Westminster City Council (WCC) is seeking to appoint a Landscape Architect to take on the Lead Designer role on Phase 1 of the Church Street Green Spine project (herein referred to as the ‘Green Spine’) which is part of the award winning Church Street Infrastructure and Public Realm Plan (IPRP). The design and implementation of this first phase of work will be an opportunity to provide the model for the further development of the award winning IPRP.
The implementation of the Church Street IPRP is an opportunity to create ‘London’s most liveable neighbourhood’ with an enduring legacy not only for its residents, but also for London and other UK cities. The greening of the neighbourhood will create a strong identity for the place, making it a unique part of London, as well as bringing a host of social, economic and environmental benefits. The Church Street IPRP acknowledges that there is a need for a holistic and dramatic step-change in the public realm in order to address many of the issues in the area and create one of ‘London’s most liveable neighbourhoods’ and a model for future estate and neighbourhood renewal in Westminster.
