Brent Council has asked residents to have their say on how it should spend any funding used to support active travel in the borough.

It is consulting on its plans to improve the region’s environment through a series of measures aimed at promoting cycling and walking.

This is likely to include a series of road repairs, pop-up cycle lanes and the continuation of its street widening programme.

Those living in Brent can go online and ‘nominate’ areas they feel would benefit from any funding received by the council to support these projects.

Cllr Shama Tatler, responsible for regeneration, property and planning at Brent Council, said: “We’re asking people to reimagine their journeys, to find healthier and safer ways to get around.

“That’s why we want to make these improvements – to help support people to walk or cycle, by making it as safe and easy as possible.

“I encourage everyone to visit the website and tell us how they think this could work in their area.”

Last month, the council confirmed it had bid for £100,000 of funding from the Department for Transport and hoped to secure a “portion” of the £45 million made available to London councils through Transport for London’s (TfL’s) ‘Streetspace’ programme.

According to TfL’s latest tranche of payments, Brent was awarded £125,000 for work on the Harrow Road cycle route between Wembley Triangle and the North Circular Road.

Several environmental groups in the borough have pressured the council into publishing detailed plans of how much money it hopes to receive and where it could be spent.

Last month a collection of campaigners put forward a petition to Cllr Muhammed Butt, leader of Brent Council, urging him to lead a ‘Build Back Better’ strategy.

The group have put forward a series of suggestions as to how the borough’s environment could be improved to better residents’ quality of life.

These included more pop-up cycle lanes and cycle parking spaces, campaigns for ‘healthy streets’ between Wembley and Willesden Junction, and increased safety measures around schools.
