Things to do
The regeneration of South Kilburn is a 15-year programme that is approximately half way through. It is transforming the area into a sustainable and mixed neighbourhood, aiming to create a real sense of place and belonging for residents.
The programme is rebuilding around 1,200 affordable homes for social rent for existing South Kilburn secure council tenants, substantially improving living conditions.
To provide new homes of the highest quality, and maintain the viability of the Regeneration Programme, the same number of market-rate private homes are also being built.
Without building new market-rate private homes, we would not be able to afford to rebuild 1,200 social and affordable homes for existing South Kilburn secure council tenants.
1-8 Neville House, 164 Winterleys, 113-128 Carlton House and Carlton Hall (together defined as NWCC)
The pre-planning exhibition was held in December 2018 to showcase the final designs before a planning application was submitted. A Planning Application for the site, known as NWCC, has now been submitted.
The NWCC site sits in Phase 4 of the South Kilburn Regeneration Master-plan. It will deliver approximately:
• 264 new high quality homes of which 116 will be affordable (social rent)
• New high quality and enhanced public realm
• Creation of the new Neville Road
Gloucester House and Durham Court
Building work by Telford Homes Plc began in September 2017. The works are now well underway, with new homes being completed in phases from 2020.
The redevelopment will create:
• 235 new homes, of which 102 are for affordable social rent
• Extensive landscaped areas for public use, including a secure courtyard and children’s play area.
Carlton and Granville Centres
Phase 1 saw the introduction of a new Community and Enterprise hub.
The designs for phase 2, developed in consultation with existing users and the key stakeholder group, include:
• Extra community and work space
• Improved nursery facilities
• Children’s Centre / family hub
The site will also create 23 new council homes. Subject to cabinet approval, plans will be submitted in spring 2019.
To redevelop the site in the best way possible for residents, Brent has partnered with leading regeneration developer Countryside and Home Group - one of the UK’s biggest housing associations.
The redevelopment of Peel will be re-submitted to planning in Spring 2019. It will create:
• 42 affordable homes for existing secure South Kilburn Council tenants
• 79 additional affordable homes
• 187 private sale homes
• A new health centre
• An affordable gym
• Three retail units at ground floor – anticipated for pharmacy, café and retail use
• Highways and Public Realm improvements including a new public space in front of the Health Centre which will accommodate a market
Building work will take place in phases, with some minor works already underway. Full completion of the project is expected in 2025.
Hereford House and Exeter Court
Proposals have developed from extensive consultations with Austen House residents and local residents. The planned redevelopment will create:
• 228 new homes, of which 50% are for social rent
• A new high quality local park
• An additional small amount of retail space.
We anticipate the project will be submitted to planning in Summer 2019. We will notify you when this happens.
