Brent Cycle Strategy

The strategy aims to achieve the following vision for cycling in Brent:

  • To make Brent a borough where everyone can cycle safely, in comfort and with confidence.
  • Enable people of all ages and abilities from every section of Brent’s diverse society to see cycling as a good option for everyday travel


The strategy has been drafted based on feedback last year from residents who were asked what they thought were the most important factors to make Brent a great borough to cycle in.

Brent Council is keen to get more people cycling in the borough. The results and comments from the consultation will help Brent Council agree a final strategy that will address how it can improve cycling in the borough and make cycling an attractive and accessible option for everyone.

Read the draft strategy and fill in the consultation here:

Paper feedback forms are available from local libraries and sports centres from Wed 17 June. There are also a number of face-to-face consultation events across the borough [full list below]

The results from the consultation will be taken into consideration to agree a final Cycle Strategy to be approved by Cabinet in December 2015.

There are a number of consultation events across the borough. Residents and stakeholders are invited to come along to gain a better understanding of the Draft Strategy and ask officers questions in person:

Kingsbury Station –  Monday 15th July 4pm -7pm

Vale Farm Sports Centre – Wednesday 24th June 4pm – 7pm

Gladstone Park – Saturday 4th July 1pm – 4pm

Brent Civic Centre/Arena Square – Wednesday 8th July 11am – 3pm

#BinsofBrent is our hashtag.

For those of you who don’t know what a hashtag is, it’s basically a key-word on the Internet, more specifically on Twitter. Just let’s imagine it’s a banner, our banner for that fight.

The Ugly Tree Pits… No, that’s not a movie coming soon.

Tree Pit makeover (Pimp our pavements)
You may have noticed the sad condition of many of the tree pits in the BEST area. Many are in a dangerous condition, see picture below.
BEST is promoting the improvement of the “tree pits”.
We want to assist concerned residents to give their “local” tree pit a transformational make over.
The picture below shows what can be achieved.
Martin Harvey, a local gardener, will be on hand at the “Big Lunch” event on the 25th of May to demonstrate the ways you can turn your tree pit into a mini urban garden.
He can advise you how to prevent the pavement slabs collapsing, how to build a boarder and what to plant.
BEST intends to bulk purchase soil and wooden edging to kick start the greening or our streets*.
