A street market in North Harrow is to become a permanent fixture after more than 4,000 people attended a pilot event.

More than 60 stalls will line Station Road and Pinner Road for a three-day market, once a month, from September in a bid to revive the high street, which traders have said is “dying”.

A test event held in March, which was funded by the Mayor of London’s Outer London Fund, attracted thousands of people and Harrow councillors have taken the decision to install it permanently.

The first event, from September 6-8, will include stalls selling food, jewellery, fashion, homeware, flowers, pastries and baby products, amongst other things.

David Fishburn, owner of Inform Print, in Pinner Road, which has been open since 1983, said he was “pleased” to see the council keeping its commitment to regenerate the area.

He said: “The market has been fantastic for the area and I’m delighted to see it return on a permanent basis. It’s attracted more people to the area and helped businesses in the area.”

The market will be a regular monthly event, taking place on the first Thursday to Saturday of each month.

It is one of a few measures taken by Harrow Council to try and revive the local economy. Last month, it relaxed planning regulations in the area to encourage more businesses to open up shops.

Councillor Keith Ferry, portfolio holder for planning and regeneration, said: “The street market is about bringing the bustle back to North Harrow.

“It will help the local economy grow by attracting more shoppers to the area while providing local entrepreneurs with the chance to start up their own businesses.”

Last week, traders gave a mixed reaction to plans to open a gym in a disused retail unit on the former Safeway site in Pinner Road, with most agreeing it was “better than nothing”.
