Labour likely to retain Harrow indefinitely

BCRecommendations for changes to Harrow’s ward boundaries have been published following consultation with the people who live and work here, though still chance to say what you think of them by 11 February 2019 before these become final on 26 March 2019 and implemented  in May 2022 if approved by the parliament.
The division lines tend to run alongside roads or railway tracks to increase or reduce the size of the wards – return of historic Centenary is interesting (last held by Labour).
The proposals  from the Boundary Commission include Harrow being represented by 55 councillors in the future, 8 fewer than now, and having an extra ward – 22 in total. Those councillors should represent 11 three-councillor wards and 11 two-councillor wards across the council area.
The dynamics of the 2 and 3 councillor wards and who holds these now projects increased number of Labour and lesser number of Tory councillors.
Harrow East and Hatch End would be more interesting battlefield for sitting Tory councillors as four Tory wards are recommended to be the 2-Cllr wards – wonder who would win in the ward selection in Belmont, Canons, Harrow Weald and Hatch End, given their controversial standing in their relevant Tory associations, past or present!
