The responses reported on here are being used to inform the development of the next version of the plan.
Former Friern Barnet Sewage Treatment Works, Pinkham Way, Haringey:
- Concern about the inclusion of this site was expressed by a significant number of local residents and a range of local organizations, including Hollickwood School, Colney Hatch Residents Association, Bounds Green Residents Association, Hollickwood Community Development Association, Barnet Green Party and local Friends of the Earth groups.
- The main concerns expressed relate to access to the site (particularly the potential use of residential streets by vehicles using the site), traffic congestion, impacts on residential amenity, health, nature conservation and impacts on the adjacent play area and nearby school and community centre.
- Natural England expressed concern about the potential impacts on two Sites of Importance for Nature Conservation (SINCs) on the site.
The decision about whether the site remains in the Plan will also be made in the context of a wider review of the overall need for sites in the light of the new waste projections which have been announced by the Mayor since the draft Plan was published.
