Last chance to have your say on Brent's Local Plan

25 November 2019

Residents, businesses, service providers, landowners, developers, workers and visitors to the borough are being called upon to have their say on Brent's draft Local Plan - a planning policy document which will guide new development and planning applications in Brent for the next 20 years - before it's too late.

Worked up following feedback from two public consultations last year, Brent Council has issued a final call for comments on its final draft Local Plan, ahead of the last consultation deadline of 5pm, December, 5.

Respondents to this latest and final consultation will be asked to review the draft Local Plan - containing policies on planning issues such as new housing, employment, town centres, open space, community facilities, transport and sports and leisure facilities - and provide their final comments before the draft is formally submitted to an independent planning inspector for examination.

A Brent Council spokesperson said: 

"This is an important consultation as the Local Plan will guide the outcome of all planning decisions for the next 20 years, physically shaping the future of Brent.

"It covers issues such as where new tall buildings and industrial buildings should go, as well as other issues such as transport, open spaces and more.

"Being such a key document for the next 20 years, it's important that as many as possible take the time now to review the draft Local Plan, see what it means for the future of the borough and to make sure you have your say before the deadline."

If approved by the inspector, it can then be adopted by the council and replace the existing Local Plan.
