£452m Earls Court community benefit package agreed
Another major milestone in the £8 billion redevelopment of Earls Court was reached yesterday as an agreement on a £452 million package of benefits for the area was signed.
Hammersmith & Fulham (H&F) Council, the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea (RBKC), Transport for London (TfL) and scheme developer Capital & Counties Properties Plc (Capco) all agreed the package of community benefits, which is known as a ‘106 agreement’, yesterday (Nov 14).
As part of the agreement Capco has agreed that a new primary school, a new leisure centre, new health facilities and community and cultural spaces will all be built as the approved scheme is developed. Thirty seven acres of green open space will be provided, including a new five acre park and there will also be significant improvements to the transport infrastructure including increased capacity at Earls Court, West Kensington and West Brompton Underground stations.
