Residents of South Kilburn Estate in Brent have overwhelmingly backed council plans to rebuild their neighbourhood following the biggest ever resident ballot of its kind in London.

The 15-year regeneration project, which began in the early 2000s, promises to deliver 2,400 new homes of which 1,200 will be for exiting South Kilburn secure tenants.

The ballot, which was the result of an initiative from the Mayor of London which makes funding for council home building programmes dependent on approval from residents, saw 72% of residents taking part in the vote.

The final result saw 84% of eligible residents living in the blocks that are planned to be demolished voting ‘Yes’.

Cllr Shama Tatler, Brent Council’s cabinet member for regeneration, property & planning, said: ‘The community has always been at the heart of plans to improve South Kilburn, so it is only right that local people had the final say on the future of their neighbourhood.

‘Over the past 10 years we have carried out a tremendous amount of work alongside residents, listening to their views and ensuring these are prioritised. That will continue to be the case as the award-winning regeneration programme moves forward.’
