STRA's Neighbourhood Forum Policies inching way forward

Monday 19 January was an important day in STRA's calendar. London Borough of Brent's full Council unanimously approved the submission of the neighbourhood plan for examination. This was another milestone for the Neighbourhood Forum to move forward. On behalf of STRA, George Sabaratnam, Renu Kaul, Val Gordon and Faraz Barber attended this meeting.

 

Our Neighbourhood Plan had the cross-party approval and we are very grateful to all those who have encouraged and supported us through this journey.

 

A big thank you to Brent Planning team, STRA members, executive, residents and  local businesses  for their support and participation in our events and road shows.

Wembley History Society – Sudbury Then and Now

At the last STRA meeting we spoke about the Sudbury Then and Now project. Where-ever we were born, the history of the district which is now our home is something that everyone in our community can share in and enjoy. Old photographs or postcards are a popular way of seeing what places used to look like, but what are the stories behind the changes from those pictures to what we see now?

 

A good way of telling those stories is to match each old photo with a modern view of the same scene. That is what STRA, Wembley History Society and Brent Archives would like to do in 2015, working with local people and community groups to produce a “Sudbury –Then and Now” display.

Horsenden Hill Golf Course

At the last STRA meeting we had a discussion about the future of Horsenden Hill Golf course. On 25th November 2014 Ealing Council Cabinet passed a proposal for the permanent closure of Horsenden Hill Golf Course from 31st January 2015 unless alternative plans are presented to enable it to continue.

 

The alternative proposal for the land uses include;

• A Christmas tree farm

• A Christmas themed ‘Winter Wonderland’ style seasonal attraction

• 6 km of zigzag cycle tracks and high wire recreational facilities

 

If these proposals were to be implemented the knock on effects could have serious implications for local residents and the environment on Horsenden Hill
