"Charity expresses concern over Barnet's Welsh Harp development plans"

Link to Brent and Kilburn Times

"A national charity which looks after and protects waterways across the country has expressed concern over a major housing development [at West Hendon] on the edge of a popular reservoir.

"The Canal and River Trust (CRT), which is responsible for maintaining around 2,000 miles of rivers and waterways across England and Wales, has said it is important to protect the Brent Reservoir.

"The reservoir, which borders Barnet and Brent and is popularly known as the Welsh Harp, is currently under threat from a development which could see around 2,000 new homes including four tower blocks dumped on its borders.

"... The application, from Barrett Homes will be considered by Barnet Council."

Later report:

"Public meeting over
Welsh Harp development
to be held at Brent Town Hall"
"Residents have been urged to attend a public meeting
to oppose a major housing development which could see
thousands of new homes and tower blocks dumped
on the fringes of a popular reservoir and beauty spot.

"Brent councillors are calling on residents to come to the
town hall this weekend to register their opposition to proposals
to build 2,000 new homes on the edge of the Brent Reservoir.

"The public meeting is in Committee Rooms 1,2 & 3
in Brent Town Hall at 5-7pm this Saturday, 4 May."
