Pinner Park Farm consultation launched by Harrow Borough Council
New homes, a country park and football pitches are part of the plans for a farm owned by Harrow Borough Council.
A consultation on the future of for Pinner Park Farm, just of George V Avenue, was launched by the council today setting out options for the site.
The authority, which owns the 230 acre site, says it aims to provide greater public access to green belt land in the specific part of the borough.
Land within the site is not accessible to the public and is currently used for the grazing of cattle while another part of the site is occupied by a commercial road surfacing company.
The council is currently consulting for the next month onlineon two initial proposals, both of which do not include farming on the site.
Option one would include the restoration of historic farm buildings and turned into homes and the creation of a country park accessible to the public.
The sale of the buildings would provide the money required to create the park.
Other features of option one includes the removal of the road surfacing depot yard to make way for a car park and creation of visitors information centre.
Option two is similar to the first but would include the building of a small housing development within the farmyard and road surfacing depot.
It would also include a country park hub, which would have events arena, green gym, play area, multi-use games area and football pitches.
The council says any plans would have to be self funding in order to work so not to cost authority any money.
Earlier this month concerns were raised about the proposals and how the maintenance of the country park would be paid for.
The public consultation events at Harrow Arts Centre, in Uxbridge Road, Hatch End, will continue until Friday June 27.
People are also able to view the plans on the Harrow Council website as part of an online consultation until July 22.
After this the council will draw up a master plan based on public feedback, and hold a second consultation based on the revised proposals later this year.
