"It's the revenue they're after"
No it isn't. It escapes people's notice that more residents mean more services have to be provided - more bins emptied etc but most notably, more social services for children/elderly/disabled/sick.
There are two reasons councils (including this one) build:
1) It is a requirement from central government and from London Government
2) Councils have a responsibility to provide housing for those without access to private housing. We have a very long waiting list and many people in inadequate housing eg sofa surfing or families of 5 in 1-bed flats.

All of the extra housing coming on stream across the borough last year (or the year before) provided around 1M pa gross in council tax. Set this against 150m+ pa cuts in central government grant over the last few years. And if you think Brentford is singled out for new development, take a look at central Hounslow, Isleworth, Feltham etc.
