Kensington and Chelsea Council announce £57m for estate

Kensington and Chelsea Council are set to invest £57m to transform Lancaster West Estate in west London.

According to a report to the council, the project will deliver “a model 21st century social housing estate”.

Buildings in the estate will be fitted with double glazing, new kitchens and updated heating systems.

The funding is on top of a £32m pledged by the government to support Kensington and Chelsea College and the Grenfell community. Lancaster West Estate is located next to Grenfell Tower.

As part of the initiative, twelve jobs, an apprenticeship and 16 training courses will be created.

Deputy council leader Kim Taylor-Smith said: “The refurbishment of the estate continues to be a huge priority for us.

“The work is guided by the priorities of residents. I’m proud this funding will help us to create a truly great place to live.”
