What are Guinness Partnership’s plans for building on our estate?

Last Thursday, 14 June, residents turned out to learn about Guinness Partnership’s plans for building on our estate.


Guinness Partnership did not have any plans to show us. Instead they argued they wanted to see if residents were happy to have the estate built on first before coming forward with a proposal.

However, we understand Guinness partnership have worked up extensive plans to build a seventy meter tower block and also add floors to blocks C, D, E and F.

The picture is a satellite photo of our estate. We have marked the areas we understand Guinness partnership are hoping to develop in red.

Clearly, residents have a lot of questions. We have therefore asked that Guinness return quickly for another meeting to tell us more about their plans.

We will let you know when we have more news.

Residents' Meeting To Hear About And Question The Guinness Partnership On Their Plans To Build More Flats On Our Estate

Residents of the Guinness Estate on Fulham Palace Road, Hammersmith are invited to attend a public meeting on Tuesday 14 June. The meeting will begin at 4.00pm and will be held at the the Club House.

The reason for the meeting is that the Guinness Partnership have contacted us to say they have plans to build up to 40 or 50 new flats on our estate. We want to hear what that might mean for us and question the Guinness Partnership on how that will affect us. Guinness says those flats would be for sale and for rent. Clearly we want more homes built in London but we’re not yet convinced it is right for the Guinness Partnership to try to squeeze them into our estate.

The Tenants' Association has invited our local ward Councillor Stephen Cowan to come along so he can help represent us. Stephen is also the Leader of Hammersmith and Fulham Council. We have also asked Father Gianni Notarianni to attend as his church neighbours our estate and will be affected if the Guinness Partnership builds these flats.

So, please come along and take part...

Volunteer residents set up new tenants association to ensure tenants' interests are protected

We are volunteer residents living on the Guinness Estate in Hammersmith who have set up a new tenants' association.

Welcome to our website.

We hope that we will be able to organise events such as coffee mornings for adults or play days for children.

We also believe that by working together we will be able to ensure our rights are protected and we will be able to work with the Guinness Partnership to get things done.
