Wembley Plans Scrapped
As reported by the Wembley and Kingsbury Times: "Plans to build a super casino and city academy school in Wembley appear dead in the water as a new administration takes charge of the borough. "A Liberal Democrat-Conservative coalition took charge of Brent at Monday night's council meeting, and promised to withdraw both applications in its policy programme for 2006 to 2010. "Council officers have been preparing to carry out a public consultation on a super casino which would cost up to £25,000. But Brent Council's new leader, Paul Lorber, wants the application made to central government withdrawn immediately, stopping the consultation from going ahead."
