Recently completed housing developments in the Borough of Brent are straining the already crowded school system. To accommodate for student growth, the developers are required to contribute financially for additional school places. Empirical data was collected through door-to-door surveys to determine the number of school aged children in selected developments. Based on the analysis of the data, the group was able to determine potential child yield factors so that the Borough of Brent could substantiate the monetary contributions made by developers.
