About your civic centre

Your civic centre, including Wembley Library opened its doors in June 2013.

The building has been designed to streamline the efficient delivery of services to Brent's diverse community and accelerate the regeneration of the northern part of Wembley.

The centre's key features include a landscaped garden, exhibition and gallery space, community rooms, a state-of-the-art library and The Drum that has spaces for hire for conferences, weddings and other events.

The civic centre will contribute to council savings of £2.5m a year, as well as offering a much more integrated service to residents, all under one roof.
