Harrow Council is progressing its plans to build hundreds of new homes.
The Council has finished initial assessments of estates across the borough, as part of its Homes for Harrow initiative.
Six sites are currently being considered for either full or partial regeneration, development or major improvement of existing housing – including Grange Farm and Alexandra Avenue. The final outcome for each estate will depend on the individual site constraints and the availability of funding.
The Council has begun drawing up a detailed strategy for each of the sites. A number of consultation events have already taken place. The Council has already begun identifying sources of funding for the redevelopment plans.
Deputy leader of Harrow Council and portfolio holder for housing Cllr Barry Macleod-Cullinane said: “Good quality, affordable housing is in huge demand in the borough and our Homes for Harrow initiative is a central part of the council’s vision for meeting that demand.
“I’m delighted to announce our plans to redevelop Harrow’s estates and to build more homes for our residents. There’s still a long road ahead but we’ve already taken some important first steps in redeveloping Harrow’s most run-down estates – like Grange Farm and Howards and Deacons Close – and in building brand new homes for our residents.”
The sites currently under consideration are Alexandra Avenue, Amy Johnson Court, Brookside Close, Grange Farm estate, Hazeldene Drive and Pinner Green flats, and Howard’s and Deacon’s Close.
