Funding for food square

A pop-up test restaurant and public square are to be built in Harrow town centre as part of the regeneration of the former Cumberland Hotel site, following a £1 million cash injection from the mayor of London's Good Growth Fund and the private sector.
The eatery will be undertaken by Origin Housing and will feature an industrial kitchen providing opportunities for small or new businesses in the food sector to grow their trade.
A new public square with a play space and outdoor seating will be built on Lyon Road to host markets and events.
Deputy mayor for planning, regeneration and skills, Jules Pipe, said: "This project is a great example of how we can work with local communities on projects in a way that will help ensure the benefits are felt by all."
Keith Ferry, deputy Leader of Harrow Council and portfolio holder for business and regeneration welcomed the funding: "I say it time and again – building a better Harrow isn't just about revitalising our borough with homes for Harrow people, it's about extra public space. It’s about shops and offices – and places to eat and have fun – we're proud to be winning cash with our plans to support that."
