Planning Application: 15 Oakleigh Park North

Following the withdrawal last January of their original planning application to demolish the family home at 15 Oakleigh Park North and build a block of seven flats, Mr A Gershfield and Mrs V Mawhinney submitted a second application (B/03734/08) on October 7th that proposes:

Demolition of existing house and redevelopment of site with part single, part two and part three storey block plus rooms in roofspace comprising of 7 No. flats with 12 car parking spaces at rear, associated landscaping, bin store and cycle store.

If you have not received a notice letter from Barnet Planning, you can download a copy here, which includes a guide to raising objections. (This is a PDF document that requires Adobe Reader to open and read it.) The planning application can also be viewed online: Just click on the Barnet Planning Applications link in the right-hand column of this page and search for planning application B/03734/08 or 15 Oakleigh Park North.

The main difference between the previous application and the new one is that the new application is for a block of flats three storeys high rather than the four storeys originally proposed.

From my conversations with neighbours, I am aware that there is a general concern that if this development is allowed to proceed it will set a precedent for replacing homes on the Oakleigh Park estate with blocks of flats that will irrevocably change the character of the area.

If you wish to object to this planning application, please be aware that you only have until 12th November.

I shall be obtaining a copy of the plans and drawing up a list of possible objections which will be available on this web site within a few days. Meanwhile, please contact me if you have any questions or useful information.

Also, please discuss this matter with your immediate neighbours. If they haven't already subscribed to the OPRA E-Mail List to receive notifications about new posts to this web site, please urge them to subscribe by completing the form in the right-hand column of this page.
