More than 2,000 new homes to be built in Wembley
The borough will be given £8million from the Mayor of London to fund the building of more than 2,000 new homes in Wembley.
The new 2,380 properties, 894 of them affordable, will be located along the east of Wembley High Road and towards the Stadium as part of Quinatin’s regeneration of Wembley Park.
The homes will be built in five phases.
Cllr Margaret McLennan, Brent Council’s lead member for regeneration and housing, said: “This is more good news for the regeneration of Wembley.
“Wembley is our main focus for growth and is well placed to help meet both the housing needs of our residents and the shortage of homes in the capital.”
