Our cafe: Westminster Labour supports Pimlico eaterie under threat from development

my_cafe.pngAcross Westminster, much-loved local restaurants, cafés and pubs are being lost to luxury residential conversions - and Westminster Council's Labour Group is fighting just the latest one.

Councillor Adam Hug, on behalf of Westminster Labour Group, has written in opposition to the cynical plans to convert the popular My Cafe at 93 Charlwood Street, Pimlico SW1V, into luxury flats.

Incredibly, this is something the Council’s planners are currently supporting - despite the Council’s protestations that they try to prevent such damaging commercial to residential conversions.

Similarly, after listening to local people, the Labour Group is supporting efforts by the Cambridge Street Kitchen at 52 Charlwood Street to have greater flexibility in its license, to allow locals to pop in for a drink without having to order food.

Westminster's Labour councillors will continue to listen to local residents who are worried about the future of popular local eateries and pubs - and continue to fight to protect them.

This is factually incorrect. The planning is for basement flat refurbishments underneath the cafe. The cafe premises remain commercial. Also, the Cambridge Street Kitchen is located at 52 Cambridge Street, not Charlwood Street.
