Answered By: 
The Mayor

Harrow and Wealdstone has been redesignated from an Intensification Area to an Opportunity Area. The area has substantial capacity to deliver both residential and employment growth.  The Harrow and Wealdstone Area Action Plan was adopted by Harrow Council in 2013 and sets out in detail how this growth will be achieved including improvements to the transport network; public realm; education; libraries; health and leisure.
