Question

Now that the Planning Inspector has declared the North London Waste Plan to be unsound, what action will you take to ensure that any future plan listens to local residents and does not include the controversial and unpopular proposal for a waste management facility at Pinkham Way in my constituency?

Answered By:

The Inspector's report following the EiP into the Haringey core strategy is expected soon and this will establish whether the Pinkham Way site has an employment site designation and is therefore suitable as a waste use.

Future drafts of the North London Waste Plan will be consulted on and local residents will have another opportunity to object to the site designation. I will of course take these views into account when responding to consultations on the Waste Plan.
