What will be built?

  • 12 for rent to key workers from Westminster’s intermediate tenancy list
  • 31 for rent at the Mayor’s London Living Rent levels
  • A new bigger community centre on Elgin Avenue
  • A new bigger nursery and community offices
  • A facelift for existing homes on the Elgin estate

  • Improved play facilities
  • Improved security
  • Lifts in the new archway blocks that will also serve existing flats in four storey blocks on Athens and Kincardine gardens

How much will it cost?

  • Seventeen and a half Million pounds

How will it be funded?

  • £4.3 million from Westminster City Council
  • £3.9million Affordable Housing Fund
  • £400,000 Community Land Fund
  • £9 million from bank loans and from the existing temporary accommodation scheme. WECH will borrow this and repay it from the rents that will be charged on the 43 new flats for rent and from its existing homeless scheme. When the loan has been repaid we will be able to let these flats at WECH rents.

Will rents be increased to pay for the scheme?

  • No. The financing of the scheme comes from the income generated from the rents charged and the grant from Westminster City Council.
