Answer for St Giles Development

Answered By: 
The Mayor

I have publicly suggested that the various landowners in the area get together to bring forward co-ordinated development proposals to maximise the potential of the area and regenerate the eastern end of Oxford Street and wider St. Giles area. To that end, my planners are engaging with all the principal interests including TfL and Design for London, and I have asked Design for London to carry out some masterplanning work looking at a number of sites in the St Giles area. Discussions have already taken place with some of the landowners in the area, and I hope the two borough councils covering the area will also engage positively in this process.
