Trellick and Edenham Way

The area between Trellick Tower and Elkstone Road, where the Edenham Way Old People’s Home once stood, has been empty for some time. The area is being used as play space and a temporary coach park while the Council, working with the local community, develops plans for the area.

Architects Levitt Bernstein studied the area to identify possibilities and limitations of developing the site. Read more about the work so far, and view some of the display materials presented to local people.

Levitt Bernstein has now completed the study and we are able to start the process to appoint architects to develop plans and design the new housing. We are choosing to use a formal process, which is governed by the European Union, to hire the architects. This is because the works will use public money and we also think this is the best way to get the best architects for the job. We expect this process to end in Summer 2014. We will then be able to start developing a planning application for the new housing on the site.

At the same time, planning officers at the Council will be developing a Supplementary Planning Document. This will provide guidance and principles for development in the area.

We think it will take around two years to appoint architects and put the planning application into place. We will continue to involve residents throughout the process.

If you have any questions or would like more information, please contact Gilly Tobin on 020 7361 2950 or email

We will also be meeting regularly with the Trellick Tower Residents’ Association and Edenham Way Residents’ Association to discuss the progress of the work and seek their views.
