QUESTIONS YOU MAY HAVE
We have been working with the local community over the past year, and we would like you to continue working with you on as many aspects of the design as possible
We have reviewed the feedback received so far, and will undertake consultation on an updated scheme in the coming months.
You can visit our consultation page here to keep up to date.
How will you ensure that the engagement process is accessible and represents the diversity of the area?
We will aim to get as many people and local groups as possible involved, through our website, leaflets and socially distanced pop-ups.
We have been reaching out to local groups and people. If you lead, or know of, a group or organisation we should speak to, please let us know by getting in touch.
We recognise there is a real opportunity to work with local children and young people in developing our proposals too, and we plan to engage with schools to find out what they think about their local area and understand their ideas for the development.
An overview of timescales is set out in the diagram below:
The Kensal Gasworks development will contribute to the borough’s housing needs and will deliver in the region of 650 – 750 new, high-quality homes including an aspiration to deliver 35% affordable housing.
St William would work closely with the Council to agree the appropriate mix and size of the new homes to meet local need.
St William is the developer for Kensal Gasworks.
St William is a joint venture between the Berkeley Group and National Grid (who currently owns the site), specialising in the redevelopment of redundant gasworks sites across London and the south east. They are the developer bringing forward the Kensal Gasworks site.
St William is working closely with neighbouring landowners in order to deliver the best development possible and maximise the benefits for the local community. By working particularly closely with the design team for Ballymore and Sainsbury’s, who own land next to Kensal Gasworks, we can ensure a comprehensive approach in the northern part of the Kensal Canalside Opportunity Area.
A land ownership map is shown below.
The Kensal Canalside Opportunity Area has been allocated as one of 38 Opportunity Areas in London within the London Plan and the Council’s Local Plan. It will bring at least 3,500 new homes and 2,000 new jobs to the local area.

How does this fit with the Kensal Canalside draft Supplementary Planning Document (SPD) that the Council are preparing?
The SPD is a planning document that will guide the development of the Kensal Canalside area and provides additional guidance for us as developers. The SPD was adopted by the Council in July 2021.
