International law firm Pinsent Masons is advising Harrow Council on its £2.5 billion regeneration and growth programme in the north-west London borough.
As part of the initiative, Harrow Council has put forward a parcel of three council-owned sites in Wealdstone and is looking to provide up to 100,000 sq ft of mixed-use development, including 1,500 new homes, a new civic centre and commercial use.
The team at Pinsent Masons is led by partner, Scot Morrison and includes procurement director, Wendy Nicolson and property senior associate Amy Walker.
Commenting on the project, Scot Morrison said: "This regeneration project will be transformational for Harrow and will serve as a blueprint for other local authorities with bold ambition to revitalise communities and tackle the housing crisis head on."
The sites have been under consideration for development for a number of years and are currently occupied by car parks, and a civic centre built in the 1960s.
Deputy leader of Harrow Council and portfolio holder for regeneration, Cllr Keith Ferry, said: "It’s time for us to get building. We’ve put in the hard yards here at the council - and now we have Cabinet approval and public support for a dynamic mix of development across some of the best sites that Harrow has to offer.
"We’re now looking for a partner with the experience, expertise and commitment to see these projects through - and to share our aspirations for what we believe Wealdstone can become."
