Edgware residents are rightly concerned about the scale and impact of the proposed Ballymore/TfL development on The Broadwalk Centre site. Whilst investment into Edgware is welcome, any development must be in keeping with the area and ensure adequate facilities and infrastructure, including parking, for both residents and existing local businesses.
The current proposed development of 4,000 homes, with some buildings planned to be 29 storeys, is excessive and not in the interests of Edgware. I therefore am supporting residents, Edgware Councillors and Barnet London Assembly candidate, Julie Redmond, in calling on Labour-run Barnet Council and the Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, to listen to the concerns of residents and ensure:
- A substantial reduction in the size and scale of the residential development
- Similar levels of non-residential parking to that currently provided for those using the shops and businesses in Edgware as well as decent levels of residential parking
- Development of infrastructure and additional community services to support these new homes. This includes GP services, school places and other amenities that can accommodate this scheme
- Full consultation with all local residents on the revised proposals
Please sign the petition to send to Barnet Council and the Mayor of London:
