Shaping Brent’s Future Together

The council has started work on a new Local Plan which will shape how the borough is developed in the future. There are key challenges for the Plan to address including:

  • How do we ensure there is enough housing to meet everyone’s needs?
  • How do we create employment opportunities and promote economic growth?
  • What infrastructure and community facilities do we need to support new?
  • What is the future role of our town centres?
  • How do we create places that promote health and well-being?
  • How do we ensure development is sustainable, high quality and protects the environment?

Issues and Options Consultation

From August to December 2017 we undertook engagement events.  These sought to capture the views of a variety of people and organisations that have an interest in Brent’s future development. The events and a summary of responses are set out in the Brent Local Plan Consultation Summary document

We are now consulting on an ‘Issues and Options’ document.  This sets out more detail on the key challenges set out above and how we might address them.  It asks a number of questions.  The consultation period is from 8 February to 22 March 2018.  

Take the Commonplace Survey on specific places in the borough 

Take the Smart Survey on issues and options

To respond to the consultation we would prefer if you answered an on-line version of the questions.  This will make it easier for us to collect and analyse responses, saving time and allowing us to take forward the Plan quicker. Alternatively, you can respond by e-mail, or by post.
