Brian Coleman AM: “Secretary of State must ‘call in’ Brent Cross Cricklewood decision”
16 MARCH 2010
This follows the Mayor of London’s decision on March 12 not to direct refusal of the controversial housing and retail scheme.
Commenting, Mr Coleman said:
“The Brent Cross Cricklewood development, if it is allowed to go ahead, will be a disaster for my constituents in Barnet, and in other neighbouring areas.
“It will overwhelm local infrastructure and impose thousands of ugly and unwanted high rise flats. Indeed, the scheme has attracted so many local objectors that the recent planning meeting had to be held over two days, with additional space set aside in the Town Hall.
“Last December I wrote to the Government Office for London, asking the Secretary of State to call in the plans. He must act on this, so that we can tear up these misguided proposals and start again.”
