Oppose the proposed development around Finchley Central Station

Sign our petition here - http://chng.it/mxVJ4LQdZm

Transport for London plans to build hundreds of new homes jammed into high-rise and large linear blocks packed in and around Finchley Central Station. This will have an unacceptably harmful impact on our surroundings, overwhelm local services and generate overspill parking that makes our streets even more congested. The site is too small for decent housing at the density they propose. We know London needs more housing - but we also know it can be done without ruining Finchley.

We are a local group opposed to this development that fails to meet local needs, obliterates local character and undermines community cohesion.

    Residents Feedback

    The proposed development is monstrous and totally out of character with the local surroundings. It will ruin the character of Finchley Central as we know it.

    Paul B - Finchley Central

    Scheme hardly acceptable in a city centre, but in a traditional London suburb it is grossly out of place and will cause massive inconvenience and loss of privacy.

    “The proposed development is too big and out of scale. It will overlook our back garden, casting shadow on us and we will suffer loss of our privacy and natural light, removing trees, outlook and amenity.

    M & H R - Finchley Central

    While I understand the need for new housing in the London area, the scale of this development is unreasonable. Whatever short-term problems it may solve, it is surely only creating far greater problems for the future.

    Ciaran B - Finchley Central

    Inflicting this Godzilla-like development, overcrowded both by site and the numbers of people to be crammed into it, is grossly insensitive to the area and all local residents. It drives a coach and horses through Council planning guidelines, and will create all sorts of congestion problems: residential, on our roads, and in the station area itself. It will also put intolerable pressure on already overstretched local facilities, from emergency services and GP's, to schools and hospitals. Kill it! Stone dead!
