    A planning application for Chumleigh Lodge Hotel, Nether Street, Finchley to be converted into a House of Multiple Occupancy (HMO) with 19 rooms and up to 32 residents has met strong opposition from local residents. The existing hotel owners have proposed the conversion to begin in the first half of this year and argue that the development has the benefit of not removing existing residential housing stock.

    Petition: Jan 3, 2022

    Barnet Liberal Democrats are calling for a complete rethink of planned changes to the 143 bus route.

    Transport for London is planning to reroute the 143 bus so that it no longer goes through Highgate Village. It's a plan which benefits no one -- it's all about cutting costs to deal with the hole in TfL's finances.

    The A1000 Cycle Lane must be kept for good, and should be properly funded, Barnet Lib Dems say today, as they bring a motion to Full Council in its support.

    The group will use a motion amendment to force a simple "yes/no" vote on the future of the A1000 Cycle Lane, to encourage local councillors to get off the fence on the issue.

    The Conservatives decision to suspend the "pensions triple lock" will impact 16,364 state pensioners in Finchley and Golders Green this winter, new figures from the Liberal Democrats show.

    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.

    The committee was considering whether to allow a change of use for the Hippodrome, Golders Green, from 'church' to 'place of worship', a decision which has already taken more than a year to reach committee stage.

    Jonathan Davies sadly passed away after a serious illness lasting over one year. He was tragically only in his 50s.

    Susette and I have known him as a friend and colleague for what seems a lifetime and is certainly very many years.

    His work in the Liberal Democrats is legendary, and I doubt that we can, at this stage, do full justice to all his work:

    We are deeply saddened to announce the death of Jonathan Davies, our friend and colleague, a devoted Liberal Democrat who held many roles within our local party and nationally.

    A full tribute will be published here shortly.
