PLEASE SUPPORT COMMUNITY #SOLAR POWER IN #HIGHGATE – PLANNING APPLICATION NEEDS SUPPORT
Posting up a message from Camden Green Councillor and newly elected GLA member Sian Berry:
“A planning application I fully support! The excellent Power Up North London group have teamed up with St Anne’s church to put solar panels on the south facing roof. This will generate clean energy for the church building and be a good investment for the rest of us too, bringing returns for community backers.
Camden’s planning officers are concerned about the views of the church from the Heath and the effect on the listed building, but the roof itself isn’t part of the architecture that led to the listing – this is the lovely spire and the stained glass windows – and the panels will blend in with the existing roof colour so the visual effect will be barely noticeable.
The planning application needs your support to get past these concerns – so please take a moment to add your views to Camden’s consultation, saying that the church’s appearance will be unspoiled and that you support the plans to bring clean, green energy to Highgate.
It only takes a few moments – click here to leave a comment – application number 2016/1791/P

(CONGRATULATIONS TO SIAN BERRY AND ISLINGTON’S CAROLINE RUSSELL FOR SUCCESS IN THE LONDON ASSEMBLY ELECTIONS!)
