Harrow Times: New council cabinet announced New council cabinet announced

The new Labour administration set to take control of Harrow Borough Council has announced its cabinet.

Labour group leader Councillor David Perry is due to be confirmed as leader of counciil at the meeting on Thursday after his party won a majority in the local elections last month.

In the proposed cabinet, a new member for community, culture and resident engagement has been created to help the borough connect more with people in the borough.

Cllr Perry, who will take the role of strategy, partnerships and corporate leadership, said: “This administration is all about consulting and empowering people so the council works with them and hears their views on major decisions.

“I believe this is a cabinet which contains the right mix of experience and new members who are full of energy and new ideas to make a difference for communities, businesses and families in Harrow, as well as supporting the most vulnerable and helping residents cope with the cost of living crisis.

“With £75m of cuts being forced on Harrow Council, our cabinet will look to consult with residents at every opportunity to bring about real and positive change in these challenging times for Harrow.”

The cabinet includes:

  • Cllr Margaret Davine: Adults and Older People
  • Cllr Glen Hearnden: Housing
  • Cllr Sachin Shah: Finance and Major contracts
  • Cllr Keith Ferry: Business, Planning and Regeneration
  • Cllr Anne Whitehead: Public Health, Equality and Wellbeing
  • Cllr Varsha Parmar: Environment, Crime and Community Safety
  • Cllr Simon Brown: Children, Schools and Young People
  • Cllr Graham Henson: Performance, Corporate Resources and Policy Development
  • Cllr Sue Anderson: Community, Culture and Resident Engagement

oh dear, what have we let ourselves in for (not that I voted for this mob). a dirtier, more dangerous and less prosperous harrow by the time of the next election probably, with higher council taxes

I congratulate Cllr Perry and the Labour cabinet and hope that they focus on the areas in the borough that are most deprived in many respects and getting educated in public opinion by keeping informed and being informed in a very diverse borough.

I hope, as Cllr Perry said “This administration is all about consulting and empowering people so the council works with them and hears their views on major decisions“, will consult with people and organisations who are involved in monitoring and actively intervening into any policies, practices and situations that adversely affect residents welfare and rights, particularly of those vulnerable and less well represented on the council.

I also congratulate Cllr Ajay Maru as Mayor of Harrow for the coming municipal year with Cllr Krishna Suresh as deputy.

The Labour group would now have to evaluate the events in the last year to see how things could be improved, both in terms of it’s as well as the council's work!
