Shop on union street! NOT at 'Blot on Landscape'
Really! I have to say I'm gobsmacked at your support to convert this piece of history into yet more residential!
We have enough parking problems in barnet without adding to the problem.
The question must be asked, why doesnt the existing owner try to lease the shop and allow a new tenant to renovate it?
Why has he kept it empty for 3 years?
Why has barnet council not served notice for him to carry out external work to the property?
It begs the question: is this just another property developer biding their time in the hope they can make a tidy profit by making yet another new home.
And i feel, as im sure many others do, The Barnet Society should not be supporting private developers.
