"A controversial planning application for a Muswell Hill waste plant at Pinkham Way has been sent back to the drawing board - just as planning bosses reveal they are receiving up to 50 objections to it EVERY DAY.
"Barry James, of The Drive, New Southgate, a member of the Bounds Green and District Residents’ Association, said:
“If the [seven] councils was so keen for developments [to have] long planning gestations, then they would have set up the 'North London Waste Plan' differently, with earlier public scrutiny.
“It is becoming increasingly obvious that the NLWP was set up on the published timeline deliberately, and the North London Waste Authority was always going to put in an outline planning application early, to deny residents the right to be heard.”

NLWP responses: "This is not the end. It is not even the beginning of the end. But it is, perhaps, the end of the beginning"

Below is the response you receive, if you email the 'North London Waste Plan' (which is really Archie.Onslow@camden.gov.uk):
"Out of Office AutoReply: Response to Draft Neoth [sic] London Waste Plan""I am out of the office until 12th July 2011 and will deal with your email on my return.
"Please not [sic] that the deadline for responses on the proposed submission version of the North London Waste Plan is the end of 8th July."
So you definitely had until 23.59 last night, to respond to the waste plan.
However, we have this extra information....
"As you can see, the person who is reviewing all the comments - Archie Onslow - is on holiday, and is not back until Tuesday.
"I confirmed with his colleague that it would be okay to send comments in later than today (the original deadline, 8th July).
"I was told it would be very rare for the planning inspector to decline any input because it was sent in a few days late, especially when the person responsible for reading the comments is on holiday, anyway!
So if anyone still wishes to make any comments on the NLWP, you've a bit of a breathing space. Perhaps you were wanting to, and simply didn't have enough time to sit down and do it.
"Well, it looks like the weather this weekend isn't going to be too brilliant. And if someone else in your group has more interest in the 'North London Waste Plan' than you, then please tell them!
