Housing strategies and policies

Demand for housing in Harrow is increasing and we face new challenges. This is because of government plans to change how we develop, let, and manage affordable homes.

We consult to make our housing strategies and policies. They are for the future of housing in Harrow.

To consider the impact of our decisions we use equalities impact assessments. This ensures that our policies and services are fair and open to all. It also ensures that they meet the needs of all our users.
