The Boundary

The boundary, as designated by Westminster City Council is shown below.  THis represents a slightly larger area than we proposed, due to the decision to include both sides of Great Portland Street.

Following discussions with various neighbouring areas, with local landowners and a public meeting on 13th November 2013, alterations were made to the proposed area boundaries.  These are:

  • Removal of the Broadcasting House site, and the block north of the BBC.  In response to resident requests and representation from The Marylebone Association and the International Student House.
  • Removal of the area covered by the Regent Street Conservation Area and ownership of Crown Estates.  In response to discussions with landowners and Soho Society.
  • In response to Westminster City Council’s decision, the FitzWest area now includes most of the properties that lie on the  west side of Great Portland Street, to ensure that the street is considered as an entity.

We thank all those who helped us arrive at what we now hope is a consensual boundary.

  1. It is unclear from your map as to whether Gresse Street is included in Fitzwest. One side of Gresse Street is in Camden and includes a council block and the other side is in Westminster and includes the Fashion Academy.

  2. Dear Gary,
    Thanks for your question. Yes, the south and west side of Gresse Street is included in the Fitzrovia West proposal, because that is in Westminster and the north and east side will be included in the Fitzrovia East proposals, that is part of the Borough of Camden. Our boundary matches the borough boundary from Euston Road, down to Oxford Street. We’ve drawn that boundary because we recognise that LB Camden planning policies and very different to Westminster City Council policies.
