Among these is of course Pinkham Way, a Grade 1 nature conservation site, whose ecological richness has recently been highlighted in the Council’s Open Space and Biodiversity Study as ‘an undisturbed site of high ecological value ... a rare resource for Haringey’.
As many of you will know, the North London Waste Authority and Barnet, the owners, remain dead set on developing this utterly unsuitable site, located as it is by the most congested part of the most congested road in London, for waste treatment. We experience the daily consequences of this congestion on our local roads.
Haringey are now, to their great credit, assessing the site on proper planning principles and have placed increasing constraints on any development proposal.
This is our last chance to influence the Council and urge them to protect a site which is being revealed as holding an increasingly rich biodiversity. It’s absolutely vital therefore that we collect as many signatures as possible in support of our response (an amazing 900 of you signed up to our previous submission, and we need to beat that by a distance!).
Details of the PWA response are on their website: www.pinkhamwayalliance.org
If you choose to make your own submission, please feel free to use these as a guide if necessary. (You’ll find the relevant Sites Allocation document on the Haringey website, www.haringey.gov.uk. PW details are on pp 138-139 of the document.)
As many adult members of a household as want to can sign up. PLEASE pass this message on to your family, friends and neighbours. The deadline for signing is 5pm on Wednesday, 25th March. The deadline for your own response to Haringey (firstname.lastname@example.org) is 5pm on Friday, 27th March.
Also, PWA are holding a public meeting regarding their response. The meeting is at Hollickwood School, Sydney Road, N10 2NL. Wednesday 25th March at 7pm.
