What is Visions for Northolt?

Visions for Northolt is a community-led regeneration and engagement programme that is putting local people in the driving seat of change. It is about ensuring that future investment in Northolt reflects the priorities, needs and aspirations of the local community.

Why is Visions for Northolt needed?

Northolt is a great place but we know it can be better. During initial conversations, local people said that they felt Northolt had not benefited from the investment seen in other parts of the borough. In response, we are working with the local community to ensure that investment is directed towards Northolt. It is important that local priorities are the starting point for any future investment and that there are ongoing opportunities for local people to influence, co-deliver and lead change. As set out in the Ealing Council Plan and Plan for Good Jobs, Northolt is a priority area of focus.

Who is running Visions for Northolt?

Visions for Northolt has been designed and delivered in partnership with local people.

Between January - August 2021, Ealing Council appointed engagement specialists New Practice and RESOLVE Collective to work with local people to deliver the first phase of Visions for Northolt. They worked alongside multiple community collaborators including Friends of Islip Manor Park and Building Bridges. The project branding and illustrations were created by local artist Alaa Alsaraji.

Visions for Northolt was initiated by Ealing Council’s Economic Growth Service. We are responsible for regeneration, climate action, inward investment and business growth and support. We are working with communities and businesses to rebuild our local economy as the borough recovers and renews from Covid-19. We are focused on enabling job creation and attracting investment to support thriving, sustainable and resilient neighbourhoods.

What has happened so far?

The first phase of Visions for Northolt ran from January - August 2021. Over 300 local people took part, including those who live, work, study, visit or run a business in Northolt. The aim was to develop a community-led vision for the future of Northolt. A draft of this vision and how it was created can be found here.

When will this vision be delivered? Has funding been secured?

Some exciting work is already underway to deliver this vision!

Ealing Council and Transport for London have secured over £7.2m central government funding to start delivering against this community-led vision and improve the Church / Mandeville Road and Ealing/ Kensington Road corridors. These improvements are expected to start on site later this year and be completed by Summer 2024.

We will continue to work with the local community to apply for further funding to deliver a wide range of projects, reflecting the feedback gathered to date and ongoing engagement responses.
