We had a busy week and week-end with so many things happening in our lovey neighbourhood.
It started on Tuesday with the Brent Connects Kilburn meeting, where the appointment of a new Brent Kilburn Town Centre Manager was announced. We have had numerous Town Centre Managers in the past with little improvement to the street realm. So we hope that this time, people who live and work in Kilburn will be listened to and improvements will be made. Please continue to use this consultation to register your comments about Kilburn as the consultation is oppened until 2019.
It was “Open studios week-end” at Kingsgate Workshops on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. The workshops were saved from demolition in 1976 and the first artists/makers moved in in 1978. A beautiful example of what community involvement can achieve. Did you go?
The big news this week is that the planning application for the demolition of the Good Ship and converting it into flats with a D1 use business on the ground floor has been refused!! Let’s hope we can retain a licensed venue in this location for locals and visitors to Kilburn to enjoy. Thanks to all who took the time to object.
