PUBLIC INQUIRY INTO BRENT CROSS ESSENTIAL
Tim Storer of Brent Green Party joined members of the Brent Cross Coalition, including Navin Shah AM and Sarah Teather MP, to hand in letters to John Denham demanding a Public Inquiry into the Brent Cross Development.
Lia Colacicco, Co-ordinator, of the Coalition for a Sustainable Brent Cross Cricklewood Plan said:
“The case for a public inquiry into these disastrous and damaging plans is overwhelming. We are confident that the Minister will exercise sound judgement and work in the best public interest.
The Brent Cross plans clearly meet the criteria for a call-in – they affect vast swathes of north-west London. Brent and Camden have already formally rejected the scheme. It will cause congestion, pollution and is unsustainable in terms of transport, housing and the environment.
Five thousand local residents have now signed petitions and letters calling for a public inquiry. We urge John Denham to call it in immediately so it can undergo the full public scrutiny deserved.”
