Harrow council is consulting on three housing developments near Rayners Lane, Canons Park and Stanmore tube stations. The new housing will be available for shared ownership or affordable rent and will be built on the station car parks, with a reduction in car parking spaces.
There will be more cycle parking and the intention is that people will use walking, cycling and public transport rather than drive. However, unless the surrounding roads are improved for cycling very few people will cycle. We will be responding to the consultations calling for construction of cycle tracks on surrounding main roads, low traffic neighbourhoods, better junctions and an area-wide parking strategy (to encourage lower levels of car ownership).
