Approved plans to build a new town in an area of London could result in 27,000 new jobs being created, it has been reported.
Barnet Council recently approved the £4.5 billion project, which will develop new school and homes, an article in the Harrow Observer noted.
According to the developers, almost £1 billion will go towards transport and infrastructure in the community and will lead to improvements in the environment.
However, the proposal has not been greeted with open arms by some members of the community who are concerned about the consequences of the implementation of the town.
Pauline McKinnell, chairwoman of Cricklewood Community Forum, told the newspaper: "Adding 7,500 new homes and 27,000 jobs will lead to complete gridlock."
"The concentration of new housing in such a small area is ludicrous," she added.
Last month, the BBC reported a potential 2,000 job opportunities had been lost following the government's decision to axe proposed plans to build a £14 billion defence training facility in Wales.
