Major revamp for Brent Civic Centre in Wembley

Work has begun on a major renovation of Brent Civic Centre aimed at improving access and upgrading facilities to better meet the needs of the local community.

The redesign will impact several key areas of the centre including Wembley Library, the Community Hub, the Customer Services Centre, and the Registration and Nationality space.

The renovations will introduce several key improvements for residents, including a new main entrance on Exhibition Way, next to Sainsbury’s, for enhanced accessibility, a revamped ground floor with a digital hub for online services, and private meeting spaces in the Community Hub.

Wembley Library will also feature a new children’s area, flexible spaces on the mezzanine floor, and more study areas. There will also be a new flexible space in the Registration and Nationality area for post-wedding or civil partnership celebrations.

Councillor Fleur Donnelly-Jackson, Cabinet Member for Customers, Communities and Culture at Brent Council said: “Our award-winning Civic Centre has served residents and the council well over the past decade. However, a lot has changed, particularly since the pandemic and it’s important for us to adapt to meet the evolving needs of our residents.

“This exciting transformation will enable us to better serve our community, prioritising those with the most complex needs, creating a more accessible space and providing enhanced facilities for all to enjoy.”

The renovation is scheduled for completion in autumn 2024. During the renovations, all services will remain operational, with a temporary library service set up on the first floor. While library events will be relocated, all standard library services will continue to be available.
