Harrow Council was awarded a £1.5 million grant from the mayor of London to support the creation of jobs, work and public spaces in Wealdstone.
The town was one of 24 areas across the capital to win funding from the £20 million London Regeneration Fund.
The council announced at the end of January 2016 that it would use the money for several projects, including the creation of a new workspace for businesses in the creative industry and a new town square near Holy Trinity Square for cultural events and markets.
“New jobs, brilliant businesses and beautiful public spaces are a huge focus of our programme to build a better Harrow,” said Keith Ferry, deputy leader and portfolio holder for business and regeneration.
He added: “This grant will help us deliver all three for future Wealdstone residents.”
