Harlesden Picture Palace Meeting June 9th at 6pm - information and responses to the plans



Harlesden Neighbourhood Forum held a meeting on Tuesday 17th May at the Salvation Army. A team of designers from The Picture Palace - a former pub acquired by Brent council to create a community centre - was there to present the project. 


They were asked a lot of questions by the audience about the future purpose of the building, its refurbishment, the tendering process as well as the long-term financial sustainability of the Picture Palace. 


It became quickly apparent that there was a significant frustration among Harlesden residents present at the event. The general feeling was that the community had not been thoroughly consulted and that there was a risk the Picture Palace would not answer the needs of the local community.


That’s why Harlesden Neighbouring Forum decided on the spot to schedule an emergency meeting that will be held at the Picture Palace on June 9th. 



Harlesden Neighbourhood Forum invites you to a dedicated meeting on the Picture Palace. The meeting will be held on Thursday, 9th June 2022 at 6.00 pm.
