Plans for Harrow Magistrates Court building to be heard this week
Plans to turn a former court house into a day centre are due to be decided next week.
The proposals for Harrow Magistrates Court, in Rosslyn Crescent, will go before Harrow Borough Council’s planning committee on Tuesday, September 3.
The court was closed by the Government in 2011 as part of cost-cutting measures across the justice sector, which led to outrage in the community.
The building was sold by the Ministry of Justice in 2012 and legal proceedings had not been carried out at the building since a year earlier.
According to documents on Harrow Council's website, planning officers will recommend that councillors refuse applicant The Jasper Foundation planning permission for the site.
The main reason for this is the impact the plans would have on the Grade II listed building which would lead to a loss of historical fixtures, fittings and overall character.
Members of the committee are due to make a final decision on the proposals at the meeting this week.
