New @CityWestminster Team To Deal With Issues With Basement Developments

Residents from across the West End, and Westminster as a whole, have been in touch with myself and other councillors, highlighting issues and concern over local basement developments.

In response I am pleased that Westminster City Council launched a new initiative on September 1st to help deal with these issues.

As part of the new initiative there is a new team dedicated to dealing with issues caused by basement developments.

Importantly, this new service will be funded by a levy on those building the new basements, which will work in conjunction with the council’s new ‘Code of Construction Practice’, which sets out the best practices for building sites including basements.

I will keep residents updated on any developments with this new team.

If you would like to find out more about events going on around Westminster, or about my activities as a Councillor for West End Ward, please sign up for my monthly email updates here.
