Harlesden Place-Making Framework

Brent Council, HawkinsBrown, Jan Kattein Architects


Submission Summary: The Harlesden Framework represents an effective approach to tackling declining high streets; combining robust data analysis, historical research and mapping with in-depth local knowledge and insight to create a blueprint for investment and diversification.

Developed by a partnership of Brent Council, HawkinsBrown and Jan Kattein Architects, the Framework has been pivotal to securing funding (from council sources and external funds) to invest in the high street. It did this by clearly articulating the need, the case for investment, and the support from local people for seeing more cultural space, workspace, and community/civic space on their doorstep. The council hopes to replicate this approach in other high streets in the future.
