Cat Hill campaigners rally supporters in Barnet and Enfield
Opponents of a large housing development in Cat Hill are rallying their supporters after new plans were submitted for the site.
Developers L&Q entered revised plans for the former Middlesex University site, which include 232 new homes in four-storey tower blocks – 18 less homes that the previous application.
Members of Campaign for Cat Hill, which has fought every step of the planning process, issued a message to supporters this weekend urging them to write letters of objection to the latest application.
Chipping Barnet MP Theresa Villiers and three East Barnet ward councillors have all voiced concerns over the plans.
In at statement issued on her website, Ms Villiers said: “I am still unhappy with this proposal. This is not the right development for the area. It is still far too dense.
“The changes made by L&Q are not nearly significant enough to deal with the concerns of my constituents. Along with the ward councillors, I will be opposing this second planning application just as I did the first one L&Q submitted for Cat Hill.
“I will continue to support the work of the Save Cat Hill Campaign and I will be urging everyone to write to Enfield Council to oppose this development.”
