Harrow Road Place Plan

The Harrow Road District Centre is recognised by Westminster City Council (WCC) as a priority area for change and improvement. Working alongside local residents and stakeholders, the Council have produced the Harrow Road Place Plan to describe the existing issues and priorities, establish overarching objectives for the area and give details on a range of realistic projects that will help deliver immediate and longer-term improvement.

These projects are jointly funded by Westminster City Council and the Greater London Authority's Good Growth Fund. They offer the chance to create greener and more inviting public spaces that prioritise community and civic life. 


Concept designs have been produced in response to longstanding aspirations of local community groups and networks, plus community ideas and priorities gathered in 2021-2022. Community feedback has been gathered from public events as well as from the site-specific community Working Groups who meet to feedback on the design development.
