Current Plans for Church End

As part of the Covid-19 Recovery Fund, the council is also delivering almost £3 million worth of improvements in Church End to help businesses and local communities bounce back after the recent pandemic.

This includes £1.9million for pavement and road improvements (i.e. more trees being planted to make the area greener and reduce air pollution, pavements widened and lights replaced to make local streets brighter and safer).

Alongside this a further £865,000 funding is directed towards high street recovery initiatives, such as the development of the local Businesses Association, business support initiatives, shop front improvements, the area’s first annual Street Festival, community website and film documentary, shutter art, greening and a Youth Anchor provision on the high street.

An additional £300,000 of funding has also been secured via the Greater London Authority (GLA) High Streets for All Challenge Fund to support the delivery of the Youth Anchor provision, support the evolution of the Church End Partnership as well as test new and creative uses for the high street.

This was made possible thanks to a partnership formed by the Somali Advice and Forum of Information (SAAFI) and a number of other local organisations which include: African Women Centre, Brent Mencap, Fashioning our History, Free the Forgotten, St Mary’s Church, Trussell Trust and United Borders.

The partnership has been tasked with working together to create a prosperous and thriving Church End.
