Wednesday's Brent Planning Committee to go ahead

Brent Council Democratic Services confirmed today that Wednesday's Planning Committee wil go ahead.  The meeting was in doubt after the Chair, Sarah Marquis, moved a deferral at yesterday's Planning Committee. Her motion, informed by legal advice, was based on the fact that two meetings in one week, considering major planning applications, with long term impact on Wembley would not be made by a fully informed committee given the amount of paper work involved, including much that was online, and thus would not deliver fairness and justice through due process.

Committee members were not willing to discuss the motion in public and met privately after the public left.

Democratic Services said:
I can confirm that the meeting scheduled for Wednesday 11 May 2016 will go ahead.
I am not aware that a proposal to defer tomorrow night's meeting will be tabled.
It would still be possible for the Committee to defer some of the items even if the meeting itself is not deferred.

The Reports Pack for the meeting is 248 pages long LINK

This is a summary of just one of the agenda items. LINK It includes up to 4,000 homes, an 1,800 space 10 storey car park,  hotel, more student accommodation, a three form entry primary school on the site of York House, retail and lots more. It is in Tokyngton ward (as are all the other applications tabled for Wednesday) where Muhammed Butt is one of the three Labour councillors. Apart from the car park this is Outline Permission but obviously will affect the shape of Wembkey for decades to come.

I undestand the Football Association will speak on this application. Cllr Sam Stopp is also due to address the Committee.

It appears that Muhammed Butt has his finger in every pie. What's in it for him?
