Fly-tipping is a problem throughout the borough of Harrow. Joe Hannon, Enforcement Officer at Harrow Council has produced a Q&A video on YouTube on fly-tipping that the HEA thinks might be useful for residents of Hatch End.
Log on to to tune in.

The takeaway message is report any fly-tipping on the council website. This enables Joe to build up a map of known trouble spots and target them strategically.

HEA Summer Bulletin 2020 – Issue 210

Due to Covid-19 and problems with distribution, the Hatch End Association committee decided to publish a digital-only version of the Summer Bulletin. Please click on the link below to read the Bulletin. It is a much slimmer edition due to the fact that any event we might have organised or attended, and consequently reported on, has had to be postponed or cancelled. We are hoping to be back to normal with our Winter Bulletin.

Grimsdyke Road Area CPZ

At the TARSAP (Traffic and Road Safety Advisory Panel) meeting in August the results of the Grimsdyke Road Area Parking Review were issued. The statement from the Panel is below:

The results clearly indicate that there is no support for the introduction of parking controls in the form of a CPZ in any of the roads within the consultation area. It is therefore recommended not to take forward any proposals to introduce a CPZ in these roads and to take this opportunity to introduce double yellow lines at junctions, bends, turning heads and narrow sections of road which are proposed for safety or access reasons in accordance with the Highway Code regardless of whether a CPZ goes ahead or not throughout the agreed consultation area and to inform the residents of this decision.

The response rate was 63%, which is considered good and to give the results a great deal of validity.


Harrow Council is reviewing the parking arrangements in the Grimsdyke Road area as a result of a petition in 2018 from residents of Grimsdyke Road, Hillview Road and Hallam Gardens to introduce a CPZ (Controlled Parking Zone). A public consultation will open on 12 June until 2 July. Residents who will be affected have received a questionnaire to fill in (see PDF below) and post back to this address by 2 July: Head of Services – Traffic, Highways and Asset Management, Harrow Council, PO Box 39, HA1 2XA.
