Brent has an approved list of Affordable Workspace Operators that developers must consult with to deliver affordable workspace as part of new development.
Affordable workspace must be leased or disposed to an operator after a planning application has been determined, but is most successfully delivered when considered proactively at design stage in advance of planning applications.
We strongly encourage developers to consult with operators during the early designs/pre-planning application stage. Close collaboration with the Council helps determine viable local demand and inform scheme design and planning. Also, early engagement with affordable workspace operators helps to ensure the space will be fit for purpose and attend the operator/community needs.
