Get involved in shaping your local community

3 August 2017

Residents are being invited to have their say about a new framework which will help shape how Brent is developed over the next 20 years.

The Local Plan, which is set to run until 2038, will be a result of consultation with residents, students, business owners and anybody with an interest in how the borough evolves over the next two decades.

Cllr Shama Tatler, Cabinet Member for Regeneration, Growth, Employment and Skills, explains:

“The Local Plan affects us all. It’s about homes, transport, new schools as well as a wide range of other amenity sites that could be developed in the next 20 years.

We are committed to doing all we can to make Brent a great place to live, work and enjoy and this plan is about providing the right development in the right places at the right time.

We want to provide a borough for everyone and enable and support sustainable but sympathetic development to meet the needs for accommodation of the local population.

I would encourage everyone to get involved and have their say at the borough wide workshops. This plan will affect you and your community and it is important you give us your views.

The adopted plan will provide certainty to residents, businesses, local developers and others on what the development strategy is and on future land uses within the borough.”

Workshops will be taking place across the borough in September. RSVP at www.brent.gov.uk/shapebrent.
