New parking measures within two months

New measures to improve road safety and reduce parking problems in Rosslyn Crescent and Frognal Avenue could be introduced with two months, according to Harrow Council.

The measures, which include new double yellow lines and “no loading at any time” restrictions, were agreed after a consultation with residents.

The changes are expected to be made within the next two months subject to weather conditions and the contractor’s work schedule, says a letter from Harrow Council.

Weeds blight our street

HCRA has called on Harrow Council to tackle the giant weeds that have taken over Rosslyn Crescent and neighbouring streets.

The weeds have been growing happily for many weeks, making the road look scruffy and unloved.

Several residents have complained to the association, which has contacted Greenhill ward councillors and raised the issue direct with Harrow Council.

Meanwhile HCRA members have expressed their disappointment after flowers planted to brighten up the road were stolen by callous thieves.

“Volunteers put time and effort into planting flowers to try and make our neighbourhood a nicer place,” said deputy chair Jo Stephenson.

“It is really upsetting that someone would come along and dig them up.”


Mosque prepares for Ramadan

Harrow Mosque has written to neighbours to outline the steps it is taking to minimise disruption at the busy time of Ramadan.

The month-long Muslim festival, which starts on July 8, will see an increase in the number of worshippers attending the mosque on the corner of Station Road and Rosslyn Crescent.

The busiest times will be in the evening and the mosque management committee says it is working hard to ensure local people are not inconvenienced.

Mosque users will be encouraged to park in the Civic Centre car park rather than Rosslyn Crescent and Frognal Avenue.

Stewards and security guards will patrol streets around the mosque to ensure drivers are sticking to parking rules and that visitors keep the noise down.

The mosque has an emergency text number in case of any urgent problems such as cars blocking driveways – 07784 927045.
