Mill Hill eruv to be constructed 'within six months'

By Robyn Rosen, July 8, 2010

Construction of a Mill Hill eruv will begin "within six months" after the project was given the green light by Barnet Council.

On Tuesday, Barnet's planning committee voted in favour of the application for 24 poles which would link up with the existing Edgware and Golders Green eruvs. Councillors requested a wildlife survey at Sheepwash Pond, part of the eruv area, and that the colour of the poles be green, rather than black.

The council has received 400 letters in support of the project and 24 objections.

St John's Wood residents have voiced opposition to a planned eruv and its potential consequences for local diversity at a church meeting organised by a religious leaders' group.

The North Westminster Eruv committee plans to submit an application to Westminster Council at the end of the summer for the erection of 38 poles extending to Boundary Road in the north, Avenue Road in the east, Regent's Canal in the south and Shirland Road in the west.

Borehamwood eruv will not be ready for summer

By Jay Grenby, June 24, 2010

Hertsmere planners have dashed hopes that the Elstree and Borehamwood eruv would be operational in time for the summer.

The council's planning department has decreed that retrospective consent must be obtained for the relocation of some of the final pole positions.

Eruv organisers say the changes are primarily to deal with obstacles such as underground utilities, trees, roots and wire clearances, which could not have been anticipated in advance.
