Harlesden neighbours have voted overwhelming to have influence over developments where they live.

More than 89 per cent chose to support a new neighbourhood plan in a referendum on May 30.

The Harlesden Neighbourhood plan, created by the Harlesden Neighbourhood Forum, sets out a 15-year vision for the area and contains planning policies and community aspirations to achieve it.
