Westminster Chief Executive visits Queen’s Park Ward


Westminster Council’s Chief Executive, Charlie Parker, visited Queen’s Park Ward on 27th August to familiarise himself with the area and understand some of the hot issues. We drew up a schedule of sites for his visit and officers to meet. The visit comprised:

• Meeting with representatives of the Queen’s Park Community Council and the manager of the Beethoven Centre
• Visiting Mozart estate to view the derelict estate office site
• Viewing sites in Lancefield Street
• Jubilee Sports Centre and the surrounding ex-Genesis social housing which are in very poor condition
• Stansbury Square to discuss the latest ASB problems
• A stop-over at Avenues Youth Club
• Queens Park Gardens to view the Wildlife and Children’s play areas;
• Ilbert Street, Droop Street and Queens Park Court
• Shops in Harrow Road (including All Stars Boxing Club)
• The declining state of Canal Terrace as the ‘gateway to Westminster’
• The junction at Ladbroke Grove/Kilburn Lane and the need to improve pedestrian safety
• Moberly Centre site
• Fifth Avenue housing improvements
• The shopping area at the top end of Kilburn Lane and
• The proposed HS2 vent shaft and electricity substation site at Premier Corner


During the course of the visit we pointed out many of the detailed problems and issues that need to be tackled.

Councillor Paul Dimoldenberg said;

“We were delighted to welcome the Chief Executive to Queen’s Park to see for himself what is happening. We raised a number of issues with him and we will continue to press for action on local priorities on behalf of local residents. In particular, there are now a number of sites in the Ward that will be blighted by developments over the next few years and we will be asking what can be done to ensure the local quality of life is not badly affected in this period”
