Work starts on new homes & new sports centre in North Kensington

Work has begun to build 83 new homes and a brand-new multi-purpose sports facility for local school pupils and the community in North Kensington.

The Barlby Road development, which is part of our New Homes Delivery Programme, will offer 38 homes for social rent and 10 for key workers with the remaining at market rent.

As part of the scheme, there will also be  improvements to the communal gardens on Treverton Street and a new flexible studio unit for hire.

Cllr Kim Taylor-Smith, Lead Member for Grenfell Housing, Housing and Social Investment, said:

Despite the challenging climate in which we are working, we are determined to deliver as many homes as possible across the borough to relieve the pressure on our housing register.

Everyone deserves to have a roof over their head and a safe place to call home. Our New Homes Delivery Programme will deliver 600 new homes, 300 of which are at social rent which will mean many people who have been waiting years for a home will get the keys to their own place. All homes will be built to the same specification whether they are for social, intermediate or market rent. This is something we are extremely proud of.

It is also the aim to make this development as green as possible, so emphasis is being placed on sustainability with low energy lighting, enhanced insulation and air source heating to reduce fuel bills for residents.

Work is expected to be completed at Barlby Road and ready for residents to move in by the end of 2025.
