The Harlesden Neighbourhood Plan, which was created by the Harlesden Neighbourhood Forum, will be put to a public vote on May 30, 2019. The plan sets out a vision for the area and contains planning policies and community aspirations intended to help to achieve this.
If the majority of votes are in favour of the Harlesden Neighbourhood Plan, it will be adopted by the Council and Old Oak and Park Royal Development Corporation who are the local planning authorities for the area. It will become a statutory document and will guide development within the area alongside other planning policies.
Cllr Shama Tatler, Cabinet Member for Regeneration, Highways and Planning, said: “We’re building a future for everyone and we want to work with communities to create lasting areas where people want to live and stay. So, I really hope that residents in Harlesden make their voices heard in this referendum, as if approved it will set the future vision for the area.”
