Gort Scott finalises planning for new Harrow Civic Centre

Proposals for Harrow Council's new civic centre, drawn up by a team led by Gort Scott Architects

Practice’s plans for new building on different site at heart of £1.75bn regeneration drive

Gort Scott Architects-penned proposals for a new HQ for the London Borough of Harrow have secured planning permission, the practice has announced.

Gort Scott led a team including Allies & Morrison and We Made That which won a design competition for the project in 2016. The trio beat a field of rivals that included Metropolitan Workshop, Haworth Tompkins and Mae; Henley Halebrown; and Karakusevic Carson with Tony Fretton Architects.

The approved proposals will see the development of a new 9,362 sq m building of up to six storeys with council offices, a civic centre and community space on the site of Peel House Car park in Wealdstone, around half a mile north of Harrow’s “outdated and costly” current HQ in Station Road.
