New boss to drive regeneration plans in London borough


The London Borough of Hammersmith and Fulham has appointed a new head of its regeneration programme as part of its plans to bolster redevelopment in the area.

Ken Glendinning, formerly deputy director of development at the London Thames Gateway Development Corporation, has been appointed to the role of head of strategic regeneration by the council as it prepares to step up its efforts to redevelop the area and deliver improved services and offices in London.

Mr Glendinning will work on a number of projects that have already begun in the area to improve the commercial property in the London borough.

The council is already working with the likes of the BBC and Marks and Spencer to develop a regeneration vision for the future of the London borough, as part of a move to revamp the White City area.

Commercial property developments in London continue to progress despite the recession, it was recently announced that Victoria station in central London would undergo a major overhaul to improve the bus and rail terminus, providing new flats and offices in the heart of the capital.
