Labour councillors will be raising the cost to Barnet Council of security at the ex-Dixon's site in Tilling Road, which waste management and skip company PB Donoghue is using for vehicle parking and skip storage free of charge.
Labour's Environment Spokesperson, Cllr Alan Schneiderman, has submitted a Member's Item to Tuesday night's Environment Committee (7 November) asking for a report on the PB Donoghue site.
He has asked the report to include results of the Environment Agency independent audit carried out 28 September, the use of a concrete crusher at the site and the options to relocate the skip company.
Residents have been campaigning for action to tackle dust pollution, noise and traffic problems arising from the Donoghue site in Claremont Road, and oppose the company having a nearby second site to operate from.
Labour's Environment Spokesperson, Cllr Alan Schneiderman said:
“Residents have had to put up with the disruption of dust, dirt and traffic from this site for far too long and now it appears the Council has allowed the operation of a concrete crusher without a permit. The whole operation needs to be moved to a more suitable location as soon as possible”.
Local campaigner Anne Clarke, who will be speaking at the meeting, said:
"It is outrageous that Barnet Council are paying for security in addition to Donoghue operating out of this site for free. There's no point in the community winning a victory over rejection of a second site when Donoghue just get it for free."
