Brent LibDems: "Two weeks left to object to Barnet building 230 more flats on Edgware Road"

"Dollis Hill residents have just two weeks left to tell Barnet Council what they think about a massive housing development on the Edgware Road. If built, the 230 new flats will have a major impact on the A5 and local people.

"The development proposed for the old Parcel Force depot on off Geron Way is just outside the Brent boundary. The new residents will place pressure on local services, traffic and parking, but Barnet Council is not planning to give Brent anything to compensate for the impact.

"In October, Dollis Hill’s Liberal Democrat councillors Javaid Ashraf, Jack Beck and Alison Hopkins wrote to Barnet Council with details of their concerns, about an earlier version of the planning application for the same site that proposed 249 flats.

"Local Liberal Democrat councillor Alison Hopkins said:
“Reducing the number of flats by nineteen does nothing to solve the fundamental problems with this development. It's overcrowded, doesn't meet the need of locals for family housing, is aimed at the buy-to-let market, is high-rise, and puts pressure on Brent's local services.

“Building so many new flats right next to the already congested A5 will affect local traffic, increase competition for parking spaces, and add to pressure on local services in Brent. While Barnet Council benefits from the money generated by the development, Brent residents will have to deal with the consequences.

“We are urging Brent Council to respond to this new application, setting out local concerns, and encourage residents who think they will be affected to do so too.”
"Dollis Hill’s Liberal Democrat councillors are concerned about a series of proposed damaging developments on the Barnet / Brent boundary, including the Brent Cross 'dump'.

"Residents can comment on the planning application:
  • on the Barnet Council website at www.barnet.gov.uk/planning-applications (enter application number F/01932/11), or 
  • by emailing planning.enquiry@barnet.gov.uk, or 
  • by writing to Kevin Waters, Barnet Council Planning, North London Business Park, Oakleigh Road South, London N11 1NP quoting reference F/01932/11 - former Parcel Force Deport, Geron Way.
"The official deadline for responses is Friday 1 February 2013."

  1. There don't seem to be too many pictures of the proposed development but there appear to be a couple of pictures here:



    These pictures seem to have undergone substantial improvement over the last ones I saw.
