Seven Kings residents help shape design of new community hub

Residents in Seven Kings have been working with Redbridge Council to shape plans for a new community hub. 

The ‘Seven Kings Hub Design Group’ consists of 35 local people who have been meeting online since October to discuss how the site should be run, its design, and its layout. 

The centre is now expected to include GP services and a new large library which will be used by people in Seven Kings, Newbury, Mayfield, Goodmayes, and Chadwell. 

It is one of five hubs planned for the borough as well as a new civic centre in Ilford. 

Cllr Jas Athwal wants the hub to become the heart of the local community 

A partnership model has also been proposed which would see the establishment of community leadership in the hub supported by Redbridge Council and other local partners. 

Activities in the hub would be led by a joint team of residents, community enterprises, health services, and charities in collaboration with the council. 

The proposal is set to go to Cabinet tomorrow for approval and it will then be further developed throughout the year with assistance from residents. 

Leader of Redbridge Council, Councillor Jas Athwal, said he is excited by the “potential” the centre has to support local people. 

“We want community hubs to become the heart of our local neighbourhoods, places where people can meet, study, visit their GP or just relax in a community setting,” explained Cllr Athwal. 

“We’re running in-depth co-design events so local people are involved in creating their own hubs from the very beginning: designing with the community for the community.”

Members of the ‘Seven Kings Hub Design Group’ asked for feedback on the initial proposals from their friends and neighbours. It is estimated between 600 and 700 residents have now had an input in the overall design
