A £17million Recovery Fund is one of the ways the council is helping local communities and businesses bounce back even stronger from the pandemic.

The new money from the council is focused on tackling three of the most pressing issues of our day: inequality, poverty, and the climate and ecological emergency.

Of the total package of measures, which include 33 projects in total, £6.4million is going towards vital town centre improvements. The worn pavements in Wembley High Road are getting a makeover, followed by new lighting, greenery, public art and seating areas. It promises to be in ship shape for an exciting summer of events to get more people on our high streets.

On Church Road, more trees will be planted and pavements widened to make the streets more attractive. Separately 99 new genuinely affordable homes are being build in Church End along with a new youth hub, pocket park and café for local people to enjoy.

“We are determined to build back better from the pandemic and for our town centres to become vibrant, attractive and inclusive spaces that residents can be proud of.”

Cllr Muhammed Butt,

Leader of Brent Council
