Shoppers in Rayners Lane can park for free for 20 minutes on nearby streets after a free parking trial scheme launched in Rayners Lane.
The trial will be used to decide whether it should be rolled out across the borough. It is hoped it will encourage people to shop locally and boost local trade.
Cllr Thaya Idaikkadar, Leader of Harrow Council, said: “We want to encourage residents to shop locally and attract trade for our local businesses from beyond our borough’s borders which is why we are trialling the 20 minutes free parking.
“It will allow drivers to carry out those quick everyday tasks such as picking up a few groceries, dropping your suits off at the dry cleaners, or stopping off to post a letter or parcel somewhere.”
