Edgware residents are concerned over the scale and impact of the proposed development on the Broadwalk Centre site put forward by Ballymore and TfL. While we welcome investment into Edgware, any development must be in keeping with the area and ensure adequate facilities and infrastructure, including parking, for both residents and existing local businesses.
The current proposed development of 4,000 homes, with some buildings planned to be 29 stories, is excessive and is not in the interests of Edgware. We therefore call on the Labour run Barnet Council and the Mayor of London Sadiq Khan to listen to the concerns of residents and ensure:
- A reduction in the size and scale of the residential development
- Similar levels of non-residential parking are retained for those using the shops and businesses in Edgware as well as decent levels of residential parking
- Development of adequate infrastructure and additional community services to support these new homes. This includes GP services, school places and other amenities that can accommodate this scheme
- Full consultation with all local residents on the revised proposals.
