This week, I would like to introduce another of our Harrow priorities to put our residents first.
As part of our regeneration plan, we want to limit tall buildings and inappropriate developments and conversions, especially in our suburbs.
To protect the character of our borough, we are looking into policies giving planners more powers to stop unsuitable plans from going ahead.
You can read more about our regeneration policy in the MyHarrow newsletter.
London Climate Action Week
Saturday marks the start of London Climate Action Week, a time to harness the power of the capital and its people and communities to influence and shape global climate action - and raise awareness for us all.
Please do find out more on Londonclimateactionweek.org about what we can do as individuals and a community to support the world around us.
On Wednesday, we celebrated the fourth national Windrush Day, paying tribute to the outstanding contribution made by the Windrush Generation and their descendants to this country.
The day was marked by the unveiling of the National Windrush Monument at London Waterloo Station.
Our flagship awards are back! I'm excited to announce nominations are open for Harrow's Heroes awards - and invite you to shout about any individual or team who has made a difference to the lives of others.
There's a month to get your nomination in and you can find out more in the newsletter.
It's their time to take the limelight so we as a community can recognise and thank them for all they do to put Harrow and its residents first.
