Residents are horrified after nearly 600 residential dwellings at the Harrow View West development were submitted for approval last month. The development, which is scheduled to be built in Headstone, will increase congestion and pollution in the Pinner and Hatch End area. Residents surrounding the Harrow View West development, which was formerly the Kodak Zoom Leisure Centre, are seriously concerned after Persimmon Homes submitted the proposal. The new planning application is for 464 extra residential apartments, in addition to the 116 two, three and four bedroom houses already given consent. This means that the total number of dwellings will be 580. This includes several blocks of four storey flats. Residents were given 21 days to comment on the Harrow Council website as to their views. Pamela Swain, who has been coordinating the community protest against the development, said: “The general opinion is that this will be a serious over development in the area. At the council meeting in June the proposal from the developers was ridiculed as to the impractical plans. Yet still the developers have gone ahead with their original proposal. “The road congestion and subsequent air pollution will be unacceptable. Side roads will become rat runs. Surrounding gardens are already being regularly flooded with ground water having nowhere to go.
