Brent Council’s planning committee will decide whether to approve a series of new homes when it meets on Tuesday.

It will discuss proposals for a three-house development where recently-demolished garages once stood, in Byron Road, North Wembley.

There has been some opposition to the plans, with concerns surrounding over-crowding and fears that approval would “make the area feel cramped and confined”.

But planning officers have suggested that the proposals, which will provide a terrace of three, two-storey, one-bedroom homes, be pushed through.

As well as being permissible in planning terms – according to the report – it is seen as making good use of the land.

There has also been opposition to a proposed development in Harlesden Road, at the rear of Parkfield Road.

Officers again recommend that the committee approve the plans for a two-storey block, which will house two new flats.

This comes despite perceived issues relating to parking.

At the same site, developers hope to introduce another two-storey building made up of five homes.

Again, there are concerns over parking and congestion in the area, while others have complained about the size and layout of the new building.

A 16-signature petition against the development has been handed in, while the council also received three letters of objection.
