As expected, the proposal to open a new betting shop in the Trios building in Green Lanes, on one side of the Triangle, has met with opposition.  The Green Lanes Business Association (GLBA) has reacted by organising a demonstration to be held at Palmers Green Triangle between 1.30 and 2.30 on Friday 19th April, and is expecting attendance by local MP David Burrowes and local councillors.  GLBA are asking all local residents who are opposed to the new betting shop to attend if able.

Opposition to the application was voiced by members of the public at the regular Area Forum meeting held on 16th April.  In response, local councillors pointed out that under current legislation councils have very little scope for refusing such applications.  Both the Labour and Conservative groups on Enfield Council are dissatisfied with this and are considering lobbying the government for changes to planning law.

As reported previously, any objections to the application must be submitted in writing by 23rd April.
