Barnet and Brent residents are extremely concerned about plans to install a large waste transfer station near Dollis Hill.  They stress that the local area will not be able to cope with the significant increase in HGV traffic that the site will cause, and state that the siting is poorly thought out, being in close proximity to an infants' school.  Will you commit to reviewing this application?

Due to its strategic nature, the application for the waste transfer station has been formally referred to me for full review. My planning officers are currently proactively engaged with the Council and the applicant, following pre-application discussions, to address outstanding strategic issues. In due course, I will consider the case and provide my initial comments to the Council. In order not to fetter my statutory decision making powers, I cannot comment on the details of the case at this stage.
