Queensbury, Colin Road and London Road presentations at Planning Committee on Monday October 9th

There are three noteworthy pre-applications coming up at Brent Planning Committee on Monday October 9th (6pm).

There are fuller details on the new Queensbury Pub proposals, extensive proposals for the current industrial site bordered by Colin Road, Dudden Hill Lane and High Road, Willesden and proposals for the former Wembley Youth Centre and Dennis Jackson Centre at the top of London Road Wembley.

No decisions are made at this stage but the committee can ask questions and officers in their reports will provide a commentary and suggestions on what needs to be done to make the proposals acceptable.

The meeting is open to the public.

The London Road proposal may be controversial because the three 3-6 storey buildings planned are significantly higher than the terraced houses of London Road and it is adjacent to the Ark Elvin (formerly Copland) playing fields and the wildlife corridor bordering the Wembley Book.

It provides housing for homeless people on the Brent Council housing list, assisted living accommodation as well as privare housing and space for a community centre:

Although unavailable to attend the meeting, I do hope Brent Planners see sense that having 3 & 6 storey housing is totally unacceptable in this area next to what little remaining green space. The fact that this is not accessible by public transport, and whilst homeless people deserve temporary accommodation I do not believe this site is suitable. Nor for assisted living, it is quite a distance from public transport for people with mobility issues. Close to a school has issues with safeguarding children and young people.

Far too much density of accommodation on such as small footprint
