Parade of Buildings gets Make Over
Wimbledon Town Centre is currently going through some significant improvements in the conservation area at the end of Queens Road and along the Broadway. After securing contributions from freeholders, businesses and s106, Future Merton, in association with Love Wimbledon are currently leading on a regeneration project to dramatically improve the tired Victorian terraces on The Broadway.
18 – 24 The Broadway (from the pop up music venue ‘The Sound Lounge’ to local grocers ‘Retail 24’ opposite The Piazza) and was deemed in need of refurbishment because of its weathered and neglected appearance whilst having huge potential because of the intricate decorative features and character.
At the end of the project (March 2018) visitors to Wimbledon will see improvements such as rebuilt parapet walls, removed satellite dishes, cleaned and repointed brickwork with an entirely new traditional ‘Retail 24’ shopfront, which will be more ion keeping with the architecture.
Thank you to Merton Council and the businesses involved for helping make Wimbledon that bit better.
