Love Wimbledon BID and futureMerton, Merton Council’s regeneration team are launching an ideas competition to ignite debate and generate visions for how Wimbledon town centre might develop and evolve over the next 15 years.
Following on from last year’s conference, the competition is a call to the community, designers and built environment experts to illustrate ideas, ambition and aspirations for our main town centre.
Wimbledon could play a greater part in London’s continuing economic growth over the next decade; with a predicted rise in jobs in the creative, tech and business services sectors; Wimbledon SW19 is a powerful inward investment opportunity.
The potential of Crossrail 2 is a game-changer for the town’s growth; learning from the catalytic impact Crossrail 1 has had on regeneration.
Ideas generated by the futureWimbledon competition will inform the vision and brief for a town centre masterplan to be commissioned in 2015.
