A cash injection of £3.8 million is set to be spent on making places and spaces in Brent better in 2016/2017.

Brent Council's cabinet members are currently getting ready to allocate the pot money to fifty different projects across the borough at their meeting on February 8.

It has been recommended that the money, which comes from property developers to offset the impacts of development in the borough, is to be spent on transport safety, tree planting, landscape improvements, and outdoor gyms.

Wembley , which the council says is the borough's biggest growth area, would receive the most funding, with Kingsbury Town Centre and South Kilburn also getting money for upgrades and improvements.

The Development Funds Programme report lists the 50 projects that have been outlined as part of the spending budget.

Projects include over £210,000 to be spent on planting trees in the borough along with over £700,000 to be spent on the town centre.

Recreation in the borough, which includes outdoor and indoor gyms as well as sports pitches will receive £439,091.

Councillor Margaret McLennan, lead member for housing and development at Brent Council said: "I'm very excited about the projects that have been identified.

"We're talking about improvements to play spaces, transport networks and high streets which will be great for people, businesses and the environment.

"These projects are made possible because when we accept new homes and development in Brent, we also make sure that the impacts of those developments can be factored in and that local people are able to see the benefits of accepting new homes in their area."
