Invitation to comment on HUB's plans for Chiltern Rail/High Road site

Following yesterdays post on the new blocks planned for the site alongside the  Chiltern railway behind Wembley High Road and the Chesterfield House development LINK I have received this email from Kaizan Partnership who are handling the Hub's public engagement:

Dear Wembley Matters

I am contacting you as part of the community engagement for a new proposed development called Wembley Link.

Very often community members feel that they are not consulted about development in their area and so we are making an extra effort to reach out to the wider community and are hoping that you will share this email and the attached flyer with your network, so they can see the emerging designs and give their feedback on them.

The Wembley Link site is a piece of land, alongside the railway line behind Wembley High St, close to the junction with Park Lane. It is next to the former Chesterfield House where HUB are currently constructing a new building. This part of Wembley is within a Housing Zone identified by the Mayor as suitable for ‘higher density’ housing. The buildings would provide about 250 new homes as well opening up the area around them which would  be a new public green space for the whole local community.

HUB are committed to working with the local community to ensure that the ‘Wembley Link’ scheme reflects local ambitions and contributes to positive development for the area. HUB have had a relationship with this area and the local community over many years through the process of designing and now building Chesterfield House and now look forward to continuing this relationship with Wembley Link.

The design team for Wembley Link have been working up plans for the 2 new buildings with public space and you can see the emerging designs here.

HUB are really keen to hear your feedback on the emerging designs – to understand what you like and don’t like so that this can be taken on board to improve the designs before they submit them to planning. The consultation will close on July 16th so please do have a look and tell us what you think.

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me.

Very best wishes
