SoN meets TfL

Nick Hurd MP convened today (25th February)a meeting in Parliament to discuss TfL plans for Northwood. Attendees included Graeme Craig Director of Commercial Development at TfL plus Tony Ellis, Chairman Northwood Residents’ Association, Cllr Carol Melvin and Cllr Scott Seaman-Digby of the Save our Northwood Campaign. Nick Hurd commented: The meeting was both frank and constructive. TfL were left in no doubt about the need to rebuild trust and engage with local businesses. They will be putting out a statement very shortly which will clarify their position and the next steps. There seemed to be a common desire to work together to find a better solution for Northwood and I welcome that.

DEVELOPMENT UPDATE - 18th January 2014

Earlier this week, My Northwood News asked Sainsbury's about their position following the letter from TfL to Nick Hurd. The response from Sainsbury's was as follows: Our plans have not been dropped and we will continue to work with TfL and the developer. This statement conflicts with the contents of TfL's letter so we have written to Nick Hurd and Graeme Craig (Commercial Director of TfL who wrote letter) for clarification. TfL are notoriously difficult and arrogant to deal with and the way they have treated their Northwood tenants is scandalous. Therefore, they have an enormous trust deficit with us that is going to take a very long time to overcome. In the meantime, the SON Committee remains sceptical about TfL's intentions and will remain so for the foreseeable future. We are waiting for Nick Hurd to arrange the meeting with Mr Craig when we hope to get a better understanding of TfL's plans for the site. We will keep you posted on developments as they happen. Tony Ellis, Chairman of Save Our Northwood
