RESIDENTS grilled councillors about new building developments and the increase in sixth form centres in Harrow at a special question and answer event.
Harrow Council hosted a question time session at Harrow Arts Centre last Wednesday.
More than 40 people turned up to ask members of the cabinet about issues affecting the area.
Subjects covered included what the council were doing to increase the number of parking bays in Harrow and why the borough needed more sixth forms.
Tony Ferrari (Conservative), said residents raised some interesting questions at the event.
He said: "Residents were concerned about development in the area and we said we needed to ensure these were for the best for the community.
"We would always like more people to turn up to these events. What we plan to do is have a series of events across the borough so people in different areas get the opportunity to come along."
Councillor Thaya Idaikkdar (Labour), also attended the event and said: "Most of the questions were about planning and the environment.
"Residents seemed very unhappy that the borough is getting dirtier and dirtier by the day."
Leader of the council David Ashton said: "This is local democracy in action."
