The Pinkham Way Alliance is urging supporters to sign an online petition calling for the removal of a local nature conservation site from the North London Waste Plan. The petition is addressed to Haringey Council, but residents of Barnet, Enfield and Haringey are all eligible to sign. To be effective, supporters need to sign by 12th November.
The land in question, now dense woodland, was the location of a long abandoned sewage works adjacent to the Pinkham Way section of the North Circular Road. Despite its nature conservation status, it is earmarked as a possible site for a waste treatment plant. Earlier this month the campaigners succeeded in persuading an important committee that the present dual classification of the land makes absolutely no sense.
Stephen Brice, chair of the Pinkham Way Alliance, has emailed supporters asking them to sign and to attend a key meeting on 13th November.
LET'S MAKE THIS A TURNING POINT!
In a landmark 6-5 vote, Haringey's Regulatory Committee chose to advise the Council to drop Pinkham Way nature conservation site from the North London Waste Plan (NLWP).
Let's make this a major turning point and get the site removed once and for all from a waste plan that should never have included it.
Please sign our online petition urging Haringey to accept the recommendation of its Regulatory Committee. The deadline is Monday 12 November.
All over 18s in your house hold can sign individually. Please persuade your local friends and neighbours to add their names - many of them do not receive these emails. For those not online, you could offer to input their details yourself.
This petition is hosted by campaign site 38 Degrees. Please forward the link out to as many of your relevant networks as you can (school parents, clubs, local business, etc):
SUPPORT US AT HARINGEY COUNCIL
The key Haringey Cabinet meeting is on Tuesday 13 November at 6.30pm.
Your magnificent support at the recent Regulatory Committee meeting helped us win the vote. Please keep this date free if you can - a strong PWA presence on the night will be essential.
Haringey Council has seen a big shake-up this year, and its new politicians have stressed that things are going to change for the better. Let's hold them to their word.
We'll be in touch again soon.
Chair, Pinkham Way Alliance
