Haringey Council responds to further flood of Broadwater Farm Area objections as Public Inquiry is planned for the late summer or autumn

Council respond to objectors    Haringey Council planners have at last published their official response to the hundreds of local people who objected earlier this year to their ‘red-zone’ proposals threatening the ‘Broadwater Farm Area’ homes and facilities with potential future demolitions and ‘redevelopment’. Many members of the Friends of Lordship Rec live in the affected area and so we are actively supporting the campaign. [See our bwflordship drop-down pages]. In fact the Council has refused to address most of the concerns and points raised by local people, either making vague official general responses or shockingly just not responding at all.

A Public Inquiry is planned   The Government has recently appointed a Planning Inspector to hold a Public Inquiry into the Council’s borough-wide Draft Haringey Local Plan, to decide if the proposals are ‘sound’ or should be rejected. The Inquiry is expected to last some weeks at the end of August or beginning of September at the Civic Centre, and objectors will have the right to put their case. The Broadwater Farm Area proposal (SA62) is probably the most contentious (it certainly has had more objections than any other) of all the Council’s proposals to sell off public land and public assets, and to promote demolitions and ‘redevelopment’ in many parts of the borough. Following a massive number of objections in 2015, the incredible original threat to build houses on a third of Lordship Rec was dropped – but the campaign to save local homes continues.

“New Leaf” Composting Workshop

Haringey New Leaf Composting Session

 Free event on Saturday, July 23 2016 11:00 am – 2:00 pm at the Hub, Lordship Recreation Ground, N17 6NU

Always wondered how to make your own compost heap at home? Have one and want to make the most of it? This beginners workshop in Haringey is going to give you the A-Z of home composting from tricks and tips on getting started to building your own composter.
This composting class is being run as part of our New Leaf project, which focuses on fresh foods which we often waste in the summertime. Producing, transporting and packaging this food takes a lot of energy, fuel and water, so we want to help north London residents reduce food waste and save money as well! The summer is also a great time to get outdoors and transform unavoidable food waste into rich nutritious compost.
