People living in Harrow have just days to have their say on the future of the borough’s political boundaries.

England’s Boundary Commission put forward a number of changes, which would see the number of Harrow councillors drop from 63 to 55.

There would also be a series of ward alterations – Queensbury would be renamed Centenary, while Headstone North and South would have representatives from a joint Headstone ward and the newly-created North Harrow.

Wealdstone ward would be split into east and west, and Stanmore Park would become larger – renamed as Stanmore – and taking part of the Canons ward area.

Belmont, Canons, Harrow-on-the-Hill, Harrow Weald, Hatch End, Kenton West, Rayners Lane, Roxbourne and West Harrow would all be represented by two councillors as opposed to three.

Colin Mellors, chairman of the England Boundary Commission, said: “Our reviews will make local elections fairer for voters and we will try and build council wards that mean something to local communities.

“We want to hear evidence from the people who know Harrow best about the shape of local communities across the borough before we finalise our recommendations.”

The proposals are part of a London-wide scheme, which will see changes to internal borders in 25 boroughs over three years.

In Harrow’s case, the final recommendations will be published on March 26. If approved by Parliament, they will come into effect for the 2022 elections.

The aim is to promote “electoral equality”, with each councillor representing roughly the same number of voters – in closely-fought areas, this could have far-reaching consequences.

Harrow residents have until February 11 to take part in the consultation. Visit for more information.
