Cllr Geoff Barraclough, Cabinet Member for Planning & Economic Development, Westminster Council said:
visits Paddington can see it’s a special part of London. I live close by and,
for over 25 years, have walked and jogged through the area, witnessing the
transformation of a former industrial hub into the home to some of the world’s
greatest businesses. Some large, and some, like the Cheese Barge (my favourite)
small but all providing good jobs for our residents.
Westminster’s largest economic opportunity area. We are pleased to continue
working with the Paddington Partnership to developing the area even further,
including the Paddington Place Plan which supports better physical connections
with the surrounding areas. And through our North Paddington programme,
partnering with local businesses to get local young people excited about
working for some of the great companies based in Paddington."
