Asked Of: 
The Mayor


With reference to my Question No: 2014/1996

"I am sure you are aware of the plans for major changes at the RNOH Stanmore, which include a substantial housing development on the site. What assessment have you made of the impact of the plans on the strategic roads, in particular Canon's Corner, also bearing in mind the London Academy expansion plan?"

your response being

"I considered the application at Stage II on 10 April 2013. In that report TfL notes that in relation to highway capacity, that following Stage one and at TfL's request, further assessment has been undertaken regarding possible improvements to the Brockley Hill/Wood Lane junction in order to mitigate traffic arising from the development. Harrow Council has accepted the provision of a signalised junction as effective mitigation and the section 106 agreement will secure this through a section 278 agreement (Highways Act). As these works will also encompass new/improved crossings between the site and the bus stops on Brockley Hill, TfL welcomed the separate condition added which secures the delivery of such facilities prior to the commencement of the Central Development Zone (CDZ). In addition to this, a contribution of £20,000 has been secured towards upgrading the two bus stops on Brockley Hill, which TfL welcomes. As agreed with Harrow, TfL expects to be involved in all of the above section 278 discussions, given its responsibility for maintaining traffic signals and a reliable bus network"

will you  now answer the question I asked, concerning Canon's Corner  and the London Academy expansion plan?

Answered By: 
The Mayor

I refer you to the response given to MQ 2972/2014:

 TfL considered the strategic transport implications, which were set out in my last answer. I would point out that neither Cannon’s Corner nor its constituent roads are part of the Transport for London Road Network. The local impacts were considered by Harrow Council, it specifically considered the impact on Cannon’s Corner, following an objection from Barnet Council. The Council’s Planning Committee report notes that “Given the dilution of development traffic flows, the predicted low percentage impact on Canons Corner is considered negligible and hence does not warrant mitigation measures”.
