'No decision' on Pinkham Way land future

The North London Waste Authority (NLWA) has yet to make a decision on any future plans for the site it part-owns in Barnet, where plans for a controversial waste incineration plant were shelved last year.

An NLWA spokesperson told MRW that “no decision was made” at the organisation’s annual meeting and that the body is still “considering its position” on how to use the land at Pinkham Way, which was bought from Barnet Council - which owns the other half.

The next NWLA meeting is scheduled for September, but there is no deadline in place to make a decision on the future of the Pinkham Way site.

NLWA postponed the Pinkham Way project last year in the face of a fierce and sustained campaign from local residents and community groups.

Announcing the cancellation of the project, NLWA said that it would instead seek “a less expensive solution to waste management for north London taxpayers”.

Meanwhile, NLWA is looking for new sites that could be used to develop waste management in the area.

In a statement NLWA said: “We are inviting industry, landowners and any other interested parties to nominate sites or areas to be considered for waste development in North London.

“The sites or areas suggested can be either existing locations currently used for a waste management purposes which may be suitable for future expansion, or sites or areas with a future potential waste management use.”

The deadline for nominations to be received is 4 July.
