A cleaner, greener Brent
Working together towards a cleaner, greener Brent
Help us to make Brent an environment to be proud of.
We have an opportunity to rethink how we keep our neighbourhoods clean and tidy, our communities safe and strong, and our roads and pavements in good working order.
There are lots of ways of doing this, but there’s only one Brent, and we want to know what our residents believe is best for their borough.
Everyone who lives and works here can get involved in the conversation – the consultation on the delivery of Local Neighbourhood Services is now live and will stay open until Monday 28 June.
We encourage you to take part in the consultation. This is your opportunity to influence how some of the most important services are delivered in Brent.
We also want to talk to a handful of people from across the borough in a bit more detail about these issues – if you’d like to get involved in one of those conversations do please fill in our expression of interest form.
As a thank you for your time, we’re offering a £20 LDO (London Designer Outlet) voucher to all who attend.
Please do have a look, share your feedback with us and encourage your friends and neighbours to take part too – your views matter, so make yourself heard.
Which services are being reviewed?
Services that have an impact on:
- How your recycling and waste is collected and processed
- How our roads and pavements are maintained
- How we work to prevent anti-social behaviour and crime
- How we improve local air quality and tackle the climate emergency
- How businesses like pubs and casinos are licensed
- How Brent’s parks and trees are maintained
- How we keep our streets free of litter and illegal rubbish dumps
- How illegal parking is enforced
Why are they being reviewed now?
Some of these services are currently being delivered by contractors. The contracts for these services will end on the 31 March 2023, and we need to make a decision on how they will be delivered from 1 April 2023.
What will the review achieve?
Our ambition is to design a model which delivers the services residents, businesses and visitors need. This means a cleaner, greener environment and more jobs for local people, as well as opportunities for local businesses. We also want to build in greater flexibility, control and innovation.
Whichever option is chosen, the council must make sure that the way services are delivered is affordable and provides the best value.
How will my voice be heard?
The comments received through the consultation will help to inform Cabinet’s decision on the final delivery model, which is expected to be taken later in the summer.
When will the new arrangements start?
Any new arrangements for the services will not come into place until 1 April 2023.
