Neighbourhood

The designated StQW Neighbourhood Area is bounded by the A40 Westway to the south, the railway line (borough boundary) to the west, St Mark’s Road to the east, and Dalgarno Gardens to the north.  It includes the western part of the Oxford Gardens/St Quintin Estate Conservation Area, and the shopping parades at North Pole Road, St Helens Gardens, and Barlby Road.  It also includes the Latimer Road sections of the joint Freston Road/Latimer Employment Zone, as defined in the RBKC 2015 Consolidated Local Plan.

The originally proposed area also included the Eynham Road area in the London Borough of Hammersmith and Fulham.

Kensington and Chelsea Council formally designated that part of the originally proposed area within its borough in July 2013.  It also approved the StQW Neighbourhood Forum at the same time. Hammersmith and Fulham Council in September 2013 chose to designate part of the originally proposed area, as a separate and unnamed neighbourhood area, but refused to designate the StQW Neighbourhood Forum.

A map of the area designated within RBKC, for which a Draft Neighbourhood Plan has been prepared, can be seen below.  The boundary is shown in green.  The area includes some 1,700 households, as well as shops and businesses.  Latimer Road is the main office area within the neighbourhood.
