Information about the regeneration of Brentford.
About Brentford Town Centre
Brentford lies at the junction of two major waterways, the River Thames and the Grand Union Canal.
Some waterside sites near to the town centre have been redeveloped for housing, however other areas still provide for traditional uses such as boatyards, moorings, small industrial and commercial uses. These all contribute to Brentford's unique waterside environment.
Brentford Station provides connections with central London, and Surrey.
Objectives set out by the Local Plan for Brentford town centre
- Regenerating Brentford town centre as a vibrant district centre celebrating the town's heritage and waterside location
- Reconnecting the High Street with the centre's wealth of historical assets which have been undervalued and neglected for many years
- Supporting new retail with a mix of leisure, entertainment and cultural uses which promote greater use of the canal side, primarily on the Brentford Waterside site to the south of Brentford High Street.
- Developing waterside industries and support facilities. This will include the development of the watercourses in the area which included river Brent and the Grand Union canal at Boston Manor Park.
