Paddington Green Police Station

Please note: The second round of consultation for Paddington Green Police Station has now closed. Many thanks to all those who took the time to review the proposals and provided feedback. This consultation website will remain live so the local community can continue to contact us and let us know their thoughts.

About The Project

Berkeley has identified a fantastic opportunity to deliver much needed private and affordable homes at the former Paddington Green Police Station. The proposals deliver significant public realm improvements, repair a broken streetscape, invest in and transform this incredibly prominent central London crossroads.

Following our initial consultation late last year, we received valuable feedback from the local community. From this, we have heard what local residents currently value and what their hopes are for the scheme. Thank you to all who provided feedback, this has helped shape the revised proposals and the project team are delighted to present the updated scheme for the Paddington Green Police Station.

Berkeley strives to create welcoming and inclusive neighbourhoods with homes of all tenures provided, alongside beautiful landscaped spaces for both residents and the public to enjoy. We believe our plans, which have been shaped by public comments, will transform the site to create thriving spaces for people to live, work, visit and enjoy.

This online consultation has been designed to ensure that the local community can be updated on our proposals and have their say before we submit a planning application in March 2021.

Live Webinar

As part of our consultation on the updated proposals, we hosted two live webinars where the project team presented the proposals and the local community had the opportunity to ask questions. We held the first webinar on 25th February and the second on 3rd March.

Both recording of this can be watched below.

Responding To Your Feedback

Feedback from the initial consultation has made a valuable contribution to towards shaping our final proposals. As a result of the initial feedback we recieved the following elements of the proposals have been updated:

  • Height: Reduction of building heights to a maximum of 32 storeys, reducing homes to 555 in total
  • Family Homes: Increased number of larger family sized homes for socially rented families
  • Accessibility: Improved pedestrian and cycle connectivity and entrances
  • Affordable workspace: An enlarged community space which is to be provided as an affordable workspace
  • Sustainability: Focus on sustainable development with inclusion of triple glazing to reduce energy consumption, high-quality air filtration for residents and an increase in bio-diversity.
  • Public realm: Public realm was a top priority for survey respondents. We have therefore ensured our proposals go beyond our legal boundary to provide high-quality public areas. We continue to work with TfL and Westminster City Council to improve our proposals.
  • Traffic/parking: Ensure the development is a car-free scheme and contain as much servicing within the basement to reduce congestion on roads.
  • Ground floor: Creation of an enhanced ground floor through new flexible commercial space designed to activate the area.
  • Improved safety: Better lighting throughout the development along with better connections creating natural surveillance.
