Harrow’s Garden Waste Collection – Price increased by £5?

Garden Waste collection across the borough, publicly promoted at £75 a year, seems to have crept up by £5 for no apparent reason.

Harrow Council: Out of touch, out of date, or just incompetent over 101?

This  revelation comes on the back of an A4 tri-fold leaflet shoved through …

Harrow Council Shifts Meetings; Aims to Exclude Public?

Residents are clearly a pain in the backside for Harrow Council. All they do is demand lights get fixed and potholes filled in. Of course, if the council actually did those things without needed to be prompted several times, the borough might be a happier place, and wouldn’t need do-gooders defacing pavements with ‘#happychalk’ type …

Marlborough School Move – Delayed AGAIN

Harrow Council again shows what a shambles its in, with Marlborough School’s return to a newly-constructed building delayed again. Marlborough is unique in the Harrow school expansion programme: firstly, it’s in Cllr David Perry’s own ward, then secondly, the school relocated to the Civic Centre during the rebuild works.

But worry no more. The council is seeking your input …
