Our Visioning Document


Kilburn Neighbourhood Forum designation

We have formally applied to the London Boroughs of Brent and Camden to be formally re-designated as a neighbourhood forum. We (the Forum) were designated in 2016. We must now re-apply after five years in operation to continue to be formally designated for a further five years. 

The Kilburn Neighbourhood Forum will be able to continue the preparation of a neighbourhood plan in our area if both Councils approve the application. 

We are seeking views and comments on the application from residents and other interested stakeholders.

The application shows the Neighbourhood Area in our Forum has applied to use their neighbourhood planning powers. Representations should consider whether the Kilburn Neighbourhood Forum is appropriate to be re-designated.

……..clearly a major redevelopment, although it doesn’t look as if any of the residential blocks would be affected, nor the commercial frontage on Kilburn High Road.

Click on the image to submit your comments. Closes 1 Feb 2021
Opened 18 Jan 2021

Together, London Borough of Camden, London Borough of Brent and City of Westminster are proposing changes to the ‘lower’ end of Kilburn High Road. It is just the first phase in a much bigger project to transform the whole of Kilburn High Road over the next two years, to make it a safer and more welcoming town centre. 
To consult more widely, with local residents and businesses on this initial phase, covering the section of Kilburn High Road from West End Lane to Greville Place. 
The proposed changes include:
Extending bus lanes and standardising bus lane hours
–Changing a zebra crossing to a signalised pedestrian crossing
–Adding more trees
–Widening the pavement 
–Providing more informal crossing points and a central island
–Adding new cycle lanes and longer Advanced Stop Lines

Kilburn Square Development – the scheme has been amended!

A significant development impacting the Future of the High Road

Kilburn Neighbourhood Forum have been on the case since the objections and comments went in – around July.

What’s changed:

  • Retail units re-designed, glass frontage divided with stone and brickwork and an architrave to blend in with the mixed facades along the High Road – see Elevations docs and Context doc (illustrating neighbouring facades)
  • Landscape Strategy and Plan – improved public realm aims to create people’s space/square with paving and street design, planters etc
  • Café on bridge has access from High Road
  • Market – removable fencing – allowing for additional daily stalls for visiting markets, events etc
  • Change of use – mixed use to encourage arts, business and flexi-use

What’s limiting:

  • Market has not been redesigned – but can be opened up in the daytime
  • Kilburn Housing Estate proposals for redeveloping the inner square sometime in the next year not joined-up?

‘ A Statement of Community Involvement has not been completed as such. Kilburn Square is an important local landmark and considered as a Town Centre by the local population. Therefore, we would like to see happen, a wider consultation with local residents from Brent Council on this proposed planning application for Kilburn Square & Markets on Kilburn High Road.’

Kilburn Neighbourhood Plan Visioning Document

What is Kilburn Neighbourhood Plan Visioning Document?

This Visioning Document is an area-wide visioning study for Kilburn; providing the background to the forthcoming ‘Vision’ for the Kilburn Neighbourhood Plan Area. The output is therefore an area-wide and locally specific set of issues, organised against a series of themes, that could form the basis of future spatial, social and design policies in the Neighbourhood Plan. – AECOM

“We want as many people as possible to join in our activities and campaigns, to shape Kilburn’s future. Back in 2014, amenity groups, residents’ organisations and individuals in the Kilburn Wards, supported by all our Councillors, decided to set up a Forum to make full use of the provisions of the Localism Act. In 2016, Camden and Brent Councils approved our applications to be a Neighbourhood Area and Neighbourhood Forum”.
