Costcutter clean-up continues

HCRA members have taken new steps to spruce up one of Harrow’s scruffiest shops by planting flowerbeds with daffodil bulbs.

Volunteers gave up their time this week to pop the bulbs in the ground as part of HCRA’s Clean Up Costcutter Campaign.

The shop on the corner of Rosslyn Crescent and Station Road has become an eyesore as a result of litter, weeds and other rubbish outside the store.

HCRA is attempting to work with the shop to tidy up the flowerbeds and lawn area.

The daffodils were donated by award-winning bulb specialist Jacques Amand.

Mayor wants more new homes in Harrow and Wealdstone

Harrow and Wealdstone would become a “new opportunity area” with a target of 2,800 new homes, under plans currently being consulted on by the Mayor of London.

The area is already classed as an “intensification area” under the Heart of Harrow plan with a target of 1,500 new homes and 2,000 new jobs.

But the Mayor of London has proposed a goal of 2,800 new homes and 3,000 new jobs prompting fears of over-development and pressure on roads and resources.

Residents have until April 10 to have their say on the plans. Find out more here.
