Question

Do you support the view of the Minister for Decentralisation that any decision to transfer the Gibbs Green and West Kensington estates into a resident-controlled community housing association will take precedence over the Earl's Court and West Kensington Opportunity Area plans, and not the other way around?

Any decision by the Minister for Decentralisation to transfer the Gibbs Green and West Kensington estates into a resident-controlled community housing association would take account of regeneration schemes in the wider area, including those being developed in the draft Earl's Court and West Kensington Opportunity Area Joint Supplementary Planning Document. Similarly the draft Earl's Court and West Kensington Opportunity Area Joint Supplementary Planning Document will take account of the implications of any transfer should this occur before it is finalised.
