St. Wilfrid’s Convent

The Chelsea Society understands that St Wilfrid’s Convent and Care Home in Tite Street is in the process of being sold.

This is a building of little architectural merit, which stands on a huge site. Its redevelopment will be a massive project with the potential to impact on  much of the surrounding area, including the Royal Hospital and the National Army Museum. It is currently, we understand, in mixed care and residential use.

The Chelsea Society has asked RBKC to prepare a planning brief for the site, to give developers an idea of what the local community would like to see before they bring forward their own plans. The Society is concerned about three main issues 1. The new buildings should be no higher than the other buildings in Tite Street  2. The open space should be protected and 3. The new buildings should provide in part for community uses such as care home, doctor’s or dentist’s surgery, meeting room etc.
