Harrow Borough Council apologises for delay over Barnet FC stadium at The Hive
Harrow Borough Council has apologised for the delayed decision over Barnet FC’s application for The Hive stadium.
The comment comes after the council’s planning committee had to postpone its decision on plans for the stadium last week.
Stephen Kelly, Harrow Council’s divisional director for planning, said: “Barnet FC’s application for a new stand and to increase the height of floodlights at the ground was deferred by the planning committee to allow officers to determine whether an environmental impact assessment is required.
“The council would like to apologise for the delay and is working hard to rectify this so we can proceed with this application as soon as possible.
“The delay in processing the application will not affect the commitment of the Council to resolving the outstanding issues at this site.”
Officers had recommended the committee refuse the plans due to lack of information from the applicant, Barnet FC, about the impact of light from the new higher floodlights.
Councillors were later informed the recommendation would change to deferral, but by the time of the meeting last night the committee was again told to refuse the application.
