Answered By: 
The Mayor

London Underground's maintenance facility at Lillie Bridge Depot is within the Earls Court and West Kensington Opportunity Area and has the potential to provide 1,800 much needed new homes on land currently occupied by historic operational facilities.

TfL has completed a study which concludes that it is feasible to relocate the depot functions from Lillie Bridge Depot to Acton Town Depot, thereby creating a new manufacturing and maintenance centre of excellence at Acton Town Depot without impacting on services and freeing up the land at Lillie Bridge Depot for housing. Further studies are currently being undertaken in consultation with the trade unions. No decisions have yet been made and no development is likely before the mid-2020s.
