Edgware housing development gets the go-ahead

June 28, 2018 by  

Harrow Council has given unanimous approval to a planned development in Edgware that is set to see 24 new houses constructed within the area.

The development got the go-ahead at a meeting held this month and will involve the building of 14 houses with four bedrooms and 10 with three bedrooms, divided across five terraces. The chosen site for the homes is at Bacon Lane, on the Kilby Industrial Estate, where a number of garages and industrial units currently stand.

The council stated that its decision was based on the fact that many of the garages are lying vacant and are in a poor condition, with the plans to replace them with homes for local families representing a good alternative use of the space.

One of the councillors, Stephen Greek, went on to state that he felt the plans would allow adequate access for vehicles – especially those used for medical emergencies – which was one of the major concerns that had been expressed.

Under the terms of the decision, the developer behind the project will be required to make a large financial contribution, including money for training schemes and jobs, before it is allowed to proceed with the work.

When new homes are built, places that provide glossy colour brochure printing are often called upon to help show them off.
