Bringing together multiple stakeholders, the project will draw upon our experience of creating residential-led, mixed-use masterplans to build strong and lasting communities for Harrow.”

Cllr Graham Henson, Leader of Harrow Council says, “During these difficult times it is important to have something to look forward to – our ambitious plans will give families an affordable place to call home, create jobs for local people, build a new Council HQ, and reenergise Wealdstone town centre.”
