Cabinet agreed the recommendations to revert the Victoria Opportunity Area boundary’ as defined by the current Westminster City Plan (November 2016).

More details from petition creator

Any extension of the Victoria Opportunity Area (VOA) adjacent to or encroaching on existing residential or conservation areas will encourage further intensive developments which would have unacceptable impacts on those areas. Therefore the signatories to this petition strongly request that, in the City Plan 2040 currently being prepared, no part of the VOA should be extended beyond the boundary adopted in the London Plan (and proposed to be retained in the updated Plan). The VOA is described as follows for the London Plan: “The station, the airspace above its tracks and approaches, and nearby sites have significant potential for mixed-use intensification, capitalising on enhancement to the public transport interchange and improvements to accessibility and capacity.” Extensions of the VOA in the WCC Plan encroach on Belgravia, Westminster Cathedral and the Christchurch Gardens and Broadway areas. They extend on both sides of Victoria Street from Palace Street to Great Smith Street where they threaten the setting of Westminster Abbey and the Palace of Westminster. Email peter@harley1.net for a map of the proposed VOA changes.
