. The Forum has today, 27 February 2020, made six applications to Westminster’s Neighbourhood CIL team. The CIL funding sought totals £225,000, against a possible £635,000 currently available to the Hyde Park Paddington Neighbourhood Forum.
The six projects are as follows:
Bishop’s Bridge Road Public Realm Action Plan: generating a fully costed set of highways and public realm proposals to improve the conditions for people using Bishop’s Bridge Road.
Edgware Road Insights Study: undertaking a thorough analysis and appraisal of the Edgware Road centre, to form the evidence base for our emerging Neighbourhood Plan.
London Street to Connaught Village: scoping pavement widening, improved way-finding, public art and green infrastructure to improve the key walking route from London Street down to Connaught Village.
Norfolk Square Gardens Showcase: creating a central floral display at Norfolk Square Gardens, animating the square with new colour and life.
Sale Place to Connaught Village: developing a plan for improving lighting, pavements and junctions from Paddington Basin down through the Hyde Park Estate to Connaught Village.
South Wharf Road: installing a pedestrian refuge at the junction of South Wharf Road and Praed Street, to improve safety.
These projects will now be assessed by officers at Westminster City Council, and recommendations will be made to the Cabinet CIL Committee for its next meeting on 6 April 2020.
