New Restaurants for Broadway

Three new restaurants are coming to Mill Hill Broadway in the spring. Bobs Cafe will open on 9 April on the Delisserie site. Bobs is one of West London’s best eating and drinking places. It has already been welcomed by the social media sites and should be the place to visit in April. Likely to be popular with Saracens fans as well who like beer ! Caffè Nero will bring their popular offering to the old hsbc site. Plans are in and they look great. No opening date but hopefully by the summer. Dominos pizza finally have a base in Mill Hill taking over the long closed Lloyd’s bank site. This will face the busy Mill Hill circus roundabout hopefully drawing many hungry customers into the Broadway. We think these three big openings show that the Broadway is fast becoming the place to shop and eat in north West London. There are still two sites unused on the Broadway, the Nat West and Halifax. We are sure these will be snapped up very soon and will let you know if we hear anything. Finally, a monthly market starts in the spring on the new town square. 2018 is already looking like a bumper year for the Broadway.

Very impressive event and the organisers deserve great praise for such a great event. The next fair will take place we believe in April. But we will let you know as soon as the date is set.

The planning guidelines consultation has finished for the Pentavia site. An unprecedented number of objections have been made. The community is totally united against the current plan. Now it is over to Barnet Council to rule. If objections matter and if the process is democratic then they need only 5 minutes to say no to this appalling development which most people believe would destroy this area. If they fail to do that then we should all use our vote in May to remove them. It is that simple in democracy. More as we hear it.

Over 400 objections have already been lodged with Barnet Council regarding the massive proposal for the Pentavia development. The size of the development will be likely to overwhelm the area and add to growing problems of crime and traffic which have been caused by the huge development of nearby Colindale. Many residents on Broadway and nearby attribute these things directly to the huge increase in housing. To put Tower blocks in Mill Hill on the Pentavia site is a step too far. Barnet Council will have to listen to these growing concerns or there could be a wholesale dumping of the current councillors in May's elections. We urge people to read the MH Today Feb edition. The Neighbourhood Forum and all local organisations are opposed vehemently against the current plans. Make your voices heard. Before it is too late.
