"The current Brent Cross waste transfer facility [WTF!] is on the eastern side of the railway lines. Barnet Council wish to move it, to facilitate the building of expensive apartments as part of the 'regeneration' plans. Originally, the North London Waste Authority opposed the move on the grounds of proximity to houses and schools, environmental aspects, and the fact that they could not guarantee that HGVs would not rat-run in Dollis Hill and the rest of Brent.

"I attach a copy of their objections: these were withdrawn at the last moment, despite all the comments still being valid. Their reasons for doing so are the subject of an FOI request which has not, as yet, been answered. The NLWA also stated that the proposed site was too small."

"Campaigners fighting 'illogical' plans to build on a green space in Cricklewood have just days left to respond to a consultation.

"The land outside B&Q, in Cricklewood Lane, has been sold to developers – much to the dismay of residents trying to save it.

"Barnet Borough Council’s consultation against the plans expires on 6 December, and people are being urged to have their say.

"The Coalition for a Sustainable Brent Cross Cricklewood Development is trying to get the council to make a U-turn on its original decision."
