The Highgate Neighbourhood Plan, prepared by local people and backed by the local councils of Haringey and Camden, has received the approval of the official examiner. This means it will go to a referendum of Highgate residents to be held on June 29.
The Plan has a specific section on the Highgate Bowl which should provide it with more protection as open land. The wording states ‘development offers the opportunity to secure the area as open space’. While the plan envisages some development within the yards which adjoin the Bowl, it makes clear that any proposal must ensure that the open character of the Bowl is maintained’.
This provides more protection than we currently enjoy and it is important that as many people as possible vote in favour of the plan on June 29th. Full details on http://www.forhighgate.org
