Minutes:

Councillor Shama Tatler, Cabinet Member for Regeneration, Growth, Employment and Skills, introduced the report and reminded Cabinet that the regeneration of South Kilburn was a fifteen year programme that was approximately half way through.

 

She stated that the programme would deliver around 2,400 new homes of which 1,200 will be made available for social rent for existing South Kilburn, secure council tenants. To date 1073 new homes had been delivered with 60% (639) new homes having been made available for existing secure tenants of South Kilburn. Woodhouse Urban Park was opened to the public in May 2016 and South Kilburn residents were able to utilise St Augustine’s Sports Hall.

 

Councillor Tatler stated that the South Kilburn Masterplan review took place in 2016, and that the community was at the heart of our decision making process. She stated that the Council had taken an inclusive and participatory approach to the consultation and engaged with residents and stakeholders of South Kilburn with extensive local consultation from July through to December, which directly fed into the drafting of a revised South Kilburn Supplementary Planning Document 2017 (SPD). The SPD was adopted by Cabinet on the 19 June 2017 and would be an important document in determining how the area continues to transform over the next 10-15 years.

 

Councillor Tatler stated that the South Kilburn Regeneration Programme also included the delivery of a new larger high quality urban park and an improved public realm, a new local primary school, new health facilities, new retail facilities, an Enterprise Hub and Community Space, improved environmental standards and a South Kilburn District Energy System. The South Kilburn Programme has been recognised for exemplar design for new build homes as well as landscape projects and has won a number of prestigious awards.
