"As Leader of the Liberal Democrats at City Hall I share the concerns of local Liberal Democrat Councillors and Lynne Featherstone MP about the lack of consultation with local residents about the plans for the Pinkham Way site. A real and proper consultation must take place.
I am also concerned that Pinkham Way would cause increased congestion and thousands of additional vehicle movements per year in Haringey, and this would increase levels of air pollution in the area.
From a Londonwide perspective, my colleagues Dee Doocey AM and Mike Tuffrey AM and I believe that the Mayor must do much more to reduce the amount of waste produced in London, and to encourage increased recycling levels - which would mean there would be less need for these vast new waste sites."
