Regeneration: transforming our borough

Hammersmith & Fulham is a borough of contrasts. We have the fourth highest house prices of any local authority in the UK and are blessed with a fantastic built heritage, with 45 conservation areas covering almost half the borough. Conversely, 27 per cent of our residents live in neighbourhoods categorised as the 20 per cent most deprived nationally.

Regeneration projects in the borough

Our Core Strategy sets the spatial vision for development in the borough over the next 20 years. Key to this vision is regenerating the most deprived parts of the borough.

Hammersmith & Fulham’s Core Strategy (pdf)

We have identified five key regeneration areas:

1. Old Oak

2. White City Opportunity Area

3. Hammersmith Town Centre and Riverside

4. Earls Court and West Kensington Opportunity Area

5. South Fulham Riverside Regeneration Area

These regeneration areas can together deliver substantial economic growth in the borough over the next few decades. We are keen to attract significant new investment from developers in these areas so that we can build new and better homes, create jobs, break down the barriers caused by big housing estates and create mixed and balanced communities.

Borough regeneration guide

We have produced a Borough Regeneration Guide, which gives more detail on the current regeneration projects in Hammersmith & Fulham.
