Hogarth Road Public Realm Improvements

Closed 7 Dec 2023

Opened 26 Oct 2023

Feedback updated 10 Apr 2024

We asked

We asked for your views on the vision and proposal drawings for Hogarth Road and whether you support the improvements: widening the pavements, planting new trees and improving the street surface. We also asked what makes Hogarth Road special. 

You said

We received 66 responses to the survey and five email responses. 95 per cent of respondents said they support or strongly support the proposals. 

In answer to what makes Hogarth Road special, you said: 

  • It is the ‘front door’ to Earl’s Court, within close proximity to Earl's Court station, with vibrant local and independent businesses 
  • It is of historical and cultural significance in the Earls Court area 
  • There is opportunity to enhance the cafe culture of the street
  • It is a community within a community where people know and care for each other 

Most comments about the proposals fell under the following two themes: 

  • Respondents had a desire for the street to be made more pedestrian friendly, for it to be a well-maintained space and a meeting hub  
  • There is potential to improve the area 

Other comments fell under the following themes: 

  • There is a need to improve the safety of the road and pavements for all users  
  • More greening is needed 
  • The programme of works should be extended up to the pub on Hogarth Place  
  • Shopfront improvement should be encouraged or supported 
  • Pay parking bays support the area 

We did

Following the consultation and the support for the vision and proposed changes, we are making the following amendments to the proposals:  

  • Adding a Blue Badge disabled parking bay to the design in order to improve access to the District Centre 
  • Investigating moving the Police Box to Hogarth Road, so that it is still at the heart of Earl’s Court but in its own intentional setting 

The proposed changes would integrate with the York stone paving of Hogarth Place, which is in good condition, and therefore we are not intending to extend the scheme to the end of Hogarth Place.  

Although shopfront improvements do not fall within this streetscape project, we will continue to support improvements in line with our Shopfront Design Guide

Some of the visitors’ parking bays that will be lost through this scheme will be re-provided through the conversion of 30 metres of residents’ parking outside 14 to 24 Hogarth Road to six visitor’s parking bays. 


The Council would like to improve the public realm in Hogarth Road by widening the pavements, improving the street surface and planting new trees. 

Hogarth Road is highly visible as people exit Earl's Court station and is one of the oldest parts of Earl’s Court. The proposal would give the local community and visitors a high-quality space to enjoy and provide a pleasant setting for the vibrant collection of shops and small businesses. The scheme would be funded by the Council.  

Vision for Hogarth Road

This drawing is intended to give an impression of how public realm improvements could transform the street.

Please note, it is not a detailed proposal. Finishes and materials will be subject to detailed design.

Proposed Plan 

This plan shows various changes to Hogarth Road which, taking into consideration the initial feedback about the street from local people and businesses, would improve the public realm. We would like to hear your thoughts on the suggested changes.
