Cockfosters is a semi-rural, outer-London suburb, bordering the historically and ecologically significant Trent Country Park; its Grade II listed Tube station is directly adjacent to the Green Belt.

The current London Borough of Enfield Local Plan, which the Borough’s planners should follow, provides very clear guidance on areas inappropriate for tall buildings. e.g. adjacent to the Green Belt, adjacent to conservation areas, a presumption against tall buildings in sensitive areas, locations where development would infringe or detract from local views, etc.

TfL’s ‘community consultation’ was shameful. 😠

96.6% of 522 people we surveyed said TfL did not consult with them. 😠

AN OPEN LETTER to the Mayor of London regarding TfL’s failure to carry out its Public Sector Equality Duty in relation to its policy of closing station car parks:

Dear Mr Khan,

TfL made an important policy decision when it decided to close outer London station car parks and, as such, the decision should have been subject to full public consultation.

In fact they did not carry out any consultation.

TfL’s decision to close many of London’s station car parks would clearly have far reaching consequences and these would need to be examined under the Equality Act 2010. It embodied an important policy decision and was not simply for TfL’s staff to decide amongst themselves.

TfL have a duty to have regard to how their policy relating to removing station car parks would affect those with protected characteristics. TfL failed in its Public Sector Equality Duty.

Please find our report attached and also published on our website:

We would like to know why TfL didn’t carry out a full public consultation on the closure of TfL’s car parks forever?

Yours sincerely,

The Save Cockfosters team

Is it okay for #TfL to use the #bailout to fund its property development projects?

TfL have told us that they intend to press ahead with building on station car parks, despite their dire financial situation.

So, does that mean that, effectively, any government bailout they get will be funding these highly risky developments?

❌ Most of the income will go to the majority shareholders who are PRIVATE developers

❌They are planning to build on well-used, well-needed car parks (Cockfosters brings in £600K per annum for TfL)

❌Given the current economic climate these developments are extremely high risk

Is this okay?
