Cars could be banned from parts of Harlesden Town Centre

Brent Council seeking views over proposals to improve notorious traffic hotspot

Partial pedestrianisation of several streets in a notorious traffic hotspot is being considered by council chiefs.

Proposed improvements to Harlesden Town Centre include the banning of cars in some streets, the widening of footways, and making it a more bicycle-friendly area.

Next week, Brent Council want residents to air their views on the proposals at a five-day exhibition where a large scale plan of how the area could look will be on display and visitors can fill out a questionnaire about the plans.

The exhibition will take place at The Salvation Army Hall in Manor Park Road, Harlesden, where council officers and members of the Harlesden Town Team will be there to discuss the options and answer questions.

The exhibition is taking place on January 23 and 25 between 4–8pm, January 28 between 10am–2pm, January 30 between 1.30–5pm and January 31 between 6–9pm.
