Northwick Park regeneration

Brent Council, London North West University Healthcare NHS Trust (Northwick Park Hospital), the University of Westminster and Network Homes are all working together to see how the land that they own in the Northwick Park area could be better used.

The four organisations have joined forces through the OPE (One Public Estate) programme - an established national programme which looks to encourage public sector organisations to use their property assets  together to create economic growth, improve public services and operate more efficiently.

In Northwick Park, the four organisations own large portions of neighbouring land and through the OPE programme, the land boundaries are dissolved as the four organisations work collaboratively to increase efficiencies and unlock potential of the area.

An initial feasibility study has shown that with the four organisations working together, the area could potentially include:

  • Shared, modern, state-of-the-art teaching spaces for the university hospital and the University of Westminster
  • Much needed new affordable homes and mixed tenure housing, including some for healthcare workers and students
  • Investment in  hospital services and facilities
  • New employment opportunities
  • Infrastructure improvements including new cycle routes, footpaths, new access roads, parking spaces and junction improvements to protect Blue Light access to the hospital
  • Reduced traffic congestion and car dependency
  • Upgrades to Northwick Park station
  • Local shopping facilities and improved sports facilities
  • A new green energy centre to serve Northwick Park Hospital and the University of Westminster as well the new homes
  • Integrating public services so they are easier for residents to use and save taxpayer's money.

There is a collective vision amongst all four organisations to make Northwick Park a landmark destination of choice, investing in our local hospital, improved infrastructure and transport connections, a common energy strategy, shared services and facilities, and reduced running costs.

Metropolitan Open Land

The green space at Northwick Park is classed as Metropolitan Open Land which means it is protected under the Mayor of London's planning guidelines and this will be taken into account when any future proposals come forward.

Have your say

We want to involve local people and key stakeholders in how this vision is shaped and developed. Our first consultation is due to launch in the coming months. Local politicians and community groups will be contacted and there will be an opportunity for residents to attend a drop-in event.

More details on this will appear here when they are confirmed.
