Harrow Council is seeking a design team to regenerate Trinity Square in Wealdstone

The winner of the £140,000 commission will draw up detailed designs for a new public space hosting markets and events between Holy Trinity Church (pictured) and the Subway sandwich bar on Wealdstone High Street.

Planned to complete in 2018, the 3,700m² project is the result of a £1.5 million windfall the local authority received from the Greater London Authority (GLA) earlier this year.

The appointed team will also work with local retailers to set up traders group and a town centre team.

According to the contract notice: ‘The team is envisaged to be design-led with the following skills set; architecture, landscape, urban design, transport planning, civil engineering, cost consultant, graphic design, community and business engagement and event delivery.’

The scheme aims to increase footfall, help local businesses market their goods, boost community groups and rebrand Wealdstone as a place where creative businesses can grow.

The area has been identified as an opportunity area within the London Plan and is earmarked for 4,000 new homes.

Formerly a major industrial district, Wealdstone has witnessed steady decline with more than 6,000 jobs leaving the area since 1981.

Despite fast connections to central London, the High Street has also suffered with a limited retail offer and more than nine per cent of frontages currently vacant.

Other GLA-backed improvements will include a new workspace for creative businesses nearby.

The deadline for applications is 13 June.
