Planning alert- new plans for social housing of Monument Way

Plans to provide much needed new social housing in Tottenham could mean the loss of the green lung between Monument Way and Fairbanks Road.

Newlon Housing Trust is holding a two-day public consultation on plans to build up to 54 flats in three blocks in the affected area. That would mean changes in the layout of Fairbanks Road itself, and the wall which currently separates the neighbouring Chesnut Estate and Monument Way will be knocked down to be replaced by what the organisers are saying a buffer zone.

Residents in the affected area should have received the leaflet with brief details of the plans.

The consultation will take place on both Wednesday 15th and Thursday 16th March at The Larder Cafe, Protheroe House, 6 Chesnut Road N17. It will run on both days between 4pm and 7pm.

Hale Village development update

anthologytottenhamhalePlans to erect a mixed use development on the site of the failed former tower block is being put forward for Hale Village.

Developers Anthology owns the site, in Ferry Lane, just past Tottenham Hale station, and are holding a public consultation about the plans, in which local residents can get their ideas on how the new place should look.

The original plans were for an 18-story residential tower block, but nothing else happened. The fear is that on top of the (thankfully refused) Hale Wharf development, the immediate area, like most of Tottenham, will become even more overcrowded.

Whether you live in Hale Village or if you are just concerned about this latest development proposal, you can go the consultation, which takes place at:

Unit 3B Ground Floor, Emily Bowes Court, Lebus Street N17 9FD (off Ferry Lane, next to ‘the gym‘, nearest buses 41, 123, 230 and W4) on the following dates:

  • Wednesday 7th December 5pm-9pm
  • Saturday 10th December 11am-3pm

If you are unable to attend, there is a website AnthologyTottenhamHale.London, where you can see the plans.

Development update: public meeting

developletterHaringey Council’s Development Management Forum is holding a forthcoming meeting about some of the latest developments in the Tottenham Hale area.

The areas under discussion are:

  • Station Square West (adjacent to Premier Inn): 22-storey tower block, plus including retail units
  • Ashley Road South (Cannon factory, plus Ashley House): 277 flats including retail units

This is very important as it could be local residents’ only chance to question both the council and developers’ representatives about the latest proposals.

The meeting will be held at The Larder, under the new Protheroe House, 6 Chesnut Road, N17 9EQ, on Wednesday 23rd November, starting at 7.00pm.

EU Referendum event- Tomorrow!

eu-flagOn June 15th, there will be a public meeting on the upcoming European Union referendum, in which voters can meet representatives of the groups campaigning on whether they want the United Kingdom to either remain or leave the organisation.

Locals can hear the opinions of six speakers, three from groups supporting the UK remain in the EU, three from groups who want the UK to leave.

The referendum campaign has unfortunately been dominated by supporters on both sides allegedly spreading fear and innuendo, leaving many voters confused. As a result, very few people know how the structure of the EU actually works. At the same time, the EU is reported in the UK press in almost entirely negative terms, leading to the perception that people in the UK are being poorly informed. If people made some effort to search for the facts about the EU, there wouldn’t be so much mudslinging. Here is the link to the EU’s website.

The meeting will be held at the Selby Centre between 7pm and 9pm (doors open at 6.30). For more information on the meeting, click on this page on the Selby Trust’s website.

The EU referendum is on June 23rd. Use your vote wisely.

 

Future of council homes meeting

Controversial plans by Haringey Council to sell off some or all of directly-managed social homes will the subject to a public meeting organised by  Haringey Defend Council Housing.

The council has, in line with others up and down the country, have a policy of either part or wholly sell off their properties in order to raise much-needed funds for repairs. Successive recent national governments have reduced the amount of funds spent on social housing.

One might argue why Haringey has taken so long to go down this route as other councils have forged ahead to bring their homes to a decent standard. However, DCH, and many tenants and leaseholders, fear that a much wider plan of social cleansing is being enacted.

If you live on some of the council estates in Tottenham affected by the sell-offs, you should have received this letter through your door.

The public meeting about the housing sell-offs takes place this Thursday (10th April) at the North London Community House, 22 Moorefield Road (Off St Loys Road) N17, commencing at 7.30pm.
