    In Parliament on Monday, Conservatives - including Finchley's MP Mike Freer - voted to suspend the triple lock, a rule that means that state pensions must rise in line with whichever is highest of inflation, average earnings or 2.5%.

    Barnet Liberal Democrats have attacked the decision to delay a decision on the Markaz in Golders Green as discriminatory, illiberal and unjust.

    Local Conservatives pushed through the delay last night (19 July) in a surprise move at Barnet Council's Strategic Planning Committee.

  • Natwest building, 48 Ballards Lane, Finchley
    Petition: Mar 5, 2021

    Barnet Liberal Democrats are calling for an urgent overhaul of local planning rules after Barnet Council failed to stop a casino from winning planning permission to open in the heart of Finchley Central.

    Some 617 residents wrote to object to the 'Cashino' being built in the old NatWest building at 48 Ballards Lane. Despite being rejected by Barnet's Planning Committee, the Cashino has won the go-ahead after a successful appeal to the Planning Inspectorate.
