Building for Brent

The London Borough of Brent doesn’t hold back when it comes to placemaking. We reside in a state-of-the-art Civic Centre in Wembley, next to the iconic Wembley stadium and in one of the fastest developing areas in London. Our redevelopment of South Kilburn estate is an exemplar of how estate regeneration should be delivered. There is however so much more to be done. The social housing crisis has hit us hard and is no longer acceptable. This is why we have set a target to deliver 5000 truly affordable homes in the borough over the next 5 years, 1000 of which will be delivered directly by the Council. We have already secured the budget to fund these, backed by funding from the GLA.
