Bridge Park, near Stonebridge Park Station, could get a new community hub if the revised proposals for the site are approved by Brent Council this month.
An enhanced proposal to replace the old leisure centre with a new community hub – including new leisure facilities, business space, a large community hall, accommodation for Brent’s older residents and much more for the community – will be put to the council’s cabinet on 11 February 2019.
The improved plans seek to deliver a better environment, with modern flexible community facilities, affordable work spaces, jobs and much better leisure facilities. The New Bridge Park Centre would contain a modern enterprise space to support local businesses and jobs; up to 104 new homes for vulnerable residents; a swimming pool; a ‘clip and climb’ climbing wall; a larger gym; a four court sports hall; and a café.
Cllr Krupesh Hirani, Cabinet Member for Public Health, Culture & Leisure, said: “We know that Bridge Park is much loved and we now need to build bridges and work together to create something new and really special which caters for the needs of all of the residents in the Bridge Park and the wider Stonebridge area.
“We’ve taken into account residents’ feedback and the council is now proposing to deliver much more than a replacement leisure centre. We want to deliver a modern community hub that offers much more than was originally asked for. These revised plans include double the amount of community space, more affordable work spaces and much better leisure facilities.”
