Harrow to show farm options

LB Harrow is to show options for redeveloping and refurbishing Pinner Park Farm.

The 230-acre site dates back to the 13th century, and houses a number of heritage buildings which have fallen into disrepair. The Farmhouse building is Grade II Listed and some of the surrounding farm buildings are curtilage listed.

The former dairy farm, in George V Avenue, is a council-owned freehold site, and is located in the green belt. The site is currently in use by a farming company and a road surfacing firm.

The council would like to make better use of the green space on the site and open more of it up to the public. They believe there is a need for more green space in this part of the borough.

The council has commissioned a report on ideas for the site which would bring the heritage buildings into viable use and increase public access to the land.

These initial ideas which include a country park and conversion of the buildings to residential use will be shown during three exhibitions at the end of June.

Caroline Bruce, Corporate Director for Environment and Enterprise at Harrow Council, said: “The council has a duty to invest in this well known site, and make sure everyone in the community is getting the best out of it.”
