As such the proposal would be contrary to Policies CS1 and CS5 of the LB Barnet: Core Strategy DPD (2012) and Policy DM01 of the LB Barnet Development Management Policies DPD (2012).

    2.    The proposed development does not include a formal undertaking to enable an amendment to the Traffic Regulation Order and contribution towards the associated monitoring costs to mitigate the on-street parking impact in the vicinity of the site, leading to increased kerbside parking and conditions detrimental to the free flow of traffic and highway and pedestrian safety, being contrary to Policies CS9 and CS15 of the Local Plan: Core Strategy (2012), Policy DM17 of the Local Plan: Development Management Policies (2012) and the Planning Obligations SPD (adopted April 2013)
