Khan calls in Origin scheme

The Mayor of London Sadiq Khan has called in plans by Origin Housing for 186 homes in Wealdstone, which have been refused by Harrow Council.

The council turned down the plans for a 17 storey tower in Palmerston Road on the grounds of height. The scheme would have included 41% affordable housing.

The Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, said that this development has “the potential to bring real benefits as part of the wider regeneration of Wealdstone, including hundreds of genuinely affordable new homes. However, (the) proposal needs work if (it is) to realise that potential.”

The Mayor says he has asked his planning team to work with the local authority to bring forward revised proposals “that will protect the Green Belt from development and will deliver much-needed affordable housing.”

. Hearings will be held later in 2017.
