Question

I would like to bring to your attention two matters of concern to Brent Council regarding the bus network in the borough:

* The first relates to Brent's new Civic Centre being built at Wembley Park and the surrounding commercial and residential development known colloquially as ''Wembley City''.

* The second concerns access to hospital services at the two main sites in the Brent, Northwick Park Hospital and Central Middlesex Hospital.

Will you arrange for Peter Hendy to meet with the Leader of Brent Council and me urgently to discuss Brent's proposals for improving the bus routes and services to these areas?

TfL are currently working with LB Brent officers and their consultants to provide data and other input to the Wembley Area Action Plan, which includes the Civic Centre and the whole Wembley City area.

As part of TfL's ongoing engagement with the NHS, they have asked to be provided with expected trip rates of people travelling to and from the health sites. This data will inform subsequent review of bus services to health services in north-west London.

Once these reviews are completed, TfL will organise a meeting with LB Brent.
