Plans to create a community hub on the Bridge Park site are now a step closer after the council’s cabinet agreed to an enhanced proposal for the Stonebridge site.
The new plan sets out to offer better leisure facilities, including a 6 lane pool, flexible business spaces, a café, accommodation and more.
The New Bridge Park Centre will have a six lane swimming pool with a moveable floor; two function halls and meeting rooms; flexible business space; up to 104 new homes; and a four court sports hall.
Cllr Krupesh Hirani, Cabinet Member for Public Health, Culture & Leisure, said: “I am pleased that these enhanced plans have been approved by cabinet and delighted that residents could soon get to enjoy a local swimming pool, better community facilities and modern flexible business spaces.
“We are a step closer to delivering a hub that caters for the needs of residents now and in the future. Brent has a growing and aging population and the new independent living homes in this proposal together with the additional housing that the neighbouring Unisys buildings will bring, once rebuilt, with help many residents.”
