The Spark Ilford
A new Cultural Quarter is coming to Ilford town centre which will combine civic, leisure, education and community uses. The area surrounding Redbridge Town Hall and Oakfield Road will be the heart of this change, boosting cultural activity both day and night.
“The Spark Ilford” has been developed to kick-start the regeneration of the Cultural Quarter bringing meanwhile projects that will transform three Council assets, initially for a five-year period whilst longer term plans are developed. Mercato Metropolitano, SPACE studios and Things Made Public as part of the Spark Ilford project, will transform the Town Hall car park, the Town Hall building and the Janice Mews building respectively.
It will be an exciting time for Ilford Town Centre in 2019, the Spark will bring intriguing events and illuminate the community spirit of Ilford, bringing people together through art, enterprise, events and food.
The Spark projects are preparing for their individual planning applications during 2018 and 2019. The planning applications will be accompanied by consultation with residents and the community.
