I gather Brent, Camden and Westminster are engaged in a joint bid for money from TfL to improve Kilburn High Road. If successful, this could lead to a major investment to upgrade the centre in a similar manner to Harlesden Town Centre. Improvements to the public realm in a shooping centre can lead to increased turnover for local shops, and attention to Kilburn High Road is long overdue.
It would also have the advantage of giving a focus to the proposed neighbourhood plan for the area around the High Road. My experience in Harlesden was that once people realised that there was enough money to make big changes to the area, they were much more likely to come out to the discussions.
