Westway Trust is a charity committed to enhancing the 23 acres of space under the Westway flyover to benefit local people, making it a great environment to live, work, play and visit.
We exist to harness the creativity, heritage and diversity of the area to maintain and improve the places and spaces we look after. Through good stewardship and collaboration with every part of the community Westway Trust helps this vibrant part of London to continue to thrive.
We already receive more than one million visitors each year to the estate, and we want to expand the community, cultural, retail, sporting and enterprise opportunities here together with improvements to the public realm so that it is a place the community is proud and even more visitors can enjoy.
We will work to strengthen our links with the local community, to protect and enhance what already works on the estate and to improve what doesn’t. Our challenge is to understand the desires and needs of the local community and to use our resources in a way that best supports what the community is doing.
Over the next 15 years, we will deliver enterprise, retail, and community, cultural and sporting opportunities together with improvements to the public realm. By harnessing the creativity, heritage and diversity that makes the area so special, we will create distinctive and attractive places of which the community are proud and visitors can enjoy.
We will support a stronger, more resilient community underpinned by better health, economic advantage and a greener cleaner environment.
