Click for more detail A new community centre for North Kensington Corporate Services and Housing 07 Jul 2016 26 Nov 2016
Aim

The Wornington Green Estate, owned by Catalyst Housing Ltd (CHL), is undergoing major redevelopment. This includes the creation of new homes and improvements to the local park and play facilities.

The Council owns the freehold to the current community centre which is occupied by the Venture Community Association. The plans involve the demolition of the current community centre (to form part of the new park that is being planned) and the provision of a new community centre on Portobello Road.

Although it will be built by CHL, the Council will be the client for this part of the development and the freehold of the new building will be held by the Council. The new centre will be at least the same size as the current one. The detailed design, size and facilities to be provided in the new centre have not yet been decided, but will be subject to further consultation and a detailed planning application. The existing Centre will not be demolished until the new centre is ready.

The Council is keen to hear the views of stakeholders on what they would like to see offered in the new centre. Therefore a wide ranging consultation is taking place to gether views.

Click for more detail A new library for North Kensington Corporate Services and Housing 23 Jun 2016 30 Jul 2016
Aim

Our current North Kensington Library is in an imposing listed building in a prime location on Ladbroke Grove, but as a library it is far from ideal. It is not an easy building for people with mobility difficulties, is spread over three floors which makes it difficult and expensive to operate and has a number of issues that will be costly to put right due to its protected status.

We can address these by moving to a new location which will enable us to deliver a modern library service. The existing building will generate much-needed revenue to support Council services during a period of great financial strain. For all these reasons we are proposing to build a bigger, better North Kensington Library just 50 or so metres away in Lancaster Road.

The new library will be:

- bigger in area and all on the same level.

- better designed for disabled people.

- more environmentally friendly.

- less expensive to manage and maintain.

We hope to open the new library in 2019 and the current library will remain open until the new one is ready for use.

The Council is keen to hear the views of library users, residents and local community and voluntary organisations on what they would like the new library to contain.
