Earl's Court Development Update

5 Mar 2023

Earl’s Court Exhibition Centre – New development

The Earls Court Development Company (ECDC) is progressing its consultation on what should be developed on the grounds of the former Earl’s Court Exhibition Centre through monthly thematic sessions with residents. Their current plan is to submit a formal planning application for approval to the two impacted Boroughs towards the end of 2023.

The magnitude and materiality of the site mean that many Kensington & Chelsea residents will be impacted directly or indirectly by what will end up being developed as well as by the construction phase. Specific topics worth particular attention from residents include:

  • maximum building height with a current ECDC proposal to develop 40-storey buildings in two specific spots,
  • capacity of the infrastructure to cope with the planned development during and after the construction phase (roads, public transportation, water & waste management, electricity),
  • size and significance of the cultural venue due to be developed, and its capacity to attract footfall from outside the Borough

The Earls Court Development Company have a presentation hub at Conversation Corner, Lillie Road.
