Residents are being invited to find out more and have their say on Imperial College’s plans to develop part of its campus in White City.
The draft proposals for the next phase of the college’s White City campus will go on display at consultation events later this month.
The university, which focuses on science, engineering, medicine and business, is inviting residents to come and view the proposals and give their feedback.
“We’ve made a long-term commitment to White City. We are already working with organisations across the area to make a real difference to the community,” said Professor Neil Alford, associate provost (academic planning), at Imperial College London.
“As part of this, we want local people to come and find out more about what’s happening, and give us their feedback on our draft proposals for the White City campus.
“This is part of our commitment to involve our neighbours in the community at an early stage and long into the future.”
The proposals cover the part of the campus south of the Westway (A40), formerly the Unigate Dairy.
View the plans & have your say
The proposals will be on display at the following locations and times where you can visit and give your feedback:
- Friday 19 May – 3pm to 8pm, White City Community Centre, India Way, W12 7QT
- Saturday 20 May – 10am to 3pm, Brickfields Hall, Wood Lane Studios, Shinfield Street, W12 0HN.
The college said it will consider all feedback received before a planning application is submitted to Hammersmith & Fulham Council later this year.
Growing with the community
Imperial already has a long-term presence in White City with several buildings either open or under construction on the part of the campus north of the Westway (A40).
Later this year, Imperial will open The Invention Rooms – a new facility on Wood Lane providing workshop facilities, design studios and meeting spaces where local residents can bring their ideas to life.
Research and tech-focused businesses are now moving into the Translation & Innovation Hub (I-HUB), a building dedicated to companies which turn research into new products and services.
The northern part of the campus is also home to 600 postgraduate students, and a new residential building is under construction.
