An opportunity came along with Brent Council to access funding from the Mayor of London aimed at redeveloping old buildings into spaces suitable for use by organisations and small businesses. We were successful with this funding. This is now being spent on renovating mainly the inside of The Granville, which is in much need of repair. The Granville was being used for various community and youth services for many years, but recently this reduced to two community organisations, so this funding will open up The Granville to much wider local use.
Once complete, we will have a high quality space in a fantastic, much moved old building, which we aim to ensure local people and visitors to South Kilburn make full use of the space.
We have always understood from local people that as part of the regeneration they would like to make sure there are spaces for community use, and for local organisations and businesses. Whether it’s a resident, business, a local organisation or group; without such space it means that if a resident wants a space for their business or an event, or organisations and groups want to run an activity or project, they don’t have anywhere suitable to use.
So the reason the South Kilburn Trust is so focused on making The Granville a high quality, multi-purpose building is to make sure all these things can happen - and that they can happen in the long term.
The Granville is currently undergoing refurbishment works which are due to finish in March 2018. The Granville will open at the end of March/early April 2018.
Bookings can be taken from January 2018 for use of the spaces from May 2018.
The community space can be booked Monday to Sunday.
