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.

Cllr Tatler, Brent Council's regeneration and planning chief, said: "The community members of the Harlesden Neighborhood Forum put a lot of hard work into creating this neighborhood plan and they now have the support of the local residents to make it a legal document."
