Stop the development of land by Northwood Station by TfL

    1. Petition by

      Save Our Northwood

Transport for London's outline plans involve demolishing an entire block: all of the buildings along Green Lane from Central Way to Coral and down Station Approach. 17 businesses will lose their premises and 12 tenants their flats, all without compensation or alternative premises being found. The 17 businesses employ some 150 people, all of whom would lose their livelihoods, impacting their families and the wider community.

Transport for London plans to build a 47,000 sq. ft. Sainsbury supermarket, up to 167 housing units and 3 car parks. The Sainsbury supermarket will have a sales floor of approx. 35,000 sq. ft. and result in approx. 15,000 extra car journeys through Northwood per week, as well as delivery vehicles outside trading hours.

This proposal risks changing the character of Northwood forever. Please support our petition to block these redevelopment plans.

      Dear Petitioner,

      Thank you for your email about the proposed redevelopment of Transport for London’s (TfL’s) land and buildings close to Northwood Tube station.

      TfL regularly reviews its property portfolio to ensure its land is us...

      Doesn’t really say much, certainly not much to suggest there will be much sympathy. It looks very much like TfL wrote it rather than Boris.

      My god, stop this now. Northwood is a quaint peaceful town, please don't make it into a nightmare to live in. Save the small businesses and the homes of people who live here. There is one road into and out of Northwood, there absolutely horrifying plans will destroy our beautiful Northwood.

      We don't need this. Bad enough it is no longer a village atmosphere; this would make it even worse.

      I am a local to Northwood. The traffic that already passes through Northwood because of schools and general local traffic is very high. During peak times there is always traffic jams, sometimes adding 30 minutes to a 10 minute journey. We do not need a huge supermaket, we already have an average sized one and a few local smaller shops that offer groceries. There are larger supermarkets already available within the local vacinity (Pinner, Pinner Green etc)

      Don't want to see the character of Northwood altered - development of this scale is completely unwarranted & risks further developers following.
