'Wembley Matters': "Barnet Council approve ruination of the Welsh Harp"

Link to web site

"Barnet Planning Committee tonight passed the planning application for the West Hendon Development on the banks of the Welsh Harp, by 5 votes to 4, after a sometimes rancorous debate.

"The presentation by a planning officer produced protests from Andrew Dismore, AM for Barnet and Camden, who said that he had never heard such a biased officers' report in 30 years of involvement in politics. He said the officer was acting as a advocate for the developers, rather as someone presenting a balanced view on which the Planning Committee could make a decision.

"... Javaid Ashraf (Liberal Democrat, Dollis Hill) told the committee that he was a former chair of the Welsh Harp JCC. He had three main concerns: density, damage to the SSSI, and traffic congestion. He said he was not against redevelopment. He was supportive of 'a' scheme but not 'this' scheme."
