Call for input on Brent's Local Plan

24 October 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.

In the final round of consultation, you have the opportunity to have a say on the final draft of the Local Plan which has been amended following feedback from two public consultations last year.

Launched today (24th October), respondents to this latest and final consultation will be asked to review the draft Local Plan – containing policies on new housing including affordable housing, employment and town centres, open space, community facilities, transport and sports and leisure facilities – and give us your views before the deadline of 5pm on 5 December 2019.

Drop-in Sessions

Open to everyone across the borough, come at any time and discuss the draft Local Plan with our planning team.No need to book – just turn up!

Cllr Shama Tatler, Brent Council's Cabinet Member for Regeneration, Property and Planning, said:

“The Local Plan will guide the outcome of all planning decisions in the borough for the next 20 years and cover issues such as where new tall buildings should go, so in that sense it will physically shape the future of Brent.

“I’d encourage as many as possible to come along to one of our consultation events and see what the Local Plan means for Brent and how the borough could develop and feel in the future, and make sure you go online and have your say.”

Consultation feedback will be reviewed and submitted with the Local Plan to an independent planning inspector for examination. If approved by the inspector, it can then be adopted by the council, and replace the existing Local Plan.
