Brent Council and Adam Khan Architects are drawing up plans for new and refurbished buildings and spaces, including community facilities and new homes on the Carlton and Granville Centres Site on Carlton Vale (opposite South Kilburn Open Space).
Phase 1 – refurbishment of the Granville building, lead by RCKa Architects, to provide an interim Enterprise Hub and community space - opened in May 2018.
This project, Phase 2, focuses on the site’s long-term future. The main aim is to secure sustainable community facilities for South Kilburn, plus training and employment opportunities for local people, by improving existing spaces, and creating excellent new ones. These include a permanent Enterprise Hub, offices for South Kilburn Trust, and accommodation for groups and services currently based on the site: the Nursery School, the Barnardo’s operated Children’s Centre, Granville Community Kitchen and the Otherwise Club.
Required to make the most efficient use of public land and to address an ongoing housing shortage, the council also wants to provide new homes on the site.

It’s vital that we work closely with local people to help ensure that the much-needed facilities we’re designing really meet the requirements of the community. In order to help achieve this, we have held a series of public consultation events for the project.
This website holds a record of the consultation events had so far - please take a look!
