Conservatives win Harrow Local Election 2022 - Their Febrary 2022 Budget Propposals

Conservatives win Harrow Local Election 2022 - Their Febrary 2022 Budget Propposals
'The Harrow Council Conservative Group proposes this amendment to the budget (as set out in appendix one) so that we have a budget that delivers on what matters to Harrow’s residents. 
By using funds already raised from prosecuting illegal developments and planning breaches as well as removing previous increased spending from HR, we will create a Planning Enforcement Taskforce, which will specifically target illegal HMOs and beds-in-sheds in the borough.
By utilising funds intended for the flawed Accommodation Strategy, we will invest in a ‘Street Cleaning Taskforce’, helping to fight the blight of fly-tipping which is affecting Harrow.
In order to help local businesses to get back on their feet as we recover from the Covid epidemic, we are proposing an increase in free on-street parking from 20 minutes to 60 minutes throughout the borough. This will allow residents to park and shop, go to the bank, or the Post Office for longer, helping support small businesses.
Furthermore, we intend to introduce 60 minutes free parking in all car parks owned by the Council. This will further support businesses and give something back to residents.
We propose introducing a free bulk waste collection scheme, which would remove the charge for collecting items like mattresses and sofas. This will encourage residents to do the right thing and have the Council pick up these items from where they live. We believe this will help reduce fly-tipping throughout the borough. It is not right that Harrow residents pay one of the highest Council Tax in London only to be charged again to have their waste collected.
Harrow Council has increased Council Tax by 31.1% since 2011, which is the biggest increase in London. We do not believe it is right that Councillors get a pay rise when the Council is putting Council tax up by the maximum amount again and not dealing with the problems facing Harrow residents. Having regard to the report of the Independent Panel titled ‘The Remuneration of Councils in London 2022’, the members allowances increase should not be introduced.'
