North London Waste Plan consultation affecting Enfield and Hairngey launched
A consultation about the future of how rubbish and recycling is dealt with in Enfield and Haringey has been launched.
The new North London Waste Plan, which covers seven north London Boroughs, is due to be signed in May 2014.
The original plan was drafted by Barnet, Camden, Enfield, Hackney, Haringey, Islington and Waltham Forest councils but thrown out after campaign group the Pinkham Way Alliance, and Liberal Democrat campaigners demonstrated against it.
They argued that the first plan failed to comply with the law and that the consultation was flawed.
Lynne Featherstone, the MP for Hornsey and Wood Green, has vowed to continue to fight against the waste plan and any proposals for a processing plant or lorry depot at Pinkham Way, off the North Circular road in Southgate.
She said: “Last year, we celebrated as plans to build a massive waste plant on the Pinkham Way site were thrown out.
“This was down to a huge campaigning effort by local residents, the Pinkham Way Alliance, and the local Lib Dems.
“But the battle goes on, and we need a similar effort to protect Pinkham Way from a new waste contract and development plan.”
