Lowerwood Court Garages Transformation Project

Closes 11 Dec 2022

Opened 31 Oct 2022

Overview

The purpose of this survey is to build a baseline for any potential transformation of Lowerwood Court garages at Convent Estate into workspaces.

Although there have been proposals to redevelop the garages in the past, most notably the plans put forward by Second Home, the Council is now taking a fresh look at the site. The Council’s Planning, Property and Social Investment, and Housing services are involved in the conversations.

We are still at an early stage in the project, so it is not clear what type of new workspaces could be delivered. This will be determined through engagement with residents and businesses. For now, workspace means anywhere that people operate in or out of for work.

The operational model is also not fixed. Whether a not-for-profit organisation runs the workspaces or a for-profit operator, they will have to pay due regard to the wellbeing of residents. Any proposal should also seek to strike the right balance between financial returns and non-financial outcomes.

Any potential transformation will not require money from the Estate Improvement Budget and no service charges will be liable to housing tenants or leaseholders for the works. All electricity will be metered separately so will not add to residents’ bills either.

Why your views matter

By filling in this survey, you will help to shape any future transformation of the garages. You will help to identify key concerns and share your aspirations around how the transformation could benefit residents.

The results of the survey should be publicised by the new year. Your feedback will then be used to help make decisions on how to move forward with any garage transformation.

If you have any queries, require assistance filling in the survey, or require assistance in other languages, please contact the Growth and Delivery Team at GrowthandDeliveryTeam@rbkc.gov.uk or by phone on 020 7361 3012.
