New developments in Harrow – consultations open

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).

Please respond and add your voice:

One thought on “New developments in Harrow – consultations open

  1. I have commented on Rayners Lane Station Car Park proposal – the cycle parking provision is good but retaining parking for people who live within walking/cycling distance of the Station is incompatible with the Councils Climate Change Emergency stance. It also means actually bringing traffic into an extended School Safety zone and it leads to a poor quality environment for new residents with poor levels of amenity and play space and landscaping. I would encourage others to adopt this view…needless to say most comments are just concerned over loss of parking!
