Plans for a new nine-storey block with more than 100 bedrooms alongside shared kitchens and living space will go before councillors.

Harrow Council’s planning committee will debate the scheme, proposed for Lowlands Road, Harrow town centre, on Wednesday (September 23).

The development would provide 104 co-living units, designed to accommodate a double bed, shower room and kitchenette, and with access to communal living and kitchen facilities.

Objections to the proposals have been lodged, with concerns around the scale and design of the building and the suitability of the accommodation.

However, others praised the application and suggested it would make good use of the land in a prime location.

Harrow Council officers recommended permission be granted, subject to a section 106 agreement that covers conditions including a contribution to affordable housing and improved travel in the borough.

As part of Wednesday’s meeting, the planning committee will also discuss plans to convert two homes near Sudbury Hill Station into eight new flats.

The scheme, in New Road, has been recommended for approval by officers, with no objections raised by adjoining properties.

Other items on the agenda include a proposed extension to a café in West End Lane and a garage conversion for two flats in Woodridings Close, both in Pinner.

The meeting, which starts at 6.30pm, can be accessed via the council’s website.
