Consultation on Main Modifications to the North London Waste Plan 29th October to 10th December 2020

The North London Waste Plan (NLWP) is being examined by an independent Planning Inspector (Mr Stephen Normington) whose role is to assess whether the plan complies with the legal requirements and is sound. 

In response to the issues raised in the hearing sessions held in November 2019, the North London Boroughs have prepared a Schedule of Proposed Modifications to the NLWP. This document has been published for consultation along with a Sustainability Appraisal Addendum, Habitat Regulations Assessment and other supporting documents.  All of the documents can be found on the NLWP website.

The Inspector considers that the format of the Schedule of Proposed Modifications is suitable for public consultation purposes, however the modifications are put forward without prejudice to the Inspector’s final conclusions.

The consultation runs from 29th October to 10th December 2020.Representations received after 10th December 2020 cannot be accepted. 

The consultation is seeking views on the proposed Main Modifications. It is not an opportunity to raise matters that either were, or could have been, part of the earlier representations or hearings on the submitted plan. Comments should focus on whether the Main Modifications comply with the legal requirements and are considered sound.

Further guidance on making representations on the Main Modifications can be found in the Representation Form and Guidance Notes document.

Due to Covid-19 restrictions, paper copies of the documents are only available in some of the main planning offices and libraries of the boroughs.  Details are given in the Representation Form and Guidance Notes.  Our strong preference is for consultees to make use of the online version of documents if possible, however if you require hard copies of documents please request these by emailingfeedback@nlwp.net.

Please submit representations electronically using one of these methods:

·       Downloading a representation form from the website and sending the completed form to feedback@nlwp.net

·       Sending your representation in an email to feedback@nlwp.net

Alternatively, you can post your representation to North London Waste Plan, Planning and Regeneration, Camden Town Hall, Judd Street WC1H 9JE.

Tonight London moves to High Covid Alert

Coronavirus cases are rising in Islington, and across London.

From midnight tonight (Friday, 16 October), London will move to a higher Covid-19 alert level.

The new measures mean that we must not socialise with anybody outside of our household, or support bubble, in any indoor setting, at home or in a public place, including pubs and restaurants. We must also not gather in a group larger than six in any outdoor setting.

While we can continue to travel to places that are open, for work or education, we all need to try and reduce the number of journeys we make, and walk or cycle where possible.

This crisis has shown our borough in its best light. Islington people have been incredible at looking after each other during the pandemic, and we know residents will keep doing their bit to keep themselves and our community safe.

We know how hard things are for so many people and Islington Council is here to help, to keep our community safe and support local people when they need us most. That’s why we’re working alongside Islington’s amazing mutual aid groups and volunteers to make sure everyone is supported.

If you are struggling to cope, concerned about a friend or neighbour, or know someone who needs support, please call the We Are Islington helpline on 020 7527 8222 where we can assist with everything from getting food and medicine, to a friendly chat.

I have been so proud of our borough throughout this crisis but, unfortunately, there is more to do.

Above all we need to continue doing our bit, to keep ourselves and our community safe, and look out for each other through these incredibly difficult and challenging times.

Cllr Richard Watts
Leader of Islington Council

As London moves to high local Covid alert level, act to protect yourself, your friends and your family by:

  • Sticking with six outdoors – do not meet in groups of more than six people at any time outdoors, and try to limit the number of people you see socially over a short period. 
  • Reducing travel – where possible. 
  • Washing your hands – regularly and for at least 20 seconds.   
  • Wearing a face-covering – in public places, including in shops, on public transport and at the school gates.
