Opportunity Area

The Earls Court site is formerly the site of the famous Earls Court Exhibition Centre, located in Zone 1, which was demolished several years ago leaving a cleared site circa 40 acres. It is also home to London Underground’s Lillie Bridge Depot and several buildings and sheds, The site straddles two London boroughs - the Royal Borough of Kensington & Chelsea (RBKC) and the London Borough of Hammersmith & Fulham (LBHF).

The Mayor of London has identified the site as an Opportunity Area – an area which will be important to deliver the homes and jobs London needs for the future.In November 2022, Earls Court Partnership Limited completed the purchase of Lillie Bridge Depot and associated land from Transport for London (TfL). The transfer of the depot completed the masterplan land assembly, with the land forming a key part of the Earls Court masterplan site. Following the purchase, Lillie Bridge Depot has been leased back to TfL and will remain an operational site supporting the London Underground network while TfL assess if and how functions will be relocated.
