Harrow is a suburban town situated in the London Borough of Harrow. It is surrounded by Wealdstone in the North; Harrow on the Hill in the south; North Harrow, West Harrow, and South Harrow in the West; and Belmont, Kenton, and Northwick Park in the East. Wealdstone has a sturdy industrial legacy of some manufacturing firms such as Whitefiars Glass, and Winsor & Newton. Major employers in this region include Kodak Alaris (a technology company), Ladbrokes (a British-based betting and gambling company), and the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital. It forms a commercial hub, including a town centre with two shopping centres.

Recently, Lambeth council has signed a four-year contract to provide 'communications services' to Harrow council. However, it is ending the four-year contract, worth £0.4mn a year, just after a couple of years as officers at Lambeth council running both the contract and its finances are leaving. Lambeth council feels that there will be a significant change with the staff leaving and it would leave a gap in contract management including its financials. The contract is due to end on 1 July 2017 and Lambeth council's plan is to move the six Lambeth Communications (LamCo) staff deployed on the contract to Harrow council – the staff will move to Harrow with their current pay and conditions.
