Revitalising our high streets

High streets have been hit hard by our changing shopping habits along with the uncertainty and unpredictability surrounding COVID-19. 

With many of us now working from home and spending more time in our neighbourhoods, we want to rethink and revitalise them for generations to come. 

We want to build back better from the pandemic and for our town centres to become vibrant, attractive and inclusive spaces that you are proud of, and want to spend more time in. 

This is why our new revitalisation project includes everything from aesthetic and environmental improvements, to new youth facilities, public artwork and a whole host of projects that will provide opportunities to come together and celebrate culture.

It is about creating a borough of opportunities for everyone who lives or works here.

The first phase of this programme will start in Church Road and Wembley High Road. 

With Kilburn, Willesden Green, Neasden, Harlesden, Ealing Road, Colindale and Burnt Oak high streets to follow. 

Here is a taste of what we have planned for Church Road and Wembley High Road with more information to follow soon. 

Wembley High Road

Date Planned work
October 2021 - April 2022

Improvement works to enhance the appearance and character of the high road.

Works will include: new footway paving, lighting, seating areas and greenery (trees and plants).
