Mr Mustard: "Short term or short of space?" (Barnet moving its Mill Hill East's dustcart depot, not to Pinkham Way but to Oakleigh Road South)

[Mr Mustard reporting a web site reader]

"Barnet Council only last week announced they had found two suitable sites for the relocation with Oakleigh Road South (a residential area with a childrens' nursery nearby) being their preferred location.

"I went to the emergency additional meeting of the Assets, Regeneration and Growth Committee meeting last night. Why is it an emergency to purchase land within 7 days of making the announcement public?

"I can only assume that it is because they want to rush this through unopposed, before residents become aware of what is being proposed. There were only 6 residents in attendance including myself."

Enfield Independent: "Plans for waste depot at Pinkham Way dropped"

Link to web site

"Plans for a waste and vehicle depot at Pinkham Way have been dropped after an agreement could not be reached.

"Barnet Borough Council was considering plans to build a vehicle depot and waste transfer facility on the Pinkham Way site in Haringey by 2016.

"However, these have been dropped after the withdrawal of the proposals from the North London Waste Authority, which formed part of a joint planning application for the site.

"Alternative options for Pinkham Way will be considered, including housing or the potential sale of the whole site to the waste authority."
