St George has unveiled plans to enhance the public spaces surrounding Grand Union, a new 22 acre canal-side neighbourhood in Alperton, Brent.
New trees, widened footpaths, new cycle lanes, additional seating, lights and planting will all help to improve the routes to Stonebridge Park Station.
The works will begin next month, starting with the Old North Circular, where 27 new trees will be planted, as well as more than 4,000 shrubs.
In early 2021 Beresford Avenue will benefit from improved pedestrian priority, with footpath widths doubled, three new pedestrian crossings and more green space and trees added.
Grand Union will see the regeneration of the 22-acre former Northfields Industrial Estate into a vibrant new mixed-use destination for Alperton. The development comprises over 3,000 mixed tenure new homes, of which over 1,000 will be affordable. A community centre, nursery and other amenities including a gym and convenience store will also feature within the development alongside a canal-side piazza with cafes, restaurants and bars. Over half the development is dedicated to public open space with 11 acres of landscaped gardens, riverside meadows and waterside pathways.
Steve Kirwan, Operations Director, St George West London, commented:
"Brent, the 2020 London Borough of Culture, is one of the boroughs in London which prioritises pedestrians, with half its streets offering wide pavements and green spaces. We are pleased to be working with Brent Council to deliver sustainable green routes to Grand Union for use by residents and the local community.
"The new routes around Grand Union will improve the journey for pedestrians and cyclists and are central to the wider commitment of enhancing the local area to ensure that Alperton is an accessible, green neighbourhood for people to live, work and visit."
