BOLTON STREET & CURZON STREET

FM Conway Ltd and WSP are acting on behalf of Westminster City Council to seek your comments on public realm improvements in Bolton Street and Curzon Street, in connection with the redevelopment of No. 56 Curzon Street.

The proposals are shown on the attached drawing No. CSWWES1056-CON-01 and include the following:

Public Realm Improvements

  • Building out and repaving the footway on the south-east side of Curzon Street, between Clarges Street and Bolton Street;
  • Repaving the footway on the south-west side of Bolton Street along the development frontage;
  • Replacement of the existing tree and the proposed provision of two additional trees on the south-east side of Curzon Street;
  • Resurfacing the carriageways within the extent of the scheme;
  • Improvements to the “zebra” crossing at the junction of Bolton Street and Curzon Street to provide additional footway space and increased visibility for pedestrians and vehicles;
  • Three additional cycle stands outside No. 56 Curzon Street;
  • Upgraded street lighting within the extent of the scheme;
  • The provision of an informal drop-off bay on Curzon Street;
  • The installation of public artwork on the corner of Bolton Street and Curzon Street.


Traffic Management Changes

The public realm improvements include various changes to existing parking provision and waiting and loading restrictions which necessitate the making of Traffic Management Orders.

Details of the changes are set out in the attached Notice of Proposals, together with the City Council’s Statement of Reasons, and information regarding single and double yellow lines.

We would be pleased to receive any observations or comments you may wish to make on the proposals, in writing, by 7th April 2021, quoting the above reference in any response.

At the end of the consultation period all responses received by this date will be forwarded to the City Council for consideration. The City Council will then decide whether to proceed with, modify, or abandon the proposals.

If approved, the works are anticipated to commence in September 2021 and will take approximately 16 weeks to construct.

The City Council is keen that you discuss your kerbside delivery needs with your delivery and courier companies to ensure that their needs are fully understood and conveyed to the City Council when you respond to this consultation.

Also, if your business regularly receives guests from taxis, private hire vehicles and coaches, then please also advise us of this information in your response.

If you should require any further information, please contact me on (020) 3116 5995.

Kind Regards,
Jack Henry
