A green light for a development in Harrow

New homes will soon be created in Wealdstone, Harrow in close proximity to the local station after a project previously rejected was given the green light by the Mayor of London. The Palmerston Road development will be seventeen storeys tall when it is finished, creating 186 homes, 74 of which will be affordable.

The project was previously rejected by Harrow Council after they expressed concerns over the height of the structure and the impact it would have on the area. The Mayor of London Sadiq Khan reconsidered the project alongside a similar one in Haringey and deemed that both should get the go ahead.

Both project align with the Mayor’s goal to create more affordable housing and meet demands for homes in locations with good transport links. The Palmerston Road properties will give residents easy access to the Harrow and Wealdstone station. It is served by three Overground services as well as sitting on the Bakerloo Line of the Underground. As a result it is very well connected.

The projects create a fantastic number of homes on relatively limited sites. This is a strategy that is becoming increasingly popular because space is so limited whilst demand remains high. In fact the Mayor of London is accurately encouraging increased density as long as it is done with high quality designs. In addition projects must not have a negative impact on their surroundings.

With the above in mind it is no surprise that both the Harrow and Haringey projects needed some alterations before they were given the green light. Now that planning permission has been granted though, work on the sites can begin. The new homes will be attractive to all kinds of buyers, because of their locations.
