A community group from Kilburn has submitted a joint application to Brent and Camden Councils to get Neighbourhood Forum status and to set the boundary of their neighbourhood area which covers Kilburn High Road and spans both boroughs.
If the applications are agreed by the councils the forum can write a 'Neighbourhood Plan' for the area. A Neighbourhood Plan is a statutory planning document setting out planning policies for the development and use of land in a neighbourhood.
Those who are interested have from today (3 March 2016) until 15 April 2016 to read the joint application proposals and submit their comments. Brent and Camden Councils will then take a decision on whether to give the go-ahead to the proposed forum and area.
Responses by post can be sent to either: Policy and Projects team, Brent Civic Centre, Engineer's Way, Wembley HA9 0FJ or Strategic Planning and Implementation Team, Camden Council, Town Hall, Judd Street, London WC1H 8ND.
Councillor Margaret McLennan, Lead member for Housing and Development at Brent Council said: "It is good to see the local community stepping up to try and improve their local area in this way. Anyone who lives, works on or visits Kilburn High Road should certainly take a look at the proposals before we take a decision on the application."
Councillor Phil Jones, Camden Council's Cabinet Member for Regeneration, Transport and Planning said: "We are keen to support improvements to the Kilburn area and interested to know what the local community thinks about the application."
