What are we doing?
We want to hear your ideas for improvements that would make North End Road a place that more people will visit. We want to:
– Create a thriving, sustainable and welcoming high street.
– Keep the market and make it better.
– Encourage more people to visit North End Road.
£1m of Council funding has already been identified, and the Council is applying for additional funding from the Mayor of London’s Liveable Neighbourhoods Fund.
What have we done so far?
We have been talking to shoppers, residents, shopkeepers, market traders, community representatives and local community groups in formal and informal ways. Two local residents were specially recruited to support this work, and you may have met them in North End Road over January and February 2019. Our activities so far have included:
— A stall at the Seasonal Traffic-Free Market in December.
— Meetings and one-to-one conversations with residents, traders, and businesses.
— Attendance at community events.
We set up an online questionnaire to hear your ideas for improvements. Over 600 of you responded to this questionnaire, and in February we exhibited the draft catalogue in North End Road for community feedback.
What happens next?
We are currently preparing a catalogue of possible future improvements, based on what we have heard and found out.
– Some of these will be small, quick improvements.
– Others will be long-term projects which need more investment.
The catalogue will help Hammersmith & Fulham Council to consult further and to come up with a plan for the next steps. We will share our progress with you at each stage. If you would like to be added to the email mailing list to find out about future events and workshops, please contact us by email or follow online.
