"Brent Council has introduced a cap on the number of betting shops, payday day loan stores, pawnbrokers and takeaways that can be opened in town centres in the borough.
"The restrictions have been rolled out as part of a new blueprint for the borough which will also protect pubs and bar new takeaways and shisha cafes from opening close to schools.
"The borough's housing crisis is also being addressed with the introduction of a new policy which insists on half of new homes on major developments being affordable.
"The 74-page blueprint called the Development Management Plan (DMP) also aims to improve resident's health and well-being, make the borough a cleaner place and tackle issues such as child obesity in Brent."
