Carlton Vale Boulevard | Community Site-visit & Walk round
On Thursday 18th November, GM Design Associates (GMDA) and Brent officers lead a group of South Kilburn residents on a community walk to look at design inspiration and relevant built schemes in London, to help inform the design of the Carlton Vale Boulevard (CVB) project.
To assist with the event, GMDA partnered with the South Kilburn Walking group, an established group led by the South Kilburn Trust (SKT), who meet regularly on Thursday mornings.
The event had great interest from the local community and 15+ South Kilburn residents attended, together with representatives of the local community, Brent Cycling Campaign, Brent Council officers and design team.
The key highlights included great examples of sustainability across London, such as TfL bus shelter with Green & Biodiverse Roof, SuDS, planting beds, and strategies to provide educational opportunities and two-way segregated cycle tracks.
The walk provided an opportunity for the design team and Brent Council to have an open an informal dialogue to discuss design elements, which could be applied to the CVB project.
