Garden Squares

The Chelsea Society welcomes the 2015 decision of the High Court not to allow encroachment by development into communal open-space (at Courtfield Gardens).

The London Squares Preservation Act of 1931, though little used in court, is still an important safeguard which prohibits building on community-owned gardens.

Kensington and Chelsea is such a densely populated area that our remaining open spaces are precious, and even a small loss is important.  We have to preserve the places in the heart of London where it is still possible to enjoy trees and flowers, to allow children to play, to listen to birdsong, and to see the sky.
