Co-designed renewable energy centre designs reveal
Thank you to all residents who provided feedback on the energy centre designs for the Notting Dale Heat Network in December 2022.
Over 100 residents viewed the exhibits and had their say on plans for a renewable energy centre which is part of a new heat network for Lancaster West Estate. The architects have updated the designs to reflect your preferences and feedback. You can see what these look like at our next, and final, round of co-design exhibitions.
We are inviting residents to see the new designs and provide final feedback and comments. Following this we will submit a planning application in the coming months.

We’re delighted to announce Phase 2 of funding from the Future Neighbourhoods Programme!
The Future Neighbourhoods 2030 programme was launched by the Mayor of London in 2021 to deliver projects that support a green recovery from the coronavirus pandemic.
Notting Dale ward in North Kensington was selected as one of the two ‘future neighbourhoods’ to get funding for both projects and an environmental vision for the neighbourhood.
An additional £784,420 has now been awarded by the Mayor of London through Phase 2 of the fund, and the Council has secured a further £2.375 million with internal and external funding to tackle environmental challenges while addressing health and social inequalities and supporting all Lancaster West and other council-owned housing in the borough to become net-zero carbon by 2030 and the wider borough by 2040.
You can find out more about the Phase 1 and Phase 2 funded projects below!
Results from renewable energy centre co-design sessions are out!
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
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.
