Sup­port for sub­urb move

Harefield Gazette - - NEWS -

A PE­TI­TION to get a sub­urb of Wat­ford in­cor­po­rated into Hilling­don bor­ough has re­ceived 100 signatures.

Calls have been made to make South Ox­hey part of Hilling­don in a move which sup­port­ers say would bring mu­tual benefits to both ar­eas.

The pe­ti­tion says al­low­ing the area to be­come part of Hilling­don would al­low the Lon­don coun­cil to tap into sur­plus land to meet grow­ing hous­ing de­mands, while benefits bought to South Ox­hey in­clude im­proved trans­port links. South Ox­hey is a sub­urb of Wat­ford in the Three Rivers dis­trict of Hert­ford­shire.

The pe­ti­tion was pub­lished on change.org, and will be handed to Lon­don Mayor Boris John­son if it gar­ners enough signatures.
