15 April 2023 | What does the Pimlico Neighbourhood Plan say about the Queen Mother Sports Centre?
- Westminster City Council and any promoters must ensure that any development of the Queen Mother Sports Centre and within the surrounding block is not too tall and doesn’t represent “creep” from Victoria (Pimlico Neighbourhood Plan Policy PIM 10 covers building heights).
- The existing role of the Queen Mother Sports Centre as a community leisure
facility should be retained. Redevelopment proposals must ensure that the
leisure facility continues to serve the local community and meet Westminsterʼs needs (Policy PIM 23).
- The surrounding terrace in Upper Tachbrook Street (in the Pimlico Conservation Area) and the listed terrace on Gillingham Street must be preserved or enhanced (Policy PIM 23).
- Proposals should explore opportunities to deliver a permanent public pedestrian route through from Wilton Road to Vauxhall Bridge Road, the provision of accessible open space and/or improvements to the public realm in Wilton Road itself (Policy PIM 23).
Full details of these and other policies are in the Pimlico Neighbourhood Plan.
