[So that's okay then!]


  1. This is utterly terrifying and typifies the Council's cavalier and short ternmist approach to new developments. Build it and worry about the infrastructure afterwards. We can always buy a bunch of portacabins when we run out of school places, the new people won't need libraries, they can just download electronic books to their kindles, the roads, well main roads are TFLs problem not ours, we don't need parks or leisure centres for all these new people because their kids can play in the multi storey car park at Brent Cross - well at least its dry.

    Only in Barnet!

  2. Since Boris's visit it has gone awfully quiet on the subject of Brent Cross redevelopment. Is there any concrete news ( oops, lots of concrete is heading our way )
