Brent Council’s Cabinet has given the green light to work together with residents and community groups to start delivering the next phase of the ambitious Green Neighbourhoods programme.
The seal of approval for the Green Neighbourhoods action plans is the culmination of an extensive engagement programme over the summer, engaging 2000 residents.
Residents in the two pilot areas of Church End and Roundwood, and Kingsbury, asked for enhanced green infrastructure and biodiversity; sustainable travel infrastructure; and recycling and re-use projects, alongside the need to address parallel issues such as anti-social behaviour and fly tipping more holistically.
There are 34 actions in the Church End and Roundwood Action plan and 28 actions in the Kingsbury action plan. The aim is to embed environmental sustainability at the heart of day-to-day life in these locations. The plans will be phased with an overall vision to be fully delivered within two years.
