Aviva Investors’ Friends Garden, situated on Belmont Road, Uxbridge is now open to the public, following the completion of the recent re-landscaping of the town centre public space.

Boris Johnson MP and year 4 pupils from Hermitage Primary school in Belmont Road, opened the garden by planting Lavender, Rosemary and Helichrysum along the borders of the newly landscaped garden.

Aviva Investors gained permission from Hillingdon Council to re-landscape the garden last year. It is located beside Belmont, Aviva Investors’ 125,000 sq ft, grade A, £30 million town centre redevelopment office scheme which is scheduled for completion in December 2016.

Boris Johnson, MP for Uxbridge and South Ruislip, said “I know the garden will prove to be a fantastic addition to Uxbridge, and a welcome spot for local residents to spend time in contemplation and relaxation.”

Julian Cobourne of Aviva Investors said, “The re-development of the Belmont office scheme, beside Friends Garden, gave us the opportunity to re-landscape the space and give it a new lease of life.”

Barton Wilmore oversaw the landscape design of the space.
