Good Growth Fund supports Westway Community Street
12 March 2020
The Mayor and London Economic Action Partnership (LEAP) have pledged £1,346,000 to support the Westway Trust’s ‘Community Street’.
The ‘Community Street’ is a ten-year vision providing physical improvements and renewal as well as better economic opportunities for people in North Kensington. It aims to bring together what is currently a series of disjointed spaces, to create a more cohesive place to better support the community. This project builds on the urban strategy and delivery plan co-designed with the local community by Fluid.
Fluid was appointed by the Westway Trust in 2018 to develop an urban design strategy for the 23 acres of land they manage on behalf of the local community under the Westway flyover in West London. Developed with the communities along the Westway, the strategy sets out a vision for the Westway estate over the next 10 years to deliver physical improvement, renewal and better economic and cultural opportunities for local people. The work is supported through the Mayor of London’s Good Growth Fund and addresses the Good Growth themes of Empowering People, Making Better Places and Growing Prosperity.
