A contentious planning application which would result in 24 new homes will be put before Harrow Council tomorrow (June 13).

The proposal, in Kilby’s Industrial Estate, Bacon Lane, Edgware, was postponed last month after Cllr Stephen Greek highlighted the potential benefits of a site visit.

Council officers have recommended that the planning committee approves the development despite opposition from neighbouring properties.

But, if approved, there will be a Section 106 agreement put in place, which means the agent will have to agree to certain terms to move forward.

The development will provide ten three-bed and 14 four-bed homes, split into five terraces of four or five houses.

None of the homes are deemed affordable so, to compensate, a contribution of £110,000 towards affordable housing is included in the Section 106.

There would also need to be a contribution towards a ‘child play space’ in the area, as well as one to local employment and training initiatives.

As well as criticisms levelled at the lack of affordable housing, the application has been met with some opposition from those living nearby.

There were several concerns about the impact the development would have on their homes in terms of loss of light and privacy.

And officers noted any potential changes to an alleyway that runs along The Chase, which is connected to Bacon Lane.
