There are worrying signs coming from Brent Council and we fear they are about to call last orders at The Queensbury.
Brent have penciled in Wednesday 19th June as the date they will decide on the two plans before them (scheme A and scheme B which are almost identical, both derided locally).
If the council supports either scheme, the developer will withdraw the Appeal which is set for late August.
Why the pessimism?
Brent have missed three deadlines over the last 5 months to prepare for the Appeal (deadlines set out by the government). Brent do not intend to spend money on defending their previous decision to save The Queensbury until these two applications are decided upon – by themselves. In other words, passing one application will save them a heap of cash and bring in more Community Infrastructure Levy to hand out to their favourite developers.
Obviously we have complained in the strongest terms and ask you to do the same by contacting your Councillor. Details are below.
SAVE THE DATE – WEDNESDAY 19TH JUNE – FOR ANOTHER TRIP TO THE CIVIC CENTRE
