Pe­ti­tion calls for bor­ough change

Harefield Gazette - - NEWS -

AN on­line pe­ti­tion is call­ing for the Hert­ford­shire sub­urb of South Ox­hey to be made part of the London Bor­ough of Hilling­don.

The pe­ti­tion says the move would ben­e­fit both ar­eas. South Ox­hey, it says, would have bet­ter trans­port links and Hilling­don could use the Wat­ford sub­urb’s sur­plus land to meet hous­ing de­mands.

The sug­ges­tion has been pub­lished on the web­site Change.org and by Mon­day had re­ceived 38 of the 65 sig­na­tures needed be­fore it can be de­liv­ered to London mayor Boris John­son; Hilling­don Coun­cil; Three Rivers Dis­trict Coun­cil, South Ox­hey’s lo­cal au­thor­ity; and the Lo­cal Gov­ern­ment Bound­ary Com­mis­sion for Eng­land (LGBCE).
