Plans for a new depot at Pinkham Way would have “minimal impact” on people living nearby, it has been claimed.

Barnet Borough Council is considering plans for a vehicle depot and waste transfer facility on the Pinkham Way site, in Haringey, by 2016.

A Barnet Council spokesperson said: “The former Friern Barnet Sewage Works at Pinkham Way is the council's longstanding preferred option for a new depot. The land is zoned for industrial use and has direct access to the A406 so would have minimal impact on local residents. Vehicles would access the A406 at non-peak times.

“A planning application is still some way off and the council will obviously consult with local residents, in both Barnet and Haringey, as part of that process.”

Half of the land in Pinkham Way is owned by the council, the other half by the North London Waste Authority, which represents seven north London boroughs, including Barnet, Enfield and Haringey. The site is under the planning control of Haringey Council.

Don't forget that Barnet already approved a 300,000 tonne/year waste incinerator at Brent Cross (in 2010).
