From today, (1 August 2022) residents have access to 1 hour free on street parking across Harrow. This is an increase of 40 minutes, as previously only the first 20 minutes were free.
Cllr Norman Stevenson, Cabinet Member for Business & Employment, commented:
“We promised one hour free on-street parking and here it is – for residents to enjoy! While neighbouring boroughs are reducing their free parking time for residents, we have extended it from 20mins to 1 hour, and this is something to be proud of!
“But it’s not about us, it’s about helping local businesses bounce back from the pandemic, protecting jobs and creating new employment opportunities. So please make the most of this offer, shop local and support local businesses.”
Also commenting, Cllr Anjana Patel, the Cabinet Member responsible for Environment & Community Safety, said:
“We’re making life that little bit easier for our residents with an hour’s free parking on street – whether they want to run a quick errand, meet friends, or have something to eat.
“We pledged to do this in May and I am delighted that quite quickly we have made this possible – and it’s going live in a matter of days. This is more than just about putting residents first, it’s about doing the right thing for our businesses and high streets. I know many residents and businesses will welcome this.”
Harrow Conservatives are supporting local people and delivering on our promise to put residents first!
