There is an important meeting tomorrow (9 October) about how Brent might spend (and already has spent) monies levied from developers building in the Borough, as well as much else of local interest. The meeting is open to the public and is announced through the Brent Forum as below:
“Dear Forum Member
You’re invited to the next Brent Connects Kilburn meeting on Monday 9th October 2017 at 7pm at Queens Park Community School, Aylestone Avenue London NW6 7BQ. The agenda is attached.
The big item for this meeting is our bid to be the London Borough of Culture for 2020. As part of the London Mayor’s plans to support the arts in London, Brent will be bidding for this prestigious accolade. Come and meet staff from our Culture Service and find out more about what this exciting project could mean for the Kilburn area.
Our regeneration team will also be informing about the next round of the Community Infrastructure Levy. This is money raised from developers and helps to drive local infrastructure improvements. Find out how the money has been spent so far and how you can put in a bid.
Staying with the grants theme, there’s also our exciting new Love Where You Live grants. Small community grants up to £500 are available for residents who want to come together and make a difference in their community. It’s a simple process that can help make a big difference.
Also, come learn about trees. Gary, the council’s friendly tree expert, will be explaining how the borough’s trees are managed, why they sometimes have to be cut down and how you can go about sponsoring a local tree.
Plus there’ll be our usual soapbox slot. So if you’ve got a community issue that concerns you and your neighbours, take the time to share your views. Slots don’t need to be booked in advance, so you can just show up on the night.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org..uk if you have any questions. In the meantime I look forward to welcoming you on Monday evening, and thank you for your continued support.
Councillor James Denselow
Chair – Brent Connects Kilburn”
