South Kilburn residents were somewhat perpexed by the circular below inviting them to take a quick local walk and then go on to Central London as part of the Calton Vale Boulevard project.
I assume that the central London section of the walk will be looking at existing design features that will be incorporated into the Boulevard. Holding it on a weekday will mean that although children under 18 will be welcome it would involved them truanting from school! Other residents will be working.
It is worth looking at the website LINK by the Northern Ireland based designers GMDA but I have reproduced some of the information below. The RIBA Stage 2 Cost Plan has priced the scheme at £6,960,000.
The Regeneration of South Kilburn is a fifteen year programme that is approximately half way through delivering over 2,400 new high quality homes, new and improved open spaces and public realm, retail, education and health facilities.
The proposals for this project are for the revitalisation of Carlton Vale to create a vibrant Boulevard with improved transport links, lighting, street furniture and artwork. This green spine will focus on improving the health and well-being of residents and will also deliver improvements to air quality, sustainable drainage solutions and increased biodiversity. Carlton Vale Boulevard will be bound by Queens Park station in the west and the junction of Kilburn Park Road on Carlton Vale in the east.
The outline timescales for the Carlton Vale Boulevard Project are as follows:
● Design Period: November 2020 - Spring 2021
● Consultation Events & Workshops: December 2020 - Early Summer 2021
● Start on Site: Early 2022
● Completion on Site: Early 2023
Please note that these dates are indicative and subject to change
