Harrow named regeneration hotspot
Tue 7 July 2015, 3:47 pm
Residential specialist Savills has identified Harrow as one of 15 short-term regeneration hotspots in London.
The borough has more than 1,000 private units in the pipeline to be built between 2015 and 2019. After 2020, the number of private units is also expected to top 1,000.
Other areas identified include: Hounslow, Ealing, Southall, Brent Cross to Hendon, Ilford, Barking town centre, the Lower Lea Valley, East London Riverside, Thamesmead and Abbey Wood, Surrey Quays Surrey Canal, Clapham Junction, Elephant and Castle, Waterloo/South Bank and Euston.
Paul Nichols, divisional director of regeneration and planning, said: “The basic thesis is that only the outer boroughs are able to provide homes for most Londoners.
“Those suburbs with great transport connections like Harrow are going to prosper. They also put quite a lot of weight on the Housing Zone designations and on the need for more PRS as part of the mix."
