Hands off High Barnet!

Theresa Villiers MP for Chipping Barnet has launched a petition objecting to proposals by the Mayor of London and TfL to build blocks of flats at High Barnet tube station. TfL have not yet published their plans in detail, but they are proposing 450 new dwellings in blocks of up to eight stories high. The capacity of the station’s car park would be reduced by 75%. A substantial part of the wooded area at the northern end of the station would be built over. Many residents are strongly opposing the development because of the loss of parking spaces and because the density and height of the development would be inconsistent with the character of the surrounding neighbourhood. Such a significant increase in population would also place strain on local infrastructure. This problem is intensified by the fact that TfL do not intend to provide any parking spaces for residents of the flats they wish to build, meaning more cars displaced on to residential streets which are already congested.

If you oppose these plans, please sign the petition below.

To the House of Commons,

The petition of residents of the Chipping Barnet constituency

Declares that we the undersigned strongly object to the plans put forward by the Mayor of London and Transport for London (TfL), to build around 450 flats on the car park and surrounding land at High Barnet London Underground Station, including blocks of up to eight storeys.
 
The petitioners therefore request that the House of Commons urges the Government to press the Mayor of London and TfL to drop these proposals for development at High Barnet station.
