Spatial Planning Manager - £62,593 - £73,405 p.a. inc. 

Wembley, Wembley!

Many people are drawn by the now famous arc of Wembley - a triumph in both Architecture and in Planning. Most individuals dream of walking down the former Wembley Way (now Olympic Way) one day in their life, but imagine if you could walk down it each day with the most iconic buildings and forward thinking plans to work on!!

Well connected? 

It’s a great place to commute to; your choice from Wembley Park (Jubilee or Metropolitan lines), Wembley Central (Bakerloo or London Overground lines), Wembley Stadium Train Station (Out to Beaconsfield in 20 mins or Marylebone in 15 mins), or once completed HS2 from Old Oak direct to Euston and Birmingham! It has it all when it comes to finding the perfect location to commute in or outside London to your family.  

Regeneration, Regeneration, Regeneration!

Wembley is one of the largest regeneration projects in the country. According to the Mayor of London it can accommodate approximately 11,500 new homes and 10,000 new jobs through the development of sites along Wembley High Road and the land around Wembley Stadium.

Wembley is just one part of Brent’s jurisdiction and here are some of the most recent projects our planners have been working on:

  • Old Oak and Park Royal will become a major transport hub where High Speed 2 meets Crossrail - will see the development of 25,500 new homes and 65,000 new jobs over the next 20 – 30 years.
  • Major mixed-use regeneration scheme covering 17 hectares of land surrounding the new Wembley Stadium
  • 800 student accommodation units and a public swimming pool for the community.
  • New community centre alongside 362 new homes
  • South Kilburn regeneration – half way through a programme that will take 10 to 15 years to complete
  • Alperton regeneration - over 3,000 new homes will be built in the area including erection of 10 blocks
  • Multi-million investment to local schools and academies
