Shaping Brent’s Future Together

Draft Local Plan Consultation

The Preferred Options Local Plan consultation ran from 8 November 2018 to 3 January 2019. This draft set out the main issues facing the borough and policies that will manage the future development of the borough until 2041 and beyond.

It built on a range of options set out in the previous draft. In addition to this, it also identified sites to be allocated for development.

The Preferred Options Local Plan and associated documents consulted upon can still be viewed by clicking the links below.

Hard copies of the draft Local Plan and Integrated Impact Assessment were available to view on request from the following libraries: Ealing Road, Harlesden, Kilburn, Kingsbury, Wembley, Willesden Green.

Consultation Events

We held eight public consultation events across the borough throughout November and December 2018. Two events were held at Brent Civic Centre, and one event each at of the following; Bridge Park Leisure Centre, Kingsbury School, Willesden Green Library, Granville Centre, Ealing Road Library and Kingsbury Temple.

In addition to this we held events with Brent Mencap, the Brent Youth Parliament and a Developers’ Forum.

What Happens Next?

The council will consider all representations made during the consultation. The main issues raised and how the council has addressed them will be set out in an updated version of the Consultation Statement.

Any changes proposed as a result of the consultation and other factors will be included in a final draft of the Local Plan, known as the Publication version.

We will invite comments on this and supporting documents for a minimum of 6 weeks before submitting all documents and comments to government, who will appoint an independent inspector to publicly examine the Plan.
