Brent consults on basement guidelines

Brent Council is to consult on new planning guidance for basement developments in reaction to an increasing number of applications for basement development in parts of the borough.

The proposed guidance would restrict the size of basement developments to ensure they are well designed and appropriate for the building.

Cllr Shama Tatler, Lead Member for Regeneration at Brent Council said: “If not managed properly, basement developments can really affect the character of an area, especially due to poor design of roof lights and railings, and loss of gardens.

“Given the overall increase in basement planning across London, we’re taking these stringent steps now, to ensure residents live in areas where well-thought out planning allows them to flourish.”
