Part of an estate set for potential redevelopment could be left alone following the early stages of a public consultation.

Brent Council’s cabinet will review plans for St Raphael’s Estate, in Stonebridge, after “working with residents” to create several master plans for the area.

If it passes recommendations outlined in a council report, redevelopment proposals could cover a smaller section of the estate.

It means the part known as the ‘Old Estate’ – made up of mainly two-storey homes built between 1918 and 1938 – will be removed from the master planning projects.

Carolyn Downs, chief executive of Brent Council, said: “We’re committed to making sure, alongside residents, we develop the best possible options for the future St Raph’s.

“Our recommendations to cabinet are the result of detailed work from industry experts and nearly a year of feedback from residents, and conversations with more than 50 per cent of households on the estate.

“We look forward to continuing to work together with residents, local businesses and community groups to develop the master plans for both infill and redevelopment.”

The report notes that on the ‘main’ part of the estate – what it says is referred to as ‘St Raphael’s’ – around 70 per cent of homes are council owned.

On two sections in the ‘Old Estate’, the level of council homes is at roughly 48 per cent and 14 per cent.

Last year, the council’s cabinet agreed to start working on “improvement plans” for St Raphael’s.

This would cover both infill development and redevelopment and it was agreed that residents would be balloted on the overall outcome.

“We want residents and tenants to shape what it will look like and nothing would go ahead without their agreement,” said Cllr Eleanor Southwood, responsible for housing at Brent Council.
