Proposals to redevelop the former Unigate Dairy are heading for a second round of public consultation.

Imperial College London is looking to transform the site as part of its White City campus and invited the public to view its proposals earlier this year .

After saying it has taken on board public feedback, it has now updated proposals for the next phase of its plan.

The proposals are the next step for Imperial’s new campus, where academic researchers will work alongside businesses and the community with an aim of solving global challenges.

Imperial College London and White City

Those attending the engagement meetings will see how proposals for the part of the campus south of the Westway (A40), formerly the Unigate Dairy, have developed.

The project team will be on hand to answer questions and Imperial is requesting feedback before an outline planning application is submitted to Hammersmith and Fulham Council later this year.

The exhibitions will also show updated plans for the two plots on the northern part of the campus, which are not yet under construction.

The public consultation events will take place on:

  • October 6, 3pm to 8pm: White City Community Centre, India Way, White City W12 7QT
  • October 7, 10am to 3pm: St Helen’s Church, St Helen’s Gardens, North Kensington W10 6LP
  • October 10, 2pm to 7pm: The Invention Rooms, 68 Wood Lane, White City W12 7TA
  • October 12, 3pm to 8pm: Brickfields Hall, Wood Lane Studios, Shinfield Street, Shepherd’s Bush W12 0HN

Professor Neil Alford, associate provost (academic planning) at Imperial, said: “We have listened to the feedback that we received at our consultation earlier in the year and we are keen to hear what our neighbours in the area have to say about how the plans have developed.

“We’re making a long-term commitment to the community at our White City campus and we hope that everyone will take the opportunity to get involved.”

Imperial already has a significant presence in White City, with several buildings either open or under construction north of the Westway.

These include the Molecular Sciences Research Hub, the new home for Imperial’s world-leading Department of Chemistry, and the Michael Uren Biomedical Engineering Research Hub, which will house life-changing research into new and affordable medical technology.

The plans will also be available to view online from October 6 here .

Those wanting to have their say on the proposals are asked to get in touch by calling 020 7323 3544, emailing whitecityplanning@imperial.ac.uk or writing to: FREEPOST White City Campus planning.
