WE WANT YOUR VIEWS ON STRAND ALDWYCH PROPOSALS

Westminster City Council is asking people for their feedback to shape exciting and ambitious proposals for the Strand Aldwych area.

The council has published draft designs which build on and enhance the strengths of the area – its extraordinary cultural, educational and creative institutions, its diverse range of businesses and the established residential neighbourhoods nearby. 

The key improvements include: 
•    making it easier and safer to get around by removing the gyratory, having two-way traffic in Aldwych and removing it from part of the Strand 
•    improving public spaces across the whole area with an amazing new plaza proposed around St Mary le Strand Church
•    improving connections to South Bank, Covent Garden and the West End
•    creating a cultural and learning quarter by joining up the world-renowned organisations and institutions in the area and supporting them to showcase their amazing offer
•    tackling air quality issues as well as improving facilities for walking and cycling

The consultation runs until 13 March 2019. Visit the dedicated website -
www.strandaldwych.org - for full details and to share your views.

EVENTS THIS WEEK

Throughout the consultation, we are holding events around the district so people can meet the Strand Aldwych project team, ask questions and discuss their views. We have our first events taking place this week. On Thursday 7 February, we will be at the London School of Economics at 2 Houghton Street from 12pm-2pm. Then on Saturday 9 February, we will be at St Mary le Strand Church from 11am-3pm. We look forward to seeing you and hearing your views.
