Plans for Chamberlayne Road

Brent Council, in partnership with Transport for London (TfL), appointed a project team to develop a concept design looking at ways of improving public realm features and accessibility for pedestrians and cyclists in the Chamberlayne Road area.

The Chamberlayne Road public realm study includes the length of Chamberlayne Road / Kilburn Lane from Whitmore Gardens to Harrow Road and including Station Terrace.   Output from the study will form the basis of a bid for future funding from TfL’s Local Implementation Plan (LIP) or Major Scheme programmes. This funding is essential for the civil engineering works associated with a proposed programme. A copy of the report and appendices is available below.

Councillor Eleanor Southwood, Queens Park Ward and Lead Member for Environment said.

“This report is an important landmark in our work to improve Chamberlayne Road. 4 local residents associations, local councillors, council officers and our consultants, Urban Flow, have developed an exciting vision for the future of the area.

The focus has been on reducing congestion, improving air quality and making Chamberlayne Road a pleasant, safe place to enjoy. The next stage is to identify potential funding sources so that we can start to make our vision into reality.
