Old Oak and Park Royal - Willesden Junction Public Realm Consultation
OPDC has secured roughly £500,000 from the Mayor of London’s Good Growth Fund to deliver a series of public realm improvement projects at and around Willesden Junction Station. We have commissioned 5th Studio, architecture and urban design consultants, to design specific improvements to deliver immediate, tangible benefits for the community.
The proposed improvements aim to:
- Make the spaces around Willesden Junction station more welcoming, safe and accessible
- Enhance the station’s position as a gateway to both Old Oak and Harlesden town centre
- Reveal and celebrate local heritage to enhance local pride and identity
OPDC is working in partnership with London Borough of Brent, station operators, Arriva and the station freeholder, Network Rail to deliver this project.
Earlier this year, to capture the views of station users, we carried out surveys at Willesden Junction station. Building on the survey findings, this event is an opportunity to meet with the OPDC team, 5th Studio and project partners to understand how the project has progressed and share your feedback on the ideas and visuals we'll be sharing on the day, ahead of the next stage of design.
To bring the project to life, we’ll be holding walking tours of Willesden Junction station and the key public realm areas that could benefit. The walks will be setting off at 4.00pm and 6.00pm from All Saints Church, NW10 4UJ. If you would like to join these walks, please arrive at least ten minutes early to ensure the walks can leave on time.
As part of the consultation, we will also be making our proposals available online to review and feed in to the plans if you can’t make it on the day.
This project is part of OPDC’s ‘In the Making’ initiative, a collection of projects and activities which celebrate and nurture the unique places in Old Oak and Park Royal.
