What is a Meanwhile project?

Alongside major regeneration programmes, we are also exploring a 'lighter, quicker, cheaper' approach under the banner of 'Meanwhile projects'.

This is to support or enable projects that can nimbly deliver improvements to local neighbourhoods not just over years but in a matter of days, weeks and months.

These are initiatives that can happen more spontaneously and are often delivered by a group of local people on the ground such as temporary uses or ways of engaging people with their neighbourhood, high street or town centre.

You can get involved with the projects by making contact through their websites or link up via social media.

As many of these projects make use of empty commercial property, we have the Meanwhile Brent Partnership to provide support and governance arrangements.
