RESIDENTS are being urged to ignore a 'bogus' newsletter attempting to influence the outcome of a consultation to make part of Northwood a Conservation Area.
Hillingdon Council recommended the Copse Wood Estate be designated as a Conservation Area in 2006, to protect the character of the area, trees which do not already have preservation orders and much-loved buildings from demolition.
Despite initially getting a positive response during a public consultation, the council decided not to go ahead after receiving a number of 'standardised' letters from residents rejecting the idea.
But Northwood ward councillor, Scott Seaman-Digby, believes people could have been 'led astray' by an anonymous newsletter delivered to homes which was 'full of lies' about the impact of the Conservation Area.
