Wealdstone will benefit from a £1.5million windfall, after Harrow Council won a grant for the town from the Mayor of London.
The cash from the Mayor’s Regeneration Fund will support the creation of new jobs, and work spaces for businesses and fund a new public square.
Deputy Leader and portfolio holder for business and regeneration, Councillor Keith Ferry, said: “New jobs, brilliant businesses, and beautiful public spaces are a huge focus of our programme to Build a Better Harrow. This grant will help us deliver all three for future Wealdstone residents.”
“We will keep on working together with local traders and community groups as we get ready to move the Council’s offices across the railway track.”
Wealdstone was one of 24 areas across the capital to be awarded funding from the £20million London Regeneration Fund.
The £1.5million allocated to Harrow Council will be shared across several projects in Wealdstone which include creating new work space for businesses in the creative industries, and a new town square between Holy Trinity Square and Subway.
