Welcome to The Hill Group’s proposals for Crescent House

Welcome to the proposals for Crescent House

Welcome to this next phase of public consultation presenting the Hill Group’s proposals to redevelop the site of the College of North West London’s (CNWL) Wembley Park campus at Crescent House, Wembley Park Drive, Wembley Park, Wembley HA9 8HP.

This site, in addition to the CNWL Dollis Hill campus, enables the development of the new, fi t-for-purpose Wembley CNWL College, linking all three sites. It also presents a unique opportunity to create an exciting mixed use place and high quality residential neighbourhood.

The CNWL has plans in place to relocate to a new, purpose-built world-class education facility on another site on Olympic Way. The redevelopment of this existing CNWL site will enable this relocation, and presents a unique opportunity to create an exciting development comprising new homes and commercial space contributing towards the Wembley Park neighbourhood.

An initial public consultation was held in October 2022 where community groups and residents attended an online-only webinar presentation of the plans as they existed at the time. In December 2022 and June 2023 we reengaged with local community groups. We received valuable feedback from these sessions and have updated our proposals to reflect this community input. We are now returning with a second round of consultation to present the updated proposals and seek your feedback.

We invite you to view the plans, pose questions to the project team, and submit a feedback form – this can be completed at today’s event, completed in your own time and returned to us via freepost, or completed online.

Following this round of consultation, we will reflect on all feedback received and how it can improve the proposals before submitting the planning application to Brent Council later this year.
