Shepheard Epstein Hunter were appointed early in 2002 to design a masterplan for the regeneration of this area at the southern end of the London Borough of Brent. One of the Government’s ‘New Deals for Communities’, this £240m development covered 2,200 properties (more than 90 percent of which were Council-owned), in an area of high unemployment, low aspiration and general decline.

Our proposals involved the reconstruction of half of the existing housing stock and the addition of over 1,000 new homes for sale to diversify tenure and help fund re-building.As part of a team of consultants, Shepheard Epstein Hunter managed a wide-ranging consultation process resulting in a series of options which allow residents and local stakeholders to choose the best solution for their neighbourhood.
