Save Wornington College
This petition had 415 supporters
K and C College in Wornington Road has been serving the adult educational needs of the North Kensington community for many years and has transformed the lives of a multitude of the Borough's residents (including some of it's most vulnerable members) by providing courses in ESOL, Access to Higher Education, Teacher Training, the Creative Arts and Health and Social Care.
However, all this is set to change as the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea Council have now purchased the freehold of the college building and intend to redevelop the whole site as housing, with an unseen commitment to re-provide a smaller educational space.
We believe that under the Council's Consolidated Local Plan 2015 the current D1 use of the site falls under the "social and community uses" category and is protected under policy CK1.
We believe that redeveloping the site for predominately residential uses would be contrary to policy CK1 and we are calling on the Council to ensure that the entire building remains in educational use. We ask the Council to debate these issues at a Full Council meeting.
