Brent Council has approved plans for two developments in the Alperton and Burnt Oak & Colindale growth areas which will together deliver over 300 homes.
Members voted in line with officer recommendations and gave unanimous approval for developments which provide a combined total of 352 new homes across two different sites in Brent- 74 of which are affordable.
The applicants, R55 Ealing Road/Marvelfairs for land at 255, Ealing Road, Wembley; and Galliard Homes for Sarena House and Allied Manufacture, in Grove Park; will be required by the Council to provide over £5 million in Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) between them, which will go towards infrastructure improvements in addition to other initiatives secured by a S106 agreement.
Councillor McLennan, Lead Member for Regeneration and Housing at Brent Council said: “Our growth areas were identified because they are key to regenerating our borough.
“New development in these areas will provide much needed new homes but we are also keen to stress that any new development should be attractive, make appropriate contributions to local infrastructure improvements and include as much affordable housing as possible.”
