In your June newsletter, re The Spires, you say 'No-one disputes that the rebuilding undertaken by the previous owners has been a failure and the centre is now something of a mess.' I'm curious what this rebuilding was, and why, in your opinion, it's an undisputed mess.

Happy Bank Holiday Monday to all our followers #highbarnet #relax #enjoy
The Government has announced that from 1st August, a Permitted Development Right will be introduced to allow the conversion of most retail, business, and commercial premises to residential use without needing planning consent.  This will apply to all locations including town centres and Conservation Areas excluding listed buildings. There was widespread hostility to the Governments consultation on the proposed changes, including a submission from ourselves, but all the concerns expressed have been ignored. If conversions happen in any number in our primary retail areas, we fear this could threaten the economic viability of the town centre.  #barnet #development #planning #housing #towncentres #highbarnet #chippingbarnet #economy @mhclg @barnetcouncil
