Frequently asked questions
Please see below responses to some frequently asked questions. However if you have any queries that are not addressed here please do not hesitate to Contact Us.
- How many projects are being delivered by Cadogan on Sloane Gardens?
There are a number of redevelopment projects being delivered in Sloane Gardens, several which form part of the Cadogan Estate; notably the hotel conversion at 1 Sloane Gardens and two smaller residential schemes at 57 and 39/41 Sloane Gardens. We are also aware of other projects on Sloane Gardens, and are aiming to assist in coordinating the management of these projects to mitigate the impact on local residents where possible.
- When will these projects be completed?
It is anticipated that construction works for 1 Sloane Gardens will be completed in Spring 2020, 57 Sloane Gardens in August 2019 and 39/41 Sloane Gardens in October 2018. It should be noted that these dates are indicative only at this stage but we will continue to keep local residents updated.
- Why are the construction periods of the different projects overlapping?
We recognise that the construction periods for 1 Sloane Gardens and two smaller residential schemes at overlap. This has been planned to minimise the overall period of disruption for local residents.
- Was I consulted about the proposals before RBKC granted planning consent?
The Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea (RBKC) carried out a statutory consultation on all of the identified development sites prior to the submission of the planning applications. As the largest scheme on Sloane Gardens we also extensively consulted with local residents and stakeholders in advance of submitting a revised planning application for proposals at 1 Sloane Gardens. We hosted a well-publicised public exhibition in May 2016 in the site of the former sandwich shop on Holbein Place which was staffed by senior members of the project team and attended by over 50 local people over a two day period. As part of our planning submission we also prepared a Statement of Community Involvement which sets out our consultation activities in greater detail which can be downloaded here.
- How will you seek to mitigate the impacts of construction?
Throughout the construction period we are committed to do all we can to minimise noise and disruption for local residents. We have set out a number of commitments which can be viewed here. Cadogan will also ensure the development abides by the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea’s Code of Construction Practice and the Considerate Constructors Scheme whereby all contractors have committed to giving the utmost consideration to their impact on neighbours and the public.
- When are noisy works allowed to be carried out?
Construction work will take place between 8:00am– 6:00pm on weekdays, with noisy high impact work limited to four hours. No construction work is permitted during weekends or public holidays.
- When are construction vehicles allowed to visit the site?
Construction vehicles will have set times in which they can access the three sites and, away from the immediate vicinity, will take routes along main roads wherever possible. Save for limited circumstances, no construction traffic will travel to the site during weekends and public holidays.
- Will any parking bays be suspended on Sloane Gardens or Holbein Place?
Five parking bays (18-22) and the motorcycle bay on Holbein Place will be suspended until the completion of the 1 Sloane Gardens project in Spring 2020.
- What can I do if I believe that the construction works are unduly disruptive or I think there is an issue with one of the sites?
Cadogan have appointed a dedicated team to quickly respond to questions or concerns you may have at any time during the construction period. The team are in direct contact with each of the teams on site and will be contactable during office hours to deal with the majority of issues that may arise. However if there is an urgent issue that needs to be address out-of-hours, over weekends or during public holidays there are also emergency contact details provided on the Contact Us page.
- How will you communicate the construction plans regularly to local residents?
A newsletter will be delivered to all properties on Sloane Gardens every month. Alternatively, please do contact the project team and we will endeavour to provide any further information.
