Brent DMP in effect

A new development blueprint which aims to protect pubs and place a cap on betting shops and payday loan shops in town centres, has been formally adopted by Brent Council.

The Development Management Plan (DMP), which now in effect, also seeks to restrict new takeaways and shisha cafes from opening close to schools.

Brent is one of the first boroughs to successfully place a cap on the number of betting shops, payday loan establishments, pawnbrokers and takeaways in town centres, and to restrict new takeaways and shisha cafes from opening close to schools.

Additionally, the new development policies further strengthen the council’s strategic objective to secure 50% affordable housing on major developments.
