15 OPN: Final Opportunity To Object

Barnet Planning's letter informing neighbours about planning application B/02592/09 to demolish 15 Oakleigh Park North and replace it with a block of flats said that objections must be received by 25th August.

However, Barnet Planning have placed a notice on the lamp post opposite 15 Oakleigh Park North which says: "Please send your comments in writing before 27 August. Replies received after 27 August may not be taken into account".

So if you have only just got back from holiday and have not yet had time to comment, please consider submitting an objection to arrive no later than 27 August, 2009.

To date Barnet Planning have acknowledged receipt of only 20 objections, which is no doubt due to so many neighbours being away on holiday. Even if you have objected, please consider asking your spouse to submit a separate objection.

For full details of the application and a sample objection letter, please refer to the post below this one dated Monday, 17 August.

15 OPN: Your Urgent Action is Requested

Objections to planning application B/02592/09, to demolish 15 Oakleigh Park North and replace it with a block of five apartments on four levels with basement parking, must be submitted by 25th August.

You'll recall that the last time these applicants applied, they did so over the Xmas holidays. This time they have applied when they know many likely objectors will be on holiday.

Please consider sending an email or letter to Planning Office Josleen Chug requesting her to consider an extension to the consultation period so that all those with an interest may make their views known. The more of us who make a request, the more likely it is to be granted.
