What is happening in Alperton?
Alperton was designated a Housing Zone by the Mayor of London in 2015 and is key Growth Area for the borough. Close to 6,000 homes are planned for the area, including a high proportion of affordable homes.
In the emerging Brent Local Plan, Alperton sits in the South West Place, alongside the wards of Sudbury and Wembley Central. The Local Plan sets out Alperton as an area for residential-led mixed use development focused along the Grand Union Canal, with the opportunity for co-location with industrial and employment sites.
Alperton’s canal-side location provides the setting for a new waterside residential neighbourhood and provide a major boost to business and employment opportunities.
