Following our earlier campaign to secure investment in our parks and green spaces, we have now sent letters strongly supporting bids for Neighbourhood Community Infrastructure Levy investment in Barham Park and Vale Farm. This is the next step in a series of efforts to enhance green spaces in Sudbury, and provide more opportunities for community activities for people of all ages.
Working with the local community and Northwick Park’s fellow Councillors, we’re supporting a bid to use Brent Council funding, levied from private developers, to provide for more community activities for Vale Farm and enhance existing green spaces.
Vale Farm is one of Sudbury’s vital green spaces and is rightly protected from development in our local Neighbourhood Plan. This bid would enhance green spaces, plant more greenery and provide for more physical activities for people of all ages.
To support this bid or to suggest ideas, please either sign the below petition or drop us a quick email on firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org. We only need your surname and postcode to log your support.
As Sudbury’s three Labour Councillors, we have been working closely with the Barham Park Trust and the Council to secure new investment in Barham Park.
As a result of this, we’re supporting a bid to use Neighbourhood Community Infrastructure Levy (NCIL) capital funding to improve the park to enable more activities to take place for local residents.
This includes investment to restore the historic park buildings, in particular the exterior, to dramatically improve the amenities available to people living around the park.

Sudbury Councillors have been helping residents on Sudbury Avenue to object to proposals for a company called WHP Telecoms to install a 5G telephone mask in some green space on the east side of Vale Farm. Given the green space and the status of Vale Farm in the Sudbury Neighbourhood Plan, the proposal is clearly unsuitable and we will do everything we can to see off this development, as the particular site proposed is clearly unsuitable.
On Saturday 3 August, a new local gardening initiative in Sudbury – set up with the full support of the ward’s three Labour Councillors – hit the ground running with its first ever project: an initiative to improve and enhance some green space in Perkin Close, Sudbury. We’ll continue to support this project as it further enhances the local area in the months ahead, with the support of Sudbury residents.
Thanks to successful campaigning from Sudbury Councillors and residents, our community recently received some welcome investment in our parks and green spaces. Beautiful planters have now been installed in Sudbury Town centre, whilst Barham Park will be at the centre of a new Brent-wide “bee corridor” to improve biodiversity and encourage more community activities.
On Monday 11 February, Sudbury Councillors wrote to residents in Gauntlett Court to correct some unfounded rumours about development in our area, and confirm the strong safeguards which are in place to protect Sudbury’s green spaces in our Neighbourhood Plan.
Sudbury Councillors have been contacted by a considerable number of residents in District and Central Road who are opposed to a proposed development in 709 Harrow Road (Ref: 19/0002). On Thursday 7 February, Cllr Thomas Stephens and Cllr Mary Daly wrote back to them to confirm our own opposition to this development.
We’ve heard a number of concerns from residents about a proposed development to build a car park at Wasps RFC Pavilion. We have written to reassure fellow residents that we also oppose this development, and that the Council is minded to reject this application.
