North London Waste Disposal Plan amended to reduce the risk of new facilities in Enfield. The areas at Enfield may be sufficiently insulated from the danger of new garbage management facilities following modifications to the 15-year garbage management program.
Changes to the North London Waste Management Plan (NLWP) by the state planning inspector mean developers will need to consider other areas when considering “priority sites” for new waste disposal sites before considering Enfield. It is intended to the better geographic distribution of waste in north London, with Enfield already hosting 62% of land for waste management, including an incinerator in Edmonton. The modification of the plan also protects Pinkham Way, a section in the north of Haringey bordering Enfield. Its inclusion as a suitable site for a new recycling facility has attracted strong opposition from residents due to its status as an essential conservation site and its proximity to Metropolitan Open Land.
The NLWP strives to supply good trash-managing areas in 7 London boroughs – Barnet, Camden, Enfield, Hackney, Haringey, Islington, and Waltham Forest – by 2036. Eley’s Estate in Edmonton is recorded in the plan as a preferred location for garbage control. Still, certain areas will not necessarily be built on, and planning permission will be required for any new developments. The amended plan was presented at a cabinet meeting at the Enfield Civic Center. Council leader Necil Caliscan told the conference that she believes the program provides “the best protection for the area from any unplanned allocation of seats. Not getting the plan would put the place in danger as it has enormous quantities of strategic industrial land that could otherwise be utilized as demolition areas. If they still needed a program recognizing possible sites, then any person could choose to use it for planning and ask the Secretary of State to sign a building right in the center of Meridian Water, for instance.
The Pinkham Way Alliance campaign company said at a cabinet appointment in Haringey that they were “satisfied with the modifications” and suggested the plan be assumed. After deliberation, cabinet members agreed to the changes made by the planning inspector and referred the NLWP to the full board meeting for formal adoption. Still, using the help of such recycling companies as City Junk & Gardening can help reduce waste in different areas.
