MILL HILL PUBLIC MEETING | Report and Full Videos of the Event on Wednesday 21 September

Last night in the Hartley Hall the Mill Hill Neighbourhood Forum held one of their bi-annual PUBLIC MEETINGS.  The event was very well attended with a full hall hearing about the latest news and plans for the Mill Hill area.  Also in attendance were representatives from Barnet Council  - GLA Member Andrew Dismore and various representative of local organisations and business leaders.

This is a brief summary of what happened and we suggest you watch the videos.  There was no lighting in the Hartley Hall for filming so the projector can sometimes lead to our HD camera losing definition but we hope you enjoy the videos and please share them.

The next meeting will be in March. We intend to cover it - but we hope you can be there in person.  We all need to make a difference by getting involved in our area.


INTRODUCTION

John Gillett the Chair of the Mill Hill Neighbourhood Forum introduced the topics for the evening.  This short 2 minute video sets the scene for the evening.


BARNET COUNCIL PRESENTATION about RUBBISH COLLECTION, BINS & STREET CLEANING on Mill Hill Broadway

Representatives from Barnet Council gave a very good presentation about their proposed plan to improve the Broadway and this is worth watching.  Just under 15 minutes.  We think this is an excellent plan.  But they want YOUR views - so watch and then email the council with your thoughts.

BARNET COUNCIL QUESTION AND ANSWER SESSION

The meeting then questioned the Barnet Council representatives for about 10 minutes.




THAMESLINK MILL HILL BROADWAY STATION LIFTS PLANS

A 10 minute presentation about proposals for a set of lifts at Mill Hill Broadway costing between 5 and 25 million pounds !   Hopefully this will happen as soon as possible with the 2018 8 trains an hour service and the new stock of 8 and 12 car trains many of which are the new style with no doors between carriages making it easier to find a seat. These trains also have digital displays and wide aisles and look fantastic.




PENTAVIA DEVELOPMENT
The area next to the Dual Carriageway where B&Q and ARGOS used to be has been purchased by a developer for 27 million pounds.   They are proposing a 9 storey complex which is striking fear into everyone because it lacks access - will block views and add 7% to the local area population.  This is a must watch video so you can see what is proposed. Needless to say the meeting was very vocal in their opposition to the plans as they stand.  We highlighted this plan last year in our article SKYSCRAPERS FOR MILL HILL?  when it was first proposed in an even bigger plan.  Even this new plan seems totally over the top and we think it looks like the development next to West Hampstead Station.....which is massive and overbearing.

 



NIMR DEVELOPMENT | IBIS DEVELOPMENT | HASMONEAN SCHOOL


There are several other major developments planned for Mill Hill and John Gillett outlined several of them and you can see them in this video.
 



MILL HILL CIRCUS PLAN

There is one major road development which will reconfigure the Mill Hill Circus Roundabout. To find out the details watch this video.







MILL HILL NEIGHBOURHOOD FORUM PROJECTS

The Neighbourhood Forum has several projects including : THE POCKET PARK - SALCOMBE GARDENS - SARACENS FIREWORKS DISPLAY - MILL HILL GUIDE PUBLISHING - THE LIBRARY HUB - THE MARKETS and THE CHRISTMAS LIGHTS SWITCH ON.  These are all explained in this video.




GENERAL QUESTIONS ABOUT THE AREA FROM MEETING MEMBERS


Finally before the meeting drew to a close there was a question and answer session which included contributions from Barnet Council representatives and Andrew Dismore from the GLA.  This video shows the main questions.



The meeting ended at about 9.25p.m with a vote of thanks from the meeting to John for putting together such an informative evening.  The next meeting will be in March and it is important everyone who can attends.

WEDNESDAY at 7.30p.m PUBLIC MEETING AT HARTLEY HALL | Discussion about Future Plans for Mill Hill

We will be covering this event at the HARTLEY HALL because it is so important and there are some major announcements - plus we have the chance to grill some Barnet Council officials who are coming along to do some Q and A sessions.

There is also a chance to sign up for the MILL HILL GUIDE - submissions close this week - and it is out in October. This annual guide is the local information handbook and with advertising at cost it is an easy way for a business or organisation to get in touch with all 10,000 households in Mill Hill.  This is targeted advertising which will be backed by a digital copy here at BROADWAY NEWS and on ISSUU.  Ads are still available from just £70.  Which is unbelievable to reach 10,000 homes with 5,000 copies out in the Community and nearby on top of that.

We are looking forward to the debate about the rubbish bin situation on Broadway - which is out of control.

If you cant make it then come back to this site on THURSDAY and we hope to have links to some videos and a report from the event.   Get there well in time to make sure you get a good seat ! Doors Open at 7p.m we believe.
