What are we proposed.

We  consulted on proposals to create a new ‘pocket park’ on an area of disused land in spring 2016.

The land is about 450m2 and is located at the junction between the A406 North Circular and Brentfield Road in the London Borough of Brent..

What is a pocket park?

Pocket parks are part of the Mayor’s London’s Great Outdoors - the programme to improve streets, squares, parks, and canal and riverside spaces across London. Pocket parks are small areas of inviting public space for all people to enjoy, providing relief from the hustle and bustle of the city.

Why we asked for your views?

In January 2016, we will undertake improvement works at the Brentfield Road/Drury Way junction in the London Borough of Brent. The improvements form part of our Road Modernisation Plan and are also part of our plans to improve bus reliability and bus journey times across London. We consulted on the proposals in spring 2015; further information is available here.

Part of the Brentfield Road/Drury Way scheme involves the purchase of a parcel of unused land from Neasden Temple, which is situated nearby on Brentfield Road. Following delivery of the junction scheme, we proposed to turn this land into a new pocket park and would like suggestions on what might be included. Creation of the park would be fully integrated with the forthcoming junction improvement scheme and maintenance works to be  undertaken to the cycle lane on the A406 in 2016.

How will we decide what to include?

We welcome suggestions for what could be included in the pocket park. Comments will be considered along with environmental factors, such as the drainage capacity of the land. We are limited in the number of trees which could be accommodated, but other vegetation could potentially be included in planters.

We welcome suggestions for other features and will balance comments against the need to keep the pocket park open and accessible to all.
