Labours Vision for Harrow – SKY SCRAPERS!

Labour’s Mayor of London, and the Leader of Harrow Council, are in favour of high rise tower blocks in Harrow.

The Conservatives are opposed to inappropriate, high density, poor quality development. In spite of numerous objections from local residents, and residents’ associations, the Labour Portfolio holder for Planning, with the express agreement of the Council Leader, has ignored the people of Harrow.

Planning permission has now been granted for these horrendous tower blocks, with one of them granted by the Labour Mayor of London. This unfortunate situation is only the start of a series of unwelcome sky scrapers which will irrevocably damage the character of Harrow.

Labour cannot be trusted on Planning.

Queensbury Blighted by Fly-tipping, Litter and Traffic Problems

There are currently two big issues facing residents of Queensbury. The first of these is that of flytipping and litter. This is a problem across the ward, especially in the roads around Kenton Road. Residents are either leaving litter or dumping their rubbish on roadsides, and this is simply unacceptable. Unfortunately the Labour councillors refuse to act on the issue, despite the Leader of the Council representing the ward. They are simply not responding to residents’ concerns.

Likewise, there are serious road and traffic issues facing residents. There has been an increase in traffic in the area, especially on Streatfield Road, where there are more and more accidents. This has created serious problems for residents but, once again, the Labour councillors have done nothing to act to change this for a number of years.

Visit My Mosque Day

The 5th of February 2017 was #VisitMyMosque Day. This is an annual UK event organised by the Muslim Council of Britain (MCB), now in its 3rd year. Visit my Mosque day is a fantastic opportunity for local residents to visit their local Mosque and meet with the Muslim community, to gain a better understanding of the Islamic faith and a chance to ask any questions.

I visited the Sri Lankan Muslim Cultural Centre in Whitefriars Avenue, Wealdstone where I was made to feel very welcome by all. This was my first visit to a Mosque and I came away learning so much about the Muslim faith & the history of Islam and the role the Mosque plays in the local community, including the charitable work and fundraising projects.
