Brent is an exciting, dynamic and vibrant place to live and work. The borough is well connected by public transport within one of the great world cities and home to Wembley stadium, one of the world’s most iconic sporting stadiums. Brent is one of the most culturally diverse boroughs in the UK. Peoplewith different cultural backgrounds make up 64% of the total population, and we continue to welcome new communities today, such as the growing Eastern European, Filipino and Somali populations. In fact, 56% of our population are born abroad.


The Kirklees Democracy Commission have been investigating what a strong local democracy should look like – for the next generation and beyond. Our ‘Growing a stronger local democracy’ report is based on a year of evidence-gathering and debate, in which over 1,000 people participated. Based on what we learned from our citizens and others, we’ve made 48 recommendations for growing a stronger local democracy in Kirklees. These include ideas for working with active citizens, making the most of digital technologies and culture, suggestions about councillors, decision-making and elections, and how to get local voices heard in regional devolution.
