Westminster City Council has shared plans to build over 1,700 new homes in around the Marylebone area in the coming 15-20 years.
The draft masterplan for the Church Street area of Marylebone (NW1) lists nine regeneration sites where development plans are underway.
The masterplans fits in to the council’s strategy to create a “City for All” by building more affordable homes for Marylebone residents and showing it is still possible to have home of all kinds in the heart of London.
35% of all new homes will be affordable and existing council tenanted homes will be re-provided at social rent, with the option for all existing secure tenants to be re-housed in the scheme – resulting in 50% of the homes being affordable in total.
With the cost of living in some parts of Marylebone, such as new developments on Chiltern Street, hitting £5,000 per square foot, this will no doubt come as welcome news for residents of Marylebone.
