One of the largest regeneration schemes in the country will be discussed at a council meeting tonight.

The North Circular Road Regeneration Area is set to go before Brent Council's Executive at Town Hall in Forty Lane, Wembley.

Results of public consultation on the scheme will be delivered during the meeting which will also focus on plans for future.

Early results indicate support for regeneration with particular importance attached to reducing pollution levels in the area.

Executive members are recommended to approve the 'vision' document for the plans during the meeting tonight which would see huge regeneration to areas such as the St Raphael's and Brentfield Road Estates on Neasden.

Also on the agenda for tonight's meeting is the report into graffiti in Brent with results from the community consultation.

Results indicate that residents believe more patrols by PCSOs and better street lighting could cut graffiti and half of those took part would like to see more street art.

The report also requests approval from the Executive to create a new Borough Graffiti Policy which would outline the council's views on the crime.

New cemetery fees and charges in the borough which, if agreed by the Executive, would see costs increase by around 1.5 per cent as of May 1.

To attend Brent Council's Executive Meeting go to committee rooms 1 and 2 at Brent Town Hall in Forty Lane, Wembley at 7pm on Monday April 6.
