Planning Inspectorate Uphold Dandara Rejection


I was delighted to hear in August that the Planning Inspectorate had decided to uphold the Council’s rejection of Dandara’s plans for the old Post Office site in College Road. While I spoke at the Inspectorate’s hearing to oppose the height of the buildings, up to 19 storeys high, the Inspectorate has concluded the project was not good enough on design grounds. Dandara has affirmed its commitment to developing the site and no doubt soon enough, the old Post Office site will be one of the first projects in front of the new Town Centre Panel!

Navin Shah AM welcomes new planning Panel for Harrow Town Centre


In July, the new administration of Harrow Council approved a new Major Developments Panel for Harrow Town Centre. The Panel, which will be made up of councillors from both sides of the political divide, is being created to oversee the development of  a new masterplan and co-ordinate and comment on applications so that developments complement each other, rather than being considered in isolation from each other. I’ve been lobbying for such a Masterplan for a number of years and I welcome the panel as the first step in this direction. Following a question from me in September, the Mayor of London has signalled his approval of the panel.

Question number 2728/2010
Meeting date 15/09/2010

 Does the Mayor welcome the decision to produce a Masterplan for Harrow town centre, through the introduction of an  independent cross-party panel able to commission its own expertise?

 Answer by Boris Johnson
