Take the decision out of Barnet's hands!
To the Secretary of State
We the undersigned urge the Government to 'call-in' the Brent Cross Cricklewood planning application for independent and impartial assessment. It is not in the public interest for Barnet Council to determine the application for the following reasons:
*There are elements of the plan that have significant impacts outside the Borough of Barnet: in particular 29,000 extra cars per day on the road, and the impact on local shopping and communities. A North West London Light Railway would mitigate some of these effects.
*The proposal?s sustainability needs to be reviewed in terms of: density, the environment, pollution, carbon emissions, the incinerator, siting of waste processing plant, and the effect of high-level walkways on cyclists and pedestrians.
*We do not believe that Barnet Council has fully considered the proposals that in many instances do not contain sufficient detail for the Council to make an informed decision.
