The next Brent Council Cabinet has important documents on South Kilburn. Among other things these include changes to the Carlton and Granville Centres, which have generated controversy. Some controversy on such matters is, I suppose, inevitable.
Yet I can't help but feel that the Council should be concerned at its failure to engage the public, or indeed their elected representatives. I have remarked this before. I am sure that some of the reasons for this are understandable. Putting these questions in an accessible format is not easy, and people often have other things to do than respond to Council consultations, but in a situation when even the local councillors feel somewhat removed form the process surely something is wrong somewhere?
