Wonder if this will just become another anti-development shouting match like the preposterous "Civic Voice" nonsense.... only interested in representing the views of those that agree with their anti development stance.

To be absolutely clear, Civic Voice is the national body for civic societies. The Civic Voice team at the Southgate community workshop were completely independent facilitators and had no views on the development. The facilitators do not live in London, so all views expressed were those of the people who attended.

The workshop was intended to allow the people of Southgate an opportunity to express their views on the development, both for and against. If the developers had properly consulted and listened, we would not have needed a workshop or this planning panel.

Weird.... claims to be independent but only crops up to corral negative sentiment and I'm pretty sure my feedback (when there were options to leave it) never got remotely noted.

What are you actually looking to achieve here? Given anyone can make reps to the Council in respect of the planning application? And that you do not canvass or survey "the people of Southgate" as a whole, just take the views of those with a grievance that come find you?
