Women's centre to close after funding dries up

Local Democracy Reporting Service

A women’s centre is facing closure after failing to secure financial support to continue its services.

Harrow Women’s Centre, in Andrews Close, is set to close its doors tomorrow.

Catering for around 1,400 people each year, the centre has offered several support services to women in the borough since 1992.

A spokeswoman said service users were “devastated” with the news, after those running the centre announced there were no plans to carry on in the immediate future.

Some service users launched a petition to Harrow Council urging it to support it financially to enable it to continue.

The petition stated: “The centre has been beneficial to woman who are victims of domestic violence and abuse, rape, homelessness, loneliness and isolation.

“Women need a safe haven to better their lives and Harrow Women’s Centre has been that for these women who are displaced and distressed.”

Harrow Council said it was “sympathetic” to the situation at the centre but explained that money is also tight at local government level.

Caution urged over plans to axe three Harrow car parks

Local Democracy Reporting Service

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.
