Brent Council have approved plans to transform an industrial estate into almost 3,000 new homes and a host of community amenities.
The proposals to redevelop Northfields Industrial Estate, in Alperton, were give the green light at a planning committee meeting last night (Thursday 19 July).
The 21-acre site, close to the North Circular Road, will be transformed to accommodate 2,900 new homes, of which 35 per cent will be affordable.
There will also be work and retail spaces, a community centre and health clinic, a children’s nursery and open space, and several restaurants. The ambitious project will be carried out in phases, with a completion date set for 2038.
Cllr Shama Tatler, responsible for planning and regeneration at Brent Council, said: “This scheme will breathe new life into a worn-out and redundant industrial estate and transform the area between Alperton and Stonebridge while bringing new homes, jobs, and improvements to the public realm and local transport networks.
