Council Leader praises regeneration work at Prologis Park West London

Regeneration

The amount of open space gained for Hillingdon residents, included in the total development of this site, is four times great than the greenbelt land taken up by the development. This is a truly impressive example of partnership working

Cllr Roy Puddifoot, Hillingdon Borough Council

On Thursday June 28th, Cllr Ray Puddifoot MBE, leader of Hillingdon Borough Council, attended a ceremony at Prologis Park West London to mark the completion of £3 million of regeneration work by the property company within the Borough.

The work, which has taken over a year to complete, includes the rehabilitation of the canal footpath, the creation of mooring facilities and footpaths linking the canal to Horton Road, improving the water features on Ironbridge Road and rehabilitating 40 acres of derelict land within the borough to increase the amount of amenity space available for local residents.

During his visit, Cllr Puddifoot unveiled a plaque to commemorate local brick makers and the lost brick fields of West London. During the unveiling ceremony, Cllr Puddifoot said:
 
“This development is something that both Prologis and Hillingdon Council can be proud of. The amount of open space gained for Hillingdon residents, included in the total development of this site, is four times great than the greenbelt land taken up by the development. This is a truly impressive example of partnership working.”

Being part of the local community is a core part of our business philosophy

The plaque is mounted on a wall constructed using bricks made by local schools and community groups and Prologis has installed a number of information boards around the site to explain the important heritage of the area. As a further reminder of the past use of the site, the main road onto Prologis Park West London is called Clayfield Way.
 
The UK’s leading developer of industrial logistics parks is currently developing Prologis Park West London on a site which had been vacant for over 15 years and, as part of its commitment to the local area, agreed to undertake extensive rehabilitation work both on and off-site.
 
“Being part of the local community is a core part of our business philosophy” said Mark Shepherd, Vice President of Project Manager for Prologis UK. “We have been investing in the London area for almost 20 years and, in addition to providing local employment, Prologis Park West London and the land parcels we have regenerated, will offer green spaces, footpaths and cycleways which will benefit both employees of the park and local residents.”
