mission

HyPER works with all residents to create a sense of community in the Hyde Park Estate, based on the principles of respect, inclusivity and good citizenship. Membership is free and open to all residents of the Estate. We co-ordinate our activities with Westminster Council, the Paddington Neighbourhood Forum, Business Improvement Districts including local businesses and the Church Commissioners, in order to make our neighbourhood a cleaner, greener, healthier and safer place. We will work to reduce through-traffic, create more pedestrian spaces such as piazzas, and enrich the neighbourhood with family-friendly events.

STREETS AHEAD

Making our neighbourhood a greener place to live

We are working to reduce traffic in the Estate and are calling on Westminster Council to implement a Low Traffic Neighbourhood for the area in order to:

  • Create a truly green Connaught Village with biodiverse planting and sustainable drainage systems
  • Provide a place for residents to meet, sit and have access to free drinking water

  • Enable pedestrian/cycle travel to reduce emissions and improve air quality

  • Help reinforce an identity for Connaught Village Green

  • Allow the village green to extend to accommodate programmed activities

  • Improve visibility and accessibility of the Estate from Hyde Park and other surrounding areas

TALES FROM TYBURNIA

Local history from local people

If you want to hear about local history from local people, then this is the podcast for you.

Tales from Tyburnia is a community history podcast in which host, Chris Gunness, chats to people on the Hyde Park Estate about their experiences of living here.

What brought them here and how do they contribute to building a sense of community? Tune in and discover the local historian within you!

SHAPING OUR ENVIRONMENT

Creating vibrant, pedestrian spaces for all to enjoy

We want to see the Hyde Park Estate as an oasis for people to enjoy. We want places where people can relax, both in Connaught Village and in the wider Estate, both commercial areas and natural, tranquil places.

Drastically reducing the amount of through-traffic on the Estate underpins this, as does working with the Council, businesses and the Neighbourhood Forum to create these spaces.

We want to see Connaught Village as the heart of community and hosting local events and facilities such as a farmers' market.
