Welsh Harp Joint Vision

Developing a collective vision for the Welsh Harp reservoir and surrounding public landscapes.

More info

DK-CM worked with a complex, multi-stakeholder client team to develop a spatial vision for future investment in and improvement of the Welsh Harp, a major green space and nature & wildlife amenity in north-west London. The ambition has been to generate a shared vision,  that harmoniously integrated environmental conservation, social inclusivity, and economic vitality.

The project involved extensive public engagement, including hard-to-reach demographics, and our multi-pronged approach led to meaningful public input into a complex visioning exercise. Engagement led to a ‘Welsh Harp Atlas’ capturing in full the current complexities of the landscape.

The Vision was published in 2023 and can be downloaded via the Canal & River Trust here.
