The corridor starts around Kings Cross, and finishes at Luton, but takes in parts of Brent and Harrow along the way. The plan has been produced by LB Brent and LB Harrow, together with the Boroughs of Barnet and Camden, and carries the endorsement of the Mayor's office.
It provides a summary of the scale of the opportunity for econoic growth, with around 135,000 extra residents in the four Boroughs – roughly equivalent to dropping Peterborough into the area. Much of the growth is focussed in 'major regeneration sites' around King's Cross, Brent Cross and Wembley, but Harrow Town Centre and other locations are also picked out for growth.
Of the 41,500 new homes needed in the corridor, Wembley will provide 10,000, says the report, with Harrow providing a further 4,000, and South Kilburn 1,500. It also covers Economic Development, with 10,000 jobs created in Wembley, and 13,000 in Harrow.
Realising the potential will take investment, from the private sector as well as public, and co-ordinated action between all the interested parties though, warns the report.
