Westminster City Council adopted City Plan 2019 – 204027th April 2021 / Posted by Rachael Aldridge
At a full council on 21st April 2021, Westminster City Council’s City Plan 2019 – 2040 was formally adopted and will now become the city’s new Local Plan.
The new City Plan will replace all current policies in Westminster’s City Plan (November 2016) and saved policies in the Unitary Development Plan (2007). The City Plan 2019 – 2040 outlines an ambitious strategy to make Westminster one of the best places to live, work and play. This plan will equip the city to adapt to changes which have been brought about in the last year with appropriate policies aligned to new government guidance and legislation.
The City Plan focuses on creating a city for all to enjoy with more affordable homes, sustainable developments which are conducive to their aim of becoming a carbon neutral city by 2040 and flexible policies which will enable Westminster to continue to be a city of unique character but a contemporary destination for residents and visitors alike.
