Oakley Street Chelsea London SW3

Web-site of the Oakley Street Residents' Association

Oakley Street was opened up in the 1850s. Lined with Victorian stuccoed residential terraces, it provides a route from the famous shopping area along Kings Road, Chelsea, to the River Thames Embankment and the splendid Albert suspension Bridge (1874).

The locality is full of history; there is much more to be discovered. Many personalities of Oakley Street, famous, ordinary and strange, are here. Many curious and amusing records, and recollections related to the houses we live in are waiting to be found. Please use this web-site to discover Oakley Street and add to its past; and to communicate about present topics and future issues.

A dossier about street improvements particularly tree plantings was sent to Councillors. To read click on dossier.

At a meeting with Councillors in March 2007 the Association's representatives were unable to obtain a satisfactory response so far as tree planting is at issue.

 Residents will be able to receive e-mail messages about current matters and Neighbourhood Watch information if they wish, by notifying the address below.
