Brent Council's planning committee this week resolved to grant planning permission to developer Quintain for phase two of its 8.5 million square feet redevelopment of Wembley Park in north west London. 

The second phase of the scheme includes the construction of a number of buildings near Wembley Park tube station to comprise 475 homes, of which 433 will be privately owned.

Under the previous phase 1.8m sq ft of development was completed, including a four star hotel, Brent Civic Centre and the London Designer Outlet.

“Londoners want to live in a neighbourhood with soul as well as excellent amenities," said Quintain chief executive Maxwell James in a statement. "With a century of history as a leisure destination, two iconic world-class entertainment venues, London’s only designer outlet and Bond Street within 20 minutes by Tube, this new development at Wembley Park will be unique in London and highly attractive to those seeking a great place to live,” he said.

Quintain said construction on the phase two homes is expected to start in the summer, with the first homes to be completed in 2016.
