Haringey and Barnet residents opposing the proposed rubbish processing development at Pinkham Way turned up in force at the Barnet council meeting on 12 April.

They kept up chanting outside the meeting until late on, and were angry that the Conservative councillors turned down a proposal to take the Pinkham Way business early in the meeting. Councillor Brian Gordon added insult to injury by calling the protesters “rabble”.

Barnet is saying that it is up to Haringey council what will happen at Pinkham Way, but they back the plan. Find out more about the issues and the Pinkham Way Alliance on their website here.

Barnet MP Theresa Villiers is reported today in the Evening Standard to be worried about the plans.
