Campaign against the Brent Cross Cricklewood Proposals

July 6, 2009 by David Arditti

We have news that a public meeting will take place from 4-6 pm on Sunday 12th July at the Roman Catholic Church of St Mary and St Andrew, Dollis Hill Lane, NW2, entitled:

Safeguarding Brent's Residents: Campaign against the Brent Cross Cricklewood Development Proposals

It is being organised by Navin Shah, London Assembly Member for Brent & Harrow, and chaired by Cllr. Ann John. The meeting will deal with numerous strategic issues arising out of the development proposals, including the effects on transport, including cycling, in NW London.

Amongst a distinguished line of speakers, including Dawn Butler MP, will be Brent Cyclists coordinator Ben Tansley, who will be explaining why Brent and Barnet Cyclists are opposing the plans. Amongst many disastrous transport features of the proposals are changes to the A5 which will make it much harder to use that road to cycle from Brent and Barnet into central London, completely against the stated policy of the Mayor of London, who wants the A5 to be a high-priority "Cycle Highway".

If you care about the issues, please come along and support us. This is a major campaign across a large number of Brent and Barnet's community and environmental groups, with a huge groundswell of support. Brent, Camden and Harrow Councils are all opposing the plans, and the more support the campaign gets, the more chance we have of getting Barnet Council or the Mayor to reject them.
