We the undersigned petition Westminster City Council to not proceed with any proposal to build on the Luxborough Tower playground, immediately adjacent to Luxborough Street W1, because it is listed as a Protected Open Space in the Council’s City Plan. More details
We petition Westminster City Council to honour its existing Open Space policy (CS34 in the City Plan) and not allow any building on the Luxborough Street playground.
The policy states: “The Council will protect and enhance Westminster’s open space. “The overall and localised shortage of open space and the difficulty of finding new sites make it essential to resist the loss of even the smallest open spaces."
The future management of the space should be the subject of a consultation with all local stakeholders, with a view to ensuring that the space is managed for the benefit of the local community and is not a financial burden on the leaseholders of Luxborough Tower.
