Heart of Harrow

For 100 years, the town centres of Harrow and Wealdstone have languished in the image of the ‘Metroland‘, a term coined by the Metropolitan Railway’s marketing department in 1915 when the Guide to the Extension Line became the Metroland guide. We drew up a framework able to guide and support a new kind of urban ambition; one aimed at delivering new homes in conjunction with distinctiveness and local identity. We led a multi-disciplinary team of consultants in a two stage masterplan to help guide the spatial planning and delivery of Harrow Council’s Core Strategy targets for Harrow’s Intensification Area. The work informed the Council area action plan produced to help deliver 4000 homes across Harrow and Wealdstone.
