Last night (Tuesday 24 May) Harrow’s Cabinet pledged to place residents at the heart of everything the council does.
The new cabinet, led by Cllr Paul Osborn, set out their vision and the five key priorities for Harrow, these include –
- Review of regeneration priorities and plans.
- One-hour free parking.
- Fly-tipping and street cleaning, with free bulky waste collections.
- Enforcement – houses of multiple occupation, beds in sheds and planning.
- Limits on tall buildings in our suburbs
- Treat residents and business as valued customers.
Cllr Paul Osborn, leader of the council said:“Our vision and priorities tackle the issues that matter most to our residents – we will make sure the homes we build meet the needs of current and future communities, deliver the level of service residents deserve, enable residents to shop locally and sustainably by giving an hour free parking, limit tall buildings in our suburbs, and take action against those who blight our streets.
“There is a lot of work to be done over the next few months and years, but my administration is determined to make Harrow a great place to live, work and visit.”
A new Corporate Plan in the coming months will set out more of the administration’s priorities and plans to put residents first and treat them and Harrow’s businesses as valued customers.
The Cabinet also approved the redesign of the council’s logo, working with partners such as Harrow College and Westminster University to redesign the logo at no cost to Harrow residents.
