At the beginning of every meeting you can apply for a 3 minute soap box slot where you can raise a local topic which is important to you and other residents in the area, i.e. dumped rubbish, anti-social behaviour etc.

What do you want to do today?

One of STRA's achievements over the past three months

 

The Mayor of London has requested Brent Council to build 29,150 new homes in Brent over the next 10 years.

 

In response Brent Council prepared a major housing development plan called The Draft Local Plan. The public consultation ended on 3 January 2019.  

 

Over the Christmas period STRA prepared a detailed response of objections to the plan, which was submitted within the deadline.

 

STRA would like to thank all members who individually submitted objections.

 

STRA also raised a petition with 537 signatures objecting to the plan and we would like to thank the following members for helping us reach this outstanding achievement:

 

Jasmeet Mudhar, Barbara Dearsley, Dee Grewal, Gopal Kumbani, Amit Khare, Sunil Shah, Khalid Ikram, Michael Elliott, Kalpana Bajaria, John Haskell, Nilima Patel, Daksha Amin, Renu Kaul, Jackie Heavey and Kamli Kaul. 

 

This was achieved by members braving extremely cold weather conditions during the holiday period in December!
