Westminster Community Homes has a development programme which consists of a mixture of property acquisitions and some new build programmes.
We have also designed our own specification which provides a superior finish compared to most housing providers in our sector. This specification will continue to evolve and change as we strive for continual improvement.
Ladbroke Grove / Victoria Wharf
Westminster Community Homes have carried out a development at 348-352 Ladbroke Grove to create 22 homes.
The works were completed in January 2018.

This development was completed in March 2017 and comprise of 8 new homes above office accommodation.
These were let as Social Rented units through the City Council's Choice Based Lettings.
Mozart Development comprises of 6 x 2 bed and 2 x 3 bed flats.
Orchardson Street Demonstration Homes
Westminster Community Homes is working closely with the City Council to deliver the housing renewal programme. As part of this project, Westminster Community Homes delivered three x 3 bedroom flats.
These flats were designed by a group of local residents called the Church Street Design Team. Each flat was built with slight differences, for example curtains or blinds, carpet or laminate flooring, or a separate kitchen or lounge with a kitchen diner included to create an open plan area. When the flats were completed they were opened as show flats and local residents were invited to come and look around the properties and give their feedback. They are now homes for three local families who were previously overcrowded.
