Cracking down on law breakers

Those intent on carrying out unlawful activities that ruin the quality of life for Harrow residents will see full force of the law as Harrow steps up its enforcement measures.

  • Tougher enforcement action to protect residents
  • Fly-tippers, rogue landlords and unauthorised builds will soon face tougher action
  • Anyone caught flouting the rules will face the law

House of Multiple Occupancy (HMO), beds in sheds, unauthorised builds and fly-tipping are just some of the issues the council will be cracking down on. Anyone caught putting residents at risk, flouting the rules or showing complete disregard for their neighbours and communities will face the law. 

Cllr Paul Osborn, Leader of the Council said:

“Everyone has a right to decent quality of life. Unfortunately, there are a minority who are flouting the rules and negatively impacting the well-being of others. This is simply not on, and that’s why we will be delivering on our promise to enhance our enforcement strategy so that we can put residents first, go after those breaking the rules and make them pay. This is just one of the new Conservative Administration’s priorities to put residents first.”

The remaining priorities are: 

  • Review of regeneration priorities and plans.  
  • Fly-tipping and street cleaning, with free bulky waste collections.  
  • Limits on tall buildings in our suburbs  
  • Treating residents and business as valued customers.
