Saved from Network Rails scythes (for the moment)
A Hoppers Road resident received this letter this morning, advising that in 3 days time Network Rail will once again start removing the vegetation in the area they refer to as Winchmore Hill '6mp to 8mp'. In sending out the letter on a Friday, with the work due to start on Monday, Network Rail is deliberately giving little time for residents to discover the exact nature of the work or raise any objections.
David Burrowes, WH councillors and the Council have been alerted. David Burrowes says "I have spoken to the Chief Executive's office today and made my/our dissatisfaction clear and await a response today. I have demanded a deferral of the works pending proper consultation".

UPDATE FROM DAVID BURROWES "I have just received a message from the Managing Director of Network Rail that following my representations the planned works for Monday have now been stopped. He accepts the late notice and apologises for the proper notification procedures not being applied"
