Advertisement Banners on Lamp Posts!

Pinner Association have received notification of two planning applications for placing advertising Banners on the lampposts in Marsh Road between East Cote Road and Station Approach and Bridge Street plus part of Love Lane up to Bishops walk. These will be the same size as those used for the London 2012 Olympics.

Harrow Council is planning to rent out the banners for commercial advertising.

If these applications are passed we are uncertain whether we will be able to erect the Christmas Lights as we have been informed that it is advertising banners OR lights – not both.

We are also concerned about:

  • The excessive street cluster and the fact that they could be a distraction to drivers etc.
  • It would hide existing signage for Car Parks and Heath Robinson Museum.
  • The flowers baskets currently on the lamp posts would need to be permanently removed.
  • Loss of view for CCTV cameras.

If you wish to add your comments the planning applications are

  • P/3752/18 – Bridge Street
  • P/3753/18 – Marsh Road

There are similar planning applications for lamppost banners in North Harrow, Hatch End, and Rayners Lane.

Volunteers needed

Pinner Panto committee are looking for volunteers to help stewarding on the evening of the 29th November.

If you can only spare 1 hour that would be wonderful!. I personally look forward to stewarding each year – especially the zebra crossing duty.

If you are able to help, leave a message/comment with your name, email address and/or phone number and we will forward it to the organising committee.

 

Albury Drive Closed for Filming 31 August.

On Friday 31 August part of Albury Drive will be closed to traffic.  This will be between 145 & 159 Albury Drive.

This is because they hope to film some of the scenes for the movie Rocketman (about Elton John’s life). The film stars Taron Egerton.

The base unit will be at St Helen’s School Northwood and NOT Waxwell Lane Car Park.

 

SCAM – Don’t ring 020 3287 4777 or 0203 239 6767.

We have received an email from one of our local PSCO’s.

 

Dear Resident,

This morning we have received numerous reports from elderly residents who have received a pre-recorded voice message on their landline from telephone number 020 3287 4777.

The message states that an arrest warrant has been issued and the recipient would be prosecuted unless they called the number back.

I have called this number and the person claims they are from the HMRC. They will ask you to provide the phone number you received the message on, your name and then your National Insurance (NI) number.

THIS IS A SCAM!!

Please do NOT call the phone number back. No government agency would ever use a pre-recorded message for official matters like this.

Please pass this message to anyone you know, especially elderly relatives, neighbours and friends.

Kind regards,

Lee O’Brien PCSO 7562QA
