Shape Brent: Local Plan Regulation 18 Preferred Options Consultation November 2018

Brent Council is producing a new Local Plan which will shape how the borough develops over the next 20 years. It will be the main document used to guide planning applications.

The Council is consulting on a Brent Local Plan Regulation 18 ‘Preferred Options’ document. The document has been prepared following consultation on an Issues and Options document earlier this year, and builds on the policy options set out previously. The Preferred Options document divides the borough into seven distinct “Places” to create specific guidance for the different areas of Brent. In addition to this the document contains preferred policy options relating to themes such as housing, employment and transport.

The consultation period is from 8th November 2018 – 3rd January 2019.  Download the Local Plan here. Find out more and complete an on-line questionnaire

A briefing session is being held specifically for developers and agents on Monday 10th December 2018 between 8.30am and 10.30am at Brent Civic Centre, Boardrooms 3 & 4. To attend please RSVP here.

The deadline for responses is 5pm, Thurs 3rd January 2019.

We would encourage you to complete the on-line questionnaire. This will make it easier for the Council to collect and analyse responses, saving time and allowing us to take forward the Plan quicker. Alternatively, you can respond by e-mail, or by post.
