Ark Academy Wembley
London Borough of Brent

Planning permission was granted for a new bespoke sixth form centre (for 250 students) for the Ark Academy School in Wembley on a part-designated ‘Site of Nature Conservation Importance’. A detailed package of ecology mitigation and enhancement measures was agreed with the Council aimed also at utilising the area as an education learning resource, while pre-application discussions with the local residents association helped resolve some of the community concerns with the proposed development.
