Brent Council has urged people to have their say on the borough’s latest Local Plan, which will shape the area for the next 20 years.

The consultation on the draft local plan ends on 5pm on December 5, after which it will be submitted to an independent planning inspector for assessment.

The council is calling on as many people as possible to comment on the document, as it will guide all planning decisions in Brent over the next two decades.

A spokesman said: “It covers issues such as where new tall buildings and industrial buildings should go, as well as other issues such as transport, open spaces and more.

“Being such a key document for the next 20 years, it’s important that as many as possible take the time now to review the draft Local Plan, see what it means for the future of the borough and to make sure you have your say before the deadline.”

The draft plan, which was put together following two previous consultations in 2018, covers policies relating to new homes, employment and town centres in Brent.

It will impact on community and leisure facilities in the borough, as well as the development of green and open spaces.

The council wants to support the delivery of an average of more than 2,000 homes a year up to 2041, with a focus on providing more family homes.

It also wants to reduce health inequalities in the borough and promote areas suitable for development.

This local plan will target “efficient” development in “growth areas” such as Northwick Park, Neasden and Staples Corner.

The council also intends to continue to support development in areas that have seen high levels of growth recently, such as Alperton, Colindale and Wembley.
