An MP has launched a campaign against plans to build a 27-storey tower block in Finchley.

The proposed development from Mayor Sadiq Khan and Transport for London would remove all commuter parking at Finchley Central Station.

Finchley and Golders Green MP Mike Freer is against the plans since it would be replaced with just 11 residential parking spaces for 668 flats.

Mr Freer conducted a survey to gather feedback from the community from the proposals. Over 1,000 people living in the area responded, with 95.87% of people against the proposals.

Mr Freer said: “This development doesn’t respect the local area. Of course, new homes are needed but any development must be sensitive to the local area.

“The removal of commuter and residential parking, alongside the height of the development, make these current proposals completely unworkable in my opinion.”

Mr Freer also felt the development off the 27-storey building would “dwarf” the local area by “not being kept in line with existing buildings”.

He added: “I will continue to listen to feedback from constituents, and plan to lobby Transport for London, as well as meet with the developers to ensure that they understand the objections of the community.

“I will also be ensuring that the Mayor of London is aware of the communities views towards these proposals.”

The developers of the tower block, Taylor Wimpey, are currently in the process of conducting a review into the plans.
