Council wants to hear your views on the first ever Community Hub
Published: 14 May 2019
Redbridge Council is working with local residents to help shape and co-design the first ever Community Hub coming to Seven Kings.
A meeting on Thursday 30 May at Isaac Newton Academy, Ilford gives residents the opportunity to have their say on what the new Community Hub should include to support efforts to design space for council services and community uses.
The hub, which is the first of five to be built in the borough, will consolidate council and other public services into a single location and will include a range of spaces for the local community to use.
Located on the High Road, immediately adjacent to Seven Kings Rail Station, it will be easily accessible to people living in Seven Kings, Goodmayes, Chadwell Heath, Newbury Park and Mayfield and will provide a central access point to health, social, cultural and other local resources residents need in one convenient location.
Work on the Seven Kings hub is due to start in 2020 and complete in 2022 (confirmed dates are subject to programme of works).
So far the initial plans include a library and a health centre, with the rest of hub to be co-designed in partnership with local residents.
The event is free for residents of all ages around the Seven Kings area to get involved and help shape and co-produce the hub.
Two sessions at the Isaac Newton Academy will take place on Thursday 30 May 2019 at 10.30am and 6pm.
