Plans to build hundreds of new homes on three London Underground station car parks need to be “seriously thought through”, according to several councillors.
Harrow Council’s major development panel expressed concerns about the loss of commuter parking spaces if the schemes are given the green light.
Transport for London (TfL) hopes to build more than 500 new affordable homes on Rayners Lane, Stanmore and Canons Park station car parks.
Working alongside housing association Catalyst, it gave a presentation last night outlining the initial proposals for the programme.
All three developments are set to be car-free – to promote sustainable transport and improve air quality – and provide affordable housing in well-located areas.
But councillors are worried certain aspects, particularly the loss of parking spaces, will have a negative effect on Harrow.
