Brentford Market Place unveiled

brentford market place sep 14The new look Brentford Market Place has been unveiled as part of £2 million of improvements to Brentford Town Centre.

The £2 million funding of the project comes half and half from Hounslow Council and the Mayor of London’s Outer London Fund.

The new look market place, designed by a team working with landscape architect Lynn Kinnear, features new trees, street furniture, fountains and new and recycled York stone paving, which the council hope will create a better space for markets and events.

Cllr Steve Curran, leader of Hounslow Council, said: “This is the latest milestone in the on-going success story that is Brentford. TW8 is buzzing with opportunities for businesses, entrepreneurs and residents and the opening of the market place is symbolic of a booming Brentford.”

Mayor of London, Boris Johnson, said: “We’ve committed one million pounds into making improvements to Brentford, including the new market, that have made it so much more than a place for people to come to shop. Now, people come to trade, relax, eat and play, bringing the area to life for the whole community. This is exactly the sort of rejuvenation we want to see in our high streets as we continue to boost London’s economy and help local businesses.”
