Harrow’s Garden Tax Debated in Parliament

Many Harrow Weald residents are very unhappy with the Labour council’s £75 garden waste charge. Our petition against this has now reached over 7,000 signatures

Despite the objections Labour have gone ahead to introduce this new charge and the Council have advised all residents that their waste bins and kitchen caddies would be delivered to them by mid-October.

We are very pleased that Bob Blackman MP has raised the issue of Labour’s outrageous garden tax in Parliament. Harrow residents pay the third highest Council Tax rate in London, and Labour now want them to pay £75 on top of that for a collection that’s only going to be half as often as when it was provided “on the rates”.

Zac Goldsmith Selected as the Conservative Candidate for Mayor of London


Zac Goldsmith has been selected as the Conservative Candidate for Mayor of London for the 2016 Mayoral Elections.

Zac has been the Conservative MP for Richmond Park and North Kingston since 2010. He is well known for his environmental work and opposition to the expansion at Heathrow Airport and has gained a formidable reputation as someone who fights for the people who elected him and someone who stands up for their principles and beliefs.

There is no doubting Zac’s credentials, he will be a great champion for London and will make a brilliant Mayor.

As an Association we look forward to working with Zac and his team to ensure that he is elected as Mayor of London to continue the success story under the leadership of Boris Johnson.
