Deadline looms for Harrow tall buildings consultation

Harrow Council has expressed gratitude to those who have already taken part in the consultation on tall buildings on the MyHarrow Talk platform.

The deadline for submissions is fast approaching, and those who have yet to share their views are encouraged to do so before 17 April.

The consultation aims to gather input from the people of Harrow on what they believe is suitable for their area. This feedback will be used to develop a framework that clearly demonstrates the community’s preferences to planners and developers.

The goal is to preserve the low-density Metroland character of Harrow’s suburbs, which is a commitment outlined in the Council’s Corporate Plan.

The Tall Buildings (Building Heights) Supplementary Planning Document (SPD) is a draft that outlines detailed guidance for planning applications proposing tall buildings within suburban areas of the London Borough of Harrow.

The SPD provides further guidance to policies within the Harrow Local Plan for proposals that are tall, or taller than the prevailing pattern of development in suburbia.

It’s worth noting that the SPD only applies to areas outside of the Harrow & Wealdstone Opportunity Area.

The aims of the consultation are to inform the community about the purpose and potential implications of the SPD, undertake meaningful, inclusive and transparent consultation on the draft SPD, use feedback to inform any appropriate changes to the SPD, and provide feedback to the community that their views have been heard and acted upon.
