Harrow is a London borough found in the north western part of the city which is probably best known for being home to the exclusive and famous private school which shares the borough’s name. The borough shares borders with Hertfordshire to the north and other London boroughs: Hillingdon to the west, Ealing to the south, Brent to the south-east and Barnet to the east.
The Administrative History Of Harrow
Harrow was formed as an urban district of the county of Middlesex in 1934 as a merger of the former area of Harrow on the Hill Urban District, Hendon Rural District and Wealdstone Urban District. The status of the borough next changed 20 years later in 1954, when Harrow became a municipal borough, but this status only latest until the year 1965.
In 1965, the borough in its entirety was made a London Borough and part of Greater London by virtue of the 1963 Local Government Act, making it the only London borough to replicate exactly the unchanged boundaries of a single former district.
The Population Of Harrow
According to the latest available census data, the London Borough of Harrow is home to approximately 240,000 permanent residents. When you find out that the borough covers an estimated land area of 19.5 square miles, you realise that this gives Harrow an approximate population density of close to 12,000 per square mile.
This density figure is actually far from the highest amongst London boroughs, but it is significantly higher than in most places outside the capital. What that means is that on a national scale Harrow is likely to see a comparatively large number of accidents and injuries in any given time scale. It is for that reason, therefore, that we will now briefly discuss the issues surrounding Harrow accident claim proceedings.
Harrow Accident Claim Proceedings
A higher than average accident rate produces more instances of Harrow accident claim proceedings for the simple reason that these claims follow accidents and incidents which cause injury to a party that was not at fault for the incident.
