Further reports on Marylebone Boys School applications for tonight's Planning Committee

A Supplementary Report LINK  has been published for tonight's meeting which provides additional information on the two applications from Marylebone Boys Free School.

Further objections have been received regarding the temporary 4 storey modular building the school wants to build in Brondesbury Park LINK :

One additional objection has been received since the publication of the committee report resulting in a total of three objections from residents and an objection from Cllr Shaw.
This most recent objection raises the following concerns:
· Impact of another school on noise, parking and the peaceful enjoyment of the area.
· The proposal does not benefit residents of Brent.
· The distance of the school from Westminster will lead to many more parents dropping their children off and picking them up by car.
· There are existing traffic problems around Mallorees and on Salusbury Road and Brondesbury Park.
·The site offers visual amenity for the local community and sanctuary for urban wildlife.
·Object to any tree being removed or harmed for a temporary development.
· A four floor building will change the character of the site and is too high and dense.
· Cheap modular construction does nothing to ameliorate the aesthetics of our built environment, nor is it environmentally sustainable
· It’s not clear what will happen to the site once the school no longer need the facility which is important as this application could set a precedent for future development.
Officers respond to these objections in the rport. They also confirm that the other application, to fence off space outside the school's current building  LINK at the former College of North West London College building in Kilburn, includes space owned by Brent Housing Partnership.  This is between the school and Ryde House. BHP confirme that haing originally objected to the proposal they have withdrawn their objection following 'negotiations with the applicant.'

The report also lists further objections by resdients'associations to the proposal for the Moberly Sports Centre in Kilburn Lane

The Planning Committee is at 7pm this evening at Brent Civic Centre.  The public may attend and there are likely to be several delegations from local residents and organisations on various agenda items. A major item will be the proposed expansion of Byron Court Primary School. LINK
