LB Harrow plans to build over 600 new homes on disused garage sites and estates are to be transformed in a bid to deliver.
The Council plans to create around 500 new homes through estate regeneration, and produce 150 on disused vacant space.
Councillor Barry Macleod-Cullinane, deputy council leader and cabinet member for adults and housing, told the Harrow Observer: “We need to tackle this shortage because temporary housing is not ideal for anyone.”
Officers have identified a shortlist of estates ncluding Grange Farm Close, Alexandra Avenue, and Brookside Close, in South Harrow; George V Avenue, Harrow; Amy Johnson Court, Stag Lane, Edgware; 301 Pinner Road, North Harrow; Dickson Fold, Howards and Deacons Close, Hazeldene Drive and Pinner Green flats, in Pinner.
The Council hopes to be submitting planning applications in April.
