Brondesbury Park is an affluent suburb and electoral ward of the London Borough of Brent, centred on Brondesbury Park railway station. The area has a number of open spaces, such as Queen's Park and Tiverton Green.

Politics[edit]

The ward returns three councillors to sit on Brent Council. In the 2006 local elections Brondesbury Park was won by the Liberal Democrats, who climbed from third place in 2002 to take all three seats. This was widely attributed to the defection of campaigner Carol Shaw, who left the Conservatives to join the Liberal Democrats shortly before the Brent East by-election in 2003.[2] The party retained the seats at the 2010 elections.[3]

Since the 2010 General Election the ward forms part of the new seat of Hampstead and Kilburn.

After the 2014 UK local elections the three elected councillor's were Conservative, Carol Shaw, Joel Davidson and John Warren.
