The demolition of Wornington Green Estate in Ladbroke Grove is one step closer after Kensington and Chelsea Council came out in support of bringing in the bulldozers.
Kensington and Chelsea Council's Overview and Scrutiny Committee on the Public Realm have agreed to support a North Kensington scheme to rebuild the Ladbroke Grove estate.
Following the meeting, a planning document will be created, which outlines what is acceptable for the development.
Kensington Housing Trust (KHT), which runs the estate, hopes to build both private and social accommodation on the 538-home estate.
Of the 1,100 intended homes, 540 would be socially rented.
But some people remain concerned about the future.
Committee member and leader of the Labour group Cllr Judith Blakeman said the financial case for demolition and redevelopment was extremely precarious.
She added that it would be a very risky venture if the council released its assets for the redevelopment and asked how KHT would be able to address overcrowding.
Golborne ward's Cllr Emma Dent Coad, who has been campaigning against the scheme, criticised KHT, saying councillors had been 'led down the garden path to think there would be more habitable rooms, when there were not'.
Residents of the estate, including Wornington Green campaigner Keith Stirling, told the News that they remain concerned that Athlone Gardens, a public park, forms part of the site.
But KHT managing director Manpreet Dillon has defended the proposals.
He said: "We will be able to house a greater number of people in the same number of socially-rented dwellings because the new Wornington Green will provide new high-quality homes that are larger with the right number of bedrooms.
"The vast majority of residents want the regeneration to happen as quickly as possible."
Chairman of the committee Cllr Frances Taylor, added: "I am sure that if planning permission is given for the redevelopment of Wornington Green Estate, that the final development will have benefited greatly from the involvement of residents and they will find the new estate a great place to live."
