KWG up-beat as it moves to the next phase

Keep Willesden Green met at a local community hall tonight and had a minor celebration of the welcome news of the withdrawal of the Galliford Try planning application, before quickly getting down to the business of planning the next stage of the campaign.

In recognition that Brent Council says it is in listening mode, it was decided to ask Cllr Muhammed Butt, leader of the council to meet with a group of KWG members.  We will emphasise  participation rather than just consultation and,  in the spirit of the Localism Act, explore ways of working  with the council and other groups  to realise the aspirations of the local community.

There was a very positive atmosphere at this well attended meeting and an up-beat 'can do' approach to the next phase, whatever the difficulties in the past,  which bodes well for the future.

There was a recognition that the campaign had brought the people of Willesden Green together as nothing had before and a determination to build on this new sense of community.
