A new canalside piazza at Grand Union in Alperton has welcomed members of the public for the first time following the grand unveiling hosted by the developer, St George.
The piazza, overlooking a regenerated area of the canal, is home to a new Community Hub and Café, and the area opens up a previously inaccessible 800 metre stretch of the Grand Union Canal.
The Hub, operated by local charity The London Development Trust, will be at the centre of community activity to around 15,000 people, including residents living in the 3,350 new homes built by St George at Grand Union.
People will be able to hire the Hub for private functions, book places on courses, and enjoy the onsite Café with healthy food and drink options. The canal will also play host to water sport activities, such as kayaking, and projects to increase biodiversity will be sure to make a splash.
Council Leader Muhammed Butt attended the opening, along with Cllr Shama Tatler, Cabinet Member for Regeneration and Planning.
