Lancaster West Future Neighbourhood Vision

What is the Lancaster West Future Neighbourhood Vision?

The Lancaster West Neighbourhood Team (LWNT) has secured funding from the One Public Estate (OPE) programme to help deliver a Future Neighbourhood Vision for the Lancaster West Estate and broader area. 

The LWNT has secured funding from the One Public Estate (OPE) programme to help deliver a Future Neighbourhood Vision to support: 
  • Join up services in the area based on a thorough understanding of needs and wants of residents
  • Bring a holistic approach to coordinating investment, new homes at social rent, and improving the public realm in the area 
  • Improve visioning around transport, connectivity and accessibility across the area 
  • Help establish a framework of ongoing health interventions in partnership with the NHS 
  • Place a green recovery at the heart of Grenfell recovery. 

How are we Co-Designing the Lancaster West Future Neighbourhood Vision?

We are working with our partners Arup who have pulled together a team of designers, planners, sustainability and engagement experts to support take us through this journey in co-designing this Future Neighbourhood Vision together with residents and key stakeholders across Lancaster West Estate. 

Arup is a global firm with experience delivering similar projects involving co-design and a community-centred approach. There will be an opportunity to meet the team as they start to engage with residents on the Estate.

Help us co-design the future for Training and Employment services on the Lancaster West Estate

Co-Design Workshop for Training and Employment services is being held on Saturday, 15 January 2022 between 11:00am - 4:30pm at Baseline Studios. 

Together with our partners Arup, we have been working with residents to jointly develop the Lancaster West Future Neighbourhood Vision. After hearing your feedback and what you have been telling us is most important to you, we have decided to explore the Training and Employment Centre as an exemplar project, co-designing potential training and employment services offered on and around the Lancaster West Estate. 

This co-design event is your chance to shape training and employment services on the Lancaster West Estate, where you want them to be and how you want them to be delivered. The information we collect on this day will inform how we move forward in trying to deliver this vision.

We will have: 
  • Activities and snacks for kids 
  • Group Discussions (online or in person) where you will have a chance to sit with Arup and share your ideas 
  • A free meal and chance to win prizes if you participate in one of the Group Discussions  
Group Discussions: While you are welcome to drop in and chat with us all day, we are inviting you to talk with Arup to share your experiences, aspirations and ideas for the future training and employment services in one of our Group Discussions (online or in person):

  • 1:30pm - 2:30pm Young People (16 – 24 years old)

On top of being involved in the designing of this potential project, anyone that participates in one of these Group Discussions will receive
