Stanmore Place, Harrow

Regeneration is all about taking redundant land and transforming it into inviting places and welcoming communities. Few sites illustrate this better than Stanmore Place. Today, this is a handsome new part of Harrow with 764 mixed tenure homes, a nursery, playground and a network of tree-lined avenues and green open spaces.

But the real heart of Stanmore Place is the Residents' Association which works alongside an exceptional Estate Management Team to make this a real community where people get to know each other and work together. A year-round programme of events brings the neighbourhood to life, most of which are run by local volunteers and funded by local businesses.

This is all tied together by a Community Plan which encourages residents to organise, set priorities and take the reins. The result is a remarkably friendly and close-knit community where local people are genuinely empowered to make life better.
