Planning Application: 65-67 Oakleigh Park South

Planning Application B/03174/10 has been submitted to convert the 5 bedroom family home at number 65-67 Oakleigh Park South into 5 flats with 20 beds and only 5 car parking spaces. (Previous application B/01287/10 submitted last April was withdrawn.) This is one property, not two. Number 65 is the main residence and number 67 is a granny flat on the side.

There are two main reasons why you may wish to object:

1. Because if this application is granted it will change the character of the Oaklegh Park estate and set a precedent for further flat conversions.

2. Because just 5 parking spaces for up to 20 residents is woefully inadequate particularly on a stretch of road that is already made dangerously narrow by having commuters' cars parked outside.

Objections must be submitted to Barnet Planning by 9th September and you will shortly receive a flyer by post about this development together with a letter of objection that you may wish to use.
