Keep Fortis Green

NOTE TO SIGNATORIES: 

PLEASE PUT YOUR ADDRESS IN THE COMMENTS BOX 


We object to the amended planning application for 3 further houses at 85 Woodside Ave (HGY/2010/1887) on the grounds that it fails to address the objections raised by the local community.

Specifically: 

1. The overall footprint has only been very marginally reduced with a height reduction of just 60 cm. The development therefore still does not meet the Council's criteria for development on Significant Local Open Land (SLOL) and represents an unacceptable over-development of the site. The impact on the quality of the SLOL would be negative and severe. 

2. The site remains suitable for employment use and so this objection also remains. There was no sustained marketing campaign over 18 months (as required under Council rules) to justify the change of use from commercial to residential use.

3. The amended proposal would turn the pedestrian alleyway into a road, with adverse effects on the safety of children and pedestrians and the quality of the open space. The footpath is not wide enough to accommodate a pavement of sufficient width plus space for two cars to pass.

4. The development would be visually intrusive, obscuring public views across to Highgate Woods, and tower above the allotments.  The effect on the privacy and outlook of neighbouring residents would also be severe irrespective of the revised plans.
