Newson’s Timber Yard


Councillors have been meeting with Residents Groups and associations about the plans for the Travis Perkins Timber Yard.

The UK’s oldest timber yard is facing closure despite campaigners urging Grosvenor Estates to re-think plans to turn it into luxury apartments. Newson’s Timber Yard, in Belgravia, has been running for 175 years but would be forced to close if the developer gets planning approval for the residential and commercial development.

The Belgravia Society amenity group has lodged an eight-page objection with Westminster City Council, and more than 90 residents, businesses and historical societies have also objected.
