Public consultation launched for regeneration of Wembley Park

Plans for the continued regeneration of Wembley Park will be displayed at a public exhibition from Friday (June 12)

Members of the Wembley community are invited to have their say on the early designs for the regeneration of Wembley Park.

The proposals, by property development company Quintain, included: 4,000 new homes, a new five-acre park, a new school, improved transport connections, new office and retail space, and more shopping and restaurant options.

Chief operating officer at Quintain, James Saunders, said: “Wembley Park is fast becoming one of London’s great new neighbourhoods, providing space for economic growth and helping meet London’s housing needs.

“Quintain is excited to be a vital part of this development’s progress and is passionate about helping transform the area from an event day location into a vibrant and attractive every day destination that residents can be proud of.

“We look forward to continuing our investment long into the future.”

But Wembley resident Zerine Tata has aired her concerns about the proposals: “Our biggest concern is we don't want any more 12-storey high buildings, it isn't nice to live next to to be honest.

“We also need a sufficient infrastructure, we're having masses more people living in the area and on our doorstep, so we need to make sure they - and us - are catered for.

“My greatest fear is that this could be the start of a creeping concrete jungle as smaller developers can now start building concrete blocks all over residential streets.”

The exhibition will take place over five days in the Yellow Pavilion, off Olympic Way, HA9 0FA, on:

  • Friday (June 12), 3pm-7pm
  • Saturday (June 13), 11am-4pm
  • Sunday (June 14), 11am-3pm
  • Monday (June 15), 11am-7pm
  • Tuesday (June 16), 3pm-7pm
