Green space in Brent is not under threat say the council as the deadline to comment on the borough’s Local Plan looms.
After concerns that development in the South Kilburn Public Open Space owned by Brent Council could be under threat as per the plan, the council has insisted this is not the case.

The town hall told this newspaper that the 2016 masterplan for South Kilburn "proposes reconfiguration of the park to allow for new school building" but any development would see "the amount of green space [...] retained, although the boundaries could change."
Council officers are calling upon people to have their say on the draft Local Plan - a planning policy document which will guide new development and planning applications in Brent for the next 20 years. Following two public consultations last year the deadline for this last consultation is 5pm on December 5.
Respondents will be asked to review the draft plan which contains policies on planning issues such as new housing, employment, town centres, open space, community facilities, transport and leisure facilities and provide their final comments before the draft is formally submitted to an independent planning inspector for examination.
