Residents in Brent are invited to a public consultation on how to use the remaining land at Wembley Park as part of the next phase of new masterplan proposals for the area.
Quintain, the company leading the multi million pound regeneration of Wembley Park will display an exhibition in the Yellow Pavillion, off Olympic Way from Friday until next Tuesday.
Members of the local community can come and have their say on the early concepts for the site, which includes 4000 new homes, a five acre public park, a new three-form stage entry school, and improved transport connections.
Working with architects Flanagan Lawrence further proposals are new office and retail space to provide hundreds of new jobs, more shopping and restaurant options and the development of new designs.
Since the first outline planning permission was granted in 2004, Quintain has invested around £500 million creating a place where people want to work, visit and live.
Regeneration has to date delivered The London Designer Outlet, The Hilton London Wembley hotel, a new urban public square outside the SSE Arena (Wembley Arena), the refurbishment of the Grade II listed SSE Arena, a nine-screen cinema and much more.
James Saunders, chief operating officer at Quintain said: “Wembley Park is fast becoming one of London’s great new neighbourhoods, providing space for economic growth and helping meet London’s housing needs. Quintain is excited to be a vital part of this development’s progress and is passionate about helping transform the area from an event day location into a vibrant and attractive every day destination that residents can be proud of. We look forward to continuing our investment long into the future.”
Visitors to the exhibition will be invited to feedback on the plans that will then inform designs for the Masterplan, which will be presented at a second exhibition later in the year. Members of the project team will be on hand at the exhibition to answer questions.
Friday 12th June 3pm-7pm; Saturday 13th June 11am-4pm; Sunday 14th June 11am-3pm; Monday 15th June 11am-7pm; and Tuesday 16th June 3pm-7pm.
