Second meeting of Archway Road Residents’ Association. This meeting was exceptionally well attended – by politicians! One MP, two London Assembly members and a local councillor. The main discussion was about the Highgate Tube fence. There was a desire to see if there was room for any accommodation between the two polarised positions: the highest fence possible (from people living behind the Archway Road) or only a wire fence (from those living opposite the fence on the Archway Road).
My colleague Cllr Bob Hare will sound out the opposing views in the area over the next two weeks to see if there is a willingness to compromise around a reduced height fence with chicken wire on the higher part to retain the view. If there is – we will hold a public meeting to explore this further and see what we can do to make it happen.
