On August 2, 2004 the Harrow Times reported, "The Swaminarayan Hindu temple in Westfield Lane, Kenton, has been granted planning permission for an extra storey. The application received unanimous approval at Harrow Council's development control meeting on Wednesday last week. The additional floor will provide accommodation for a day centre for elderly members of the community. It will include a reading area, meditation areas, library, dining room, kitchen and an office. The application was praised as an 'excellent and well though out scheme' by members of all parties. Councillor Marilyn Ashton (Conservative) said: 'The temple is a wonderful landmark and an integral part of the community.'"
