Westfield Regeneration Plan Approved

A £1 Billion Extension Plan for Westfield Shopping Centre in West London is set to go ahead, paving the way for building construction work – Construction Enquirer revealed today.

The scheme will build more than 1,500 homes across five buildings, ranging from 8 to 20 storeys.  Some of these will be as part of the affordable housing scheme announced by the government in November last year.

Plans for redevelopment of the 22 acre site will include new green offices, restaurants and a huge extension to the current shopping centre will include community facilities and leisure space.

The Mayor of London, Boris Johnson, is expected to rubber-stamp the scheme before building construction work can begin in 2014. Further details of the scheme will be announced later this year.

Hammersmith & Fulham Council’s cabinet member for community engagement Harry Phibbs, explained that this is a vital investment for the area which will create new jobs and encourage future economic growth.

Mr Phibbs said: “This development is bringing positive change, improvements and jobs to an area that needs revitalising.”

Duncan Bower, Director of Development and Asset Management at Westfield, said: “We are naturally very pleased with the decision by Hammersmith and Fulham Council to approve the scheme. We now await the decision of both the Mayor and the Secretary of State.”
