Consultation time to save Pinner Park Farm is 'ludicrously short'

Harrow Borough Council is consulting on using land at Pinner Park Farm for housing and a country park

First published in News

I am writing as a supporter of Friends of Pinner Park Farm.

Please help this group, which is fighting to prevent either a country park or development there, and the terrible loss of a tenanted working farm that is a great asset in the borough.

It is of historical importance right on our doorstep — teaching children how and where food comes from and giving the next generation a reverence for the environment and history.

The consultation time is ludicrously short with scant publicity about the loss of rural character to yet more urban sprawl if the Harrow Borough Council proposals go ahead.

We must fight the loss of an unspoilt, well-used oasis that livestock and hay-making bring to life and enrich residents’ lives at no cost to the taxpayer — unlike a country park with upkeep costs or expensive housing in the wrong place.

There is a petition here, it still needs about 400 signatures for the council to reconsider their plans:
