Residents Condemn Store's Road Plans

A superstore is facing opposition to the traffic and highway measures it proposes to put in place as part of its development plans for Stanmore Town Centre.

A superstore is facing opposition to the traffic and highway measures it proposes to put in place as part of its development plans for Stanmore Town Centre.

Planning permission was granted for a new Sainsbury's in Elm Park in June 1998 on the condition that it introduce improvements to roads in the vicinity of the development.

Yesterday Harrow's Traffic and Road Safety Panel met and heard opposition to the plans.

Campaigners objected to: the proposed parking restrictions in Church Road, Stanmore, Elm Park and Broadway; the relocation of the bus lay-by in Church Road; the proposed pelican crossing in Stanmore Hill; a petition for a pedestrian phase at the Stanmore Hill/Church Road/Broadway junction; and the re-siting of the Elm Park barrier.

Other schemes also provoked letters of protest.

There were eight objections including one petition received against introducing proposed waiting restrictions and bus stop clearways in Kenton Lane, near Priestmead School.

A petition was received over a decision by the panel to resite proposed speed cameras.

It had agreed to install two speed cameras one in George V Avenue near Elmcroft Crescent and the other in St Thomas Drive, Pinner.

A petition containing 138 signatures was handed in by residents urging the council to reposition the speed cameras at alternative locations preferred by the residents in nearby locations.

They expressed reservations that the current proposals would not slow vehicles entering residential areas at each end of fields by Pinner Farm.
