Town Teams

The famous station clock, nominated

"The New Windows on Willesden Green project aims to leave behind a strong and active partnership of residents and businesses who can continue to build on the enthusiasm generated by the project, and create a vibrant and viable town centre in Willesden of which all can be proud.

[The team was set up after the Mary Portas initiative, and is working with Brent Council to improve Walm Lane and High Road shopping area.]

"A Community Development Panel has been put in place to allow access to small grants for projects from the Community First Fund (a recent Government scheme to encourage community lead initiatives) and from which – with the support of the New Windows partners – a Town Team will develop. The Town Team will take ownership of its vision for Willesden Green and develop its own ideas around how to make Willesden a better place to live and work in.

"Town Teams are being established across the country to bring genuine local aspirations to bear on emerging local and national policies and strategies relating to community, environmental and business development issues. By encouraging strong cross-sector partnerships and developing a vision with community and political support, there is a greater opportunity to harness public and private investment and to action more sustainable change."
