Collaborating with the local community

COLLABORATING WITH THE LOCAL COMMUNITY

A new team, and a new approach.

We are sensitive to the history of the site, and experiences of the local community under the site’s previous ownership.

We’re drawing up a brand-new plan for the area, and taking a new approach to how it will develop.

We want the future of Earl's Court to be designed by the many hands of local people. By listening to what your priorities, ideas, and aspirations are for your neighbourhood.

It’s important to us that we get as many people involved in helping us design this project as possible. We will be holding many different events that we’d love you to participate in.

We are committed to making this progress as inclusive and accessible as possible, and will be utilising a range of tools, events, and meeting opportunities – both virtually and in-person when we can.

We’re based in the local community – at the Project Rooms on 16-18 Empress Place, SW6 1TT in Earl's Court – and we’re always open for feedback and suggestions.

Dedicated consultation website

We have a dedicated consultation website where you can share your views and comment on plans as they develop.

To gather all your ambitions and aspirations for the area and the emerging plan there is a short survey on the site which we hope you will complete.

Community Hub

The previous owners of the site erected a temporary building on a plot of land located off Aisgill Avenue, that lies next to West Kensington and Gibbs Green estates, then known as the Replacement Homes Suite. Now that we have handed the estates back to Hammersmith & Fulham Council, we want to transform this derelict building into a new Community Hub. It will be used typically by a maximum of 50 people at any one time.

We want the future of this space to be shaped by local people, with your ideas and suggestions guiding how the Community Hub and garden is used. We are also keen to hear your suggestions for a new name for the building.

Warwick Road Apron

ECDC have recently opened up part of the site on Warwick Road, where the former entrance to the Exhibition Centre used to be. This temporary space is now home to an art installation known as the ‘Pleasure Garden’ which was created in partnership with the Kensington + Chelsea Festival, and Underbelly.

We are now starting to explore ideas on how this space can best be used after the art installation leaves the site in September. We want the future of this space, which we call ‘Warwick Road Apron’ to be shaped by the local community and so we are asking for your ideas and suggestions.

344-350 Old Brompton Road

ECDC is bringing forward proposals for the redevelopment of 344-350 Old Brompton Road.

The plans include a ground plus four storey block which will be for housing, which goes up to six storeys on the corner of Eardley Crescent and nine storeys at the south west corner facing West Brompton Station.

We want this development to act as a marker and gateway of the emerging plan for the main Earls Court site and to provide a sense of arrival from West Brompton Station. To view these plans click here.
