The boundaries of the Edgware Road Housing Zone include all properties within Penfold Place. Investment elsewhere in the Housing Zone may lead to opportunities for improvements to Miles Building in the future. The London Rental Standard is an accreditation standard for landlords across London and boroughs are being encouraged to promote the London Rental Standard to landlords and agents, especially within housing zones.
