PwC has said in a report that the Kodak site is unsuitable for either a waste site or a new civic centre.
The Harrow Observer reports that PwC has filed a negative report on the idea of building a new town hall or a waste processing plant on the Kodak site. The report, prepared for Harrow Council, said the former photographic factory site in Wealdstone is too far from Harrow and Wealdstone town centres, and is not well served by public transport.
The report, produced at the council’s Major Development Panel meeting this week, suggested that better use could be made of the land for other ‘broader planning objectives’ and that it is “unlikely that a major new facility, especially one that might serve several boroughs, could be justified on this site”.
The council and Land Securities, which owns the site, signed a memorandum of understanding earlier this year to work together on redeveloping the site. The two aim to bring a planning application forward “in 2011”.
