Our next meeting: Do you care about the environment and your local community? Our April Outreach meeting will discuss our parks and open spaces, potholes and pavements, libraries, and communicating with the Council.
There has been a spate of accidents near Manorside School. A campaign has been launched by parents of children who attend the school, requesting Barnet Council to implement traffic calming measures. The Society supports the campaign. 2000 signatures are needed by March 15th for the Council to consider the petition.
Our March meeting: Planning has always been important to the Society and its members. On 31 March members of our Planning Committee shared what they know and tried to answer questions from the audience about planning in Barnet.
Barnet Council is consulting on a strategy for our Parks and Open Spaces. Their document makes clear spending on parks must be reduced and gives six options for managing and funding the parks. Our Environment Committee is preparing a response but you can respond individually as well. The consultation ends 13 March.
Footpaths Project: We have launched a project to catalogue the footpaths in Finchley and Whetstone. Ultimately, we want to compile a directory of all these footpaths. But to begin with we need your help to identify each of them.
