Darren Johnson Condemn's Boris Johnson's Brent Cross Rubberstamp

The decision by the Mayor of London not to refuse planning permission for the controversial Brent Cross Cricklewood development has been condemned by Darren Johnson, Green Party London Assembly. Darren has previously lobbied Barnet Council, the Mayor of London and the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government to improve or reject the proposed development.

Darren Johnson said:

"The Mayor has rubberstamped a proposal that will increase traffic and pollution across the whole of North West London. The Mayor has ignored the views of residents and councillors in the neighbouring boroughs of Brent and Camden, who never got a say in the consultation.

“There are better ways to spend £4.8bn if we want to revitalise this town centre. Londoners want less traffic, good local shops and more affordable homes, but the Mayor has rubberstamped a development that will bring the exact opposite to the area: another 29,000 cars, a threat to other neighbourhood shopping areas and one of the lowest affordable homes targets in London.”
