‘Positive change’ for Wembley High Road as £11m funding approved

Funding has been allocated for the development of a new publicly accessible courtyard garden and community center in Brent Council’s Wembley Housing Zone regeneration effort.

With up to £11.23m from the Strategic Community Infrastructure Levy (SCIL), as approved by the council’s Cabinet on April 8th, the project aims to address infrastructure needs stemming from new development in Brent.

In collaboration with Wates Construction, Brent Council is fulfilling its commitment to ‘revitalise’ the eastern stretch of Wembley High Road.

The proposed courtyard garden will enhance open space accessibility for both local residents and visitors, promoting community well-being and enriching quality of life. Additionally, it will provide inclusive play areas suitable for children of various ages and abilities.

The new community centre, fully equipped and operational, will serve as a hub for local residents and community groups, offering space and amenities for hosting events and activities.

Cabinet Member for Regeneration, Planning & Growth, Councillor Shama Tatler, Cabinet Member for Regeneration, Planning & Growth said:

“The economic regeneration of Wembley is clear for all to see, from the world-class Stadium to the re-developed public realm – thousands more Londoners now also call the area home, and the area is attracting more inward investment than ever before.

“This has been made possible thanks to long term planning and partnerships, leveraging resources, expertise and crucially, investment. Through the Wembley Housing Zone we have another opportunity to create another powerhouse, driving positive change along Wembley High Road.”
