OUR UPDATED PROPOSALS
The revitalisation of Wembley Park is a long-term project and we are excited to show the latest plans for the next stage. We will continue to provide updates as proposals for the area move forward.
Our proposals would deliver:
■ Around 4,000 much-needed new high-quality homes for Brent;
■ Up to 1.5m sq ft of commercial space, including new offices along Wembley Park Boulevard, bringing further improvements to Wembley’s retail offering and creating many new jobs;
■ A new seven-acre park - the equivalent of nearly four Wembley football pitches;
■ A new three-form entry primary school for Wembley;
■ Improved transport connections around the site;
■ A permanent solution for Stadium parking within a total of 3,400 public car parking spaces; and
■ Continued investment in the area by Quintain.
How we have developed the designs:
Integrating the Wembley Retail Park land into the masterplan, focusing stadium car parking to the East, bringing the park down to ground for everyone to enjoy and moving the existing office consent to the West has enabled us to develop a masterplan that concentrates commercial uses to the West of the Stadium around the pedestrianised Wembley Park Boulevard. This allows a quieter residential district to come forward around a large, new green open space. Our proposals will deliver new homes for Brent and create a lively leisure destination every day in Wembley.
Scroll down to view the developed designs for each aspect of the masterplan and the benefits the proposals could deliver for Wembley Park.
A MAJOR NEW PARK FOR WEMBLEY
Seven acres of public open space for Wembley
This seven-acre park, equivalent to the size of four football pitches, will take up a large amount of the lands East of the Stadium and will become a place Wembley can be proud of. It will boast two multi-use games areas and a lake to bring an array of wildlife and plants. There will be clear routes through for pedestrians and cyclists and this will be a safe and accessible public space for all.
NEW HOMES FOR WEMBLEY
We are committed to building homes that meet the lifetime homes standard and follow the GLA’s housing design guidance. Discussions are underway with Brent Council regarding priorities around borough-wide infrastructure and affordable housing.
The masterplan proposals respond to London-wide strategic priorities for housing delivery in areas of good transportation linkages and to the scale and mass of surrounding buildings, including the Stadium. Our proposals include buildings ranging from 5 to 29 storeys where 95% of the new homes would be at or below 18-storeys. The taller buildings are arranged to maintain and frame key views to the Stadium Arch from across the borough.
A NEW SCHOOL AND NEW COMMUNITY FACILITIES FOR WEMBLEY
A NEW SCHOOL FOR WEMBLEY
We are creating a new three-form entry primary school in Wembley for 5–11 year olds. This will cater for up to 630 pupils and will be built in an early phase of the regeneration. The school will be in an ideal gateway location, as near to existing homes as well as those to those coming forward in the future. We are also proposing new nursery places for Brent.
SOCIAL INFRASTRUCTURE FOR WEMBLEY RESIDENTS
We are providing local amenities to complement those already available and to support the new community in Wembley Park. This will include two new multi-games use areas, a substantial health centre and facilities for a variety of employment opportunities. Other facilities will be identified in further discussions with Brent Council.
