An MOT centre could be replaced with a six-storey building with 22 new flats.

There are plans to replace Keelers Service Centre garage, which is close to Sudbury and Harrow Road railway station, with a series of one, two and three-bed flats above office space.

Brent Council’s planning committee will assess the scheme in Harrow Road on Wednesday (November 13).

According to the council, there have been a “substantial number” of objections to the proposals, including formal objections from 45 households and two petitions.

They are concerned with the height and size of the proposed building, as well as the impact on the character of the area and the increase in traffic.

A council report also notes that, of the 22 properties, just three would be deemed affordable through shared ownership schemes.

Officers believe the design of the building is “appropriate” and said there will be no loss of privacy or light for neighbouring properties.

They also welcome the “improvements to the public realm” associated with the proposal and stated there will be “minimal impact” on the surrounding roads.

The scheme is car-free – save for one disabled space – and it has been suggested that new residents would not be eligible to apply for permit parking in the area.
