Westfield expansion plans

"Much of the scheme comprises high-rise luxury apartments and most will be unaffordable to even wealthy local residents and is clearly targeted at investors or those able to pay city centre prices," he said.


Seem like the conservative policy we dont want British to be able to afford housing, a Borough more interested in creating shopping centers rather than homes for people to live in.

Sounds eminently sensible to me. Turning Shepherd's Bush into a place that the wealthy would want to inhabit takes pressure off the Fulhams and Putneys of London and will improve the overall quality of housing stock in west London.

It pushs people into other boroughs, reduces the number of homes in the area, increases pollution levels.the problem is that they are doing the same in other areas of the borough, yet they keep telling everyone about social responsibility etc.. yet they themselves respect their own rules.

And an extra 1,522 homes reduces the number of homes how exactly?

well they will take down the homes that are there already, how else are they going to get free land in central london.when they say they are building x amount of homes plus shopping center were are they getting the land from.
The same thing in the other part of the same borough bring down 16000 homes and building 6000 homes which 80% are none affordable, kicking out the poor from those 16000 homes.
Gone are the days of a mix social group in areas, they are creating large us style gettos in london.

Actually, there's a fair bit of space to the north of Westfield, and I imagine they're going to build on that.

I'm fairly neutral - London has seen an orgy of 'luxury' flat-building over the past 12 years or so. I just wish someone would build something where families can live...

you are missing the flats on both sides H&F Council also recognises that many people on council housing estates do not have access to the same life opportunities as others do. We want to break down the barriers that can lead to unemployment, poverty and poor health by creating mixed communities where everyone has the same chance to move up in life.

The council's preferred way forward is to consider rebuilding phased redevelopment of White City estate, Batman Close and Wood Lane estate over the next 15-20 years to ensure that residents benefit from the highest quality housing with a greater range of housing options.

Heh - once helped out organising a party in one of those warehouses in the '80s. Couldn't work out why there were pools of odd fluorescent green liquid and a scattering of boxes marked 'ACME'. A couple of months later, "Who Framed Roger Rabbit" came out and all was explained...

In that case they should concentrate on transforming the other side of the road where the BBC is located... :P


But I see your point, conservatives don't need jobs, they all live off the profits of their land ownership.

Will come in quite handy for the parents of those Chinese students who study out of Imperial West.

Keep an eye on your child and investment at the same time.

Meanwhile, for those of lesser means, the future's not so bright.
