Brunswick Park Councillors have welcomed the Planning Inspector’s decision to dismiss the current proposal to expand the North London Business Park Development.

Developer Comer already has permission to develop 1,350 homes on the site, but has asked for permission to deliver more than 1,000 additional homes, some in 12-storey towers.

Permission for extending the development was turned down by Barnet Council’s Planning Committee, but the developer then appealed nationally. Such an appeal is considered by an Inspector appointed by the Secretary of State for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities.

Labour Councillors for Brunswick Park, Paul Lemon, Giulia Monasterio, and Tony Vourou, have represented local residents’ concerns throughout, including at the Inspector’s Inquiry. Cllr Lemon told the enquiry that local residents were worried about the height and density of the towers, traffic and the impact on local amenities.

Cllr Lemon said: “I want to thank the Inspector for coming to what was the right decision. We will continue to ensure residents’ voices are heard as the North London Business Park site is developed according to the original application.”
