Brent Council’s planning committee will assess ambitions to provide more than 450 new homes and train crew facilities at Wembley Park Station car park.

It will review the plans for five new buildings – the tallest of which will be 21 storeys high – at a public meeting on Wednesday (November 4).

Council officers recommend the committee grant planning permission, subject to the provision of around 150 homes that are deemed affordable and the submission of an enhanced travel plan.

Financial contributions – to cover carbon offset, improving bus routes, and public space enhancements – are also expected, while a condition would be put in place that would prevent new residents from obtaining parking permits.

Despite these suggestions, the application has been met with 13 objections, covering concerns such as the size of the development and its impact on the surrounding area.

There were also concerns around the lack of family homes offered – around 10 per cent – and the number of affordable units, which comes in at around 33 per cent.

A second application on the agenda seeks to replace sheltered housing in Woodcock Hill, Harrow, with nine flats across a three-storey building.

More than 40 neighbouring properties, as well as the Northwick Park Residents’ Association and two ward councillors, have objected to the proposals.

They criticised the scale and design of the scheme, including the impact this will have on light and privacy of surrounding homes, and the effect on parking in the area.

However, officers have again recommended the committee give the development the green light, subject to their conditions, after deeming the application satisfactory.

The meeting will be available to view on the council’s website at 6pm.
