City plan seminar with Westminster City Council

17 Jan 2019

Over 150 members joined us for the last WPA seminar of 2018 to discuss the draft Westminster City Plan.

After an initial presentation by Cabinet member Cllr Richard Beddoe, a panel discussion was chaired by Craig McWilliam, Vice Chair of WPA and Chief Executive of Grosvenor GBI. Members were able to hear directly from senior Westminster City Council councillors and officers on the key issues within the Plan including details on the draft mixed use policy, affordable housing, retail and wider use class flexibility and planning policies to support the future of Oxford Street.
