From a Brent Housing Action comrade
|Harlesden Neighbourhood Plan - proposed boundary area. Click link for further detail|
FYI: details of the launch are below... Neighbourhood forums look to have a growing influence over local planning issues as they are eligible to recoup sizable portions of the Community Infrastructure Levy from Local Authorities. The C.I.L. is widely regarded as a way of phasing out the old Section 106 agreements, so developers can now contribute to the local area by handing over a large sum of cash and so avoiding the requirements to include social/affordable housing in the new builds. (For more info on this and related topics from the DCLG click here: https://www.gov.uk/government/speeches/planning-update-march-2015)
Obviously this may have a pretty big effect on people in the catchment area, so please forward to any residents or interested parties and encourage them to come along!
