In a landmark decision, Westminster City Council has resolved to grant planning permission for the restoration and retrofitting of the Grade II listed All Saints Convent and Chapel on Margaret Street. The historic All Saints Convent Chapel, constructed in 1860, is set to undergo a transformative revival, breathing new life into this iconic site.
The decision, reached on Tuesday 23rd January when Westminster councillors voted unanimously to grant planning permission, is a significant milestone for the ambitious project. The comprehensive plans include the restoration of the chapel and the retrofit of the adjoining convent building into 21 serviced apartments, providing short and medium-term stays. Additionally, a wellness courtyard garden, co-working space, and gym facilities will be integrated into the development.
The All Saints Convent Chapel is poised to become an event space for residents and the wider community. Notably, the chapel has been also been granted a marriage license, further enhancing its role as a versatile venue.
Unity Real Estate looks forward to collaborating with Westminster City Council in realising this exciting and transformative project, bringing the All Saints Convent Chapel back into the public sphere for generations to come.
Finalisation of planning permission is anticipated in the coming weeks, contingent upon the conclusion of S106 agreements.
