Question

Why is Transport for London dragging its heels to let Harrow Council implement its decision to allow parking outside the shops on Pinner Road? This area is part of Harrow Council's regeneration plans for local/district centres and the new scheme agreed by the Council would bring people back to this area to shop in local businesses and revive the local economy.

Answered By:

In autumn 2011, LB Harrow informally consulted TfL on the proposal to introduce parking bays on Pinner Road. TfL raised some concerns about the potential impact of the proposals on cyclists. To better understand these potential impacts, TfL requested a classified traffic survey.

Traffic flow information was collected at the end of December 2011 and subsequent discussions between TfL and the Borough have led to the scheme design being altered.

TfL is now awaiting a formal Traffic Management Act Notification (TMAN) submission from LB Harrow in order to approve the revised scheme.
