Harrow on the Hill Underground Station is the busiest in Harrow with over 12,000 people using it on a regular weekday morning. It is also one of the least accessible in London, with the many steps posing a huge challenge to wheelchairs or pushchairs. Local activists including Gareth Thomas MP and Assembly Member, Navin Shah have been campaigning for years to improve access.
Transport for London have accepted the need to improve the station, but to fund this they have proposed a major redevelopment of the adjacent car park and the bus station, including the construction of six tower blocks of up to 25 stories.
This redevelopment appears to contain a very low number of affordable homes, does not prioritise the needs of local residents to tackle Harrow’s housing crisis and with blocks up to 25 stories high, would be completely out of character with the local area and environment.
Your Member of Parliament, Gareth Thomas, is calling on TfL to hold a full public consultation on the proposed changes to ensure we get the redevelopment of the station that Harrow needs, but financed by a sensible redevelopment plan.
Will you join Gareth Thomas MP in calling for a full public consultation of any proposed construction work around Harrow on the Hill Station?
