Results from renewable energy centre co-design sessions are out!

January 2022 

In December Lancaster West Neighbourhood Team held a 3-day co-design event for Lancaster West, local residents and leisure centre users to tell us what they think of our renewable energy centre design proposals.  

The energy centre was being proposed for sites in and around Kensington Leisure Centre which includes the current boiler room at Camelford Walk, and a warm water store feature is planned for the public space around the leisure centre.  

We shared an early design concept and proposed locations to get resident feedback and preferences.

You can find more information on the results on our Notting Dale Heat Network page.

Resident secures dream job through LancWest Works programme

December 2022 

Lancaster West Neighbourhood Team is delighted to have been able to help Lancaster West resident Amina find full-time work. 

She has just started as a Community Support Worker with local partner the Clement James Centre. Amina was part of LWNT’s LancWest Works programme which was set up to help local residents find employment and training opportunities. 

“I had been looking for work for a while. If Khadra hadn’t invited me to the fair I would not have found out about the opportunity at Clement James,” Amina said. 

LancWest Works is a rolling opportunity to help residents in North Kensington gain new skills and employment. You can find the latest opportunities by following the link below.

National Tree Week is marked on Lancaster West with a visit by HRH Duke of Kent

November 2022 

The Duke planted a new variety of plum tree especially cultivated to commemorate the late Queen Elizabeth’s 70-year reign. 

The Duke was able to meet community gardeners, garden volunteers, members of the Lancaster West Residents' Association, residents from the estate and the Tree Council, some of whom assisted with the planting. 

The new planting is part of LWNT's commitment to creating a garden estate to support residents to grow, eat and share food together. This innovative programme is enabling residents to gain gardening training, experience and confidence to volunteer and find employment. 

James Caspell, Neighbourhood Director of LWNT said: “We are committed to transforming Lancaster West into a garden estate in partnership with residents, as a key part of becoming a carbon-neutral neighbourhood by 2030. Gardening has been an entry point for many residents to access the services they need, including, housing, health, training and employment, and therefore an important part of Grenfell recovery for the community as a whole.”
