Forward two years and the plan has come to fruition with an 18 story tower planned. Soon to go to the Planners at Barnet Council.
At the moment a coalition of the Mill Hill Neighbourhood Forum , Mill Hill Residents Association, University College London Observatory and here at Mill Hill Broadway News are pledged to fight these plans for the sake of our area. The reasons to oppose this are endless. We need more housing but this is the wrong plan in the wrong place.
The Neighbourhood Forum are canvassing opinion on their FACEBOOK page and at the moment it seems likely that the whole area wishes to rise up and protest in person outside the planning meeting when these plans come before the Council.
At present we have no idea whether our local councillors are against the plan - but hope to bring you their views in the near future. As our representatives we hope they will join us in the protest at a yet to be arranged date.
See the picture below of the WEST HENDON TOWER taken in January 2016 and the tower and associated 10 storey development is similar for Pentavia Park. It does seem that someone on Barnet Coucil seems to think this development style is ideal to roll out everywhere in the Borough regardless of local plans or feelings. You may never have protested before but if you care about the future of our area then this may be the one time you decide enough is enough.
