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.

We will be tidying up the little garden around the Downhills Shelter Memorial near the woodland and also doing some work in the woodland clearing paths of vegetation and creating sight lines through the bushes along the main path.
Hope you can make it. Bring your own gloves and secateurs if you have them but some will be available if not.
Please pledge generously to the Hub’s Spacehive crowdfunding campaign, to enable a much needed roof to be put on all the outside terraces of the building to extend its usefulness to park users.
26 people have so far pledged over 1000 but we need nearly 14000 by August 1st. Together we can do it!
Pledge to: www.spacehive.com/lordshiphub
Do it today! Or if you dont want to donate through the internet hand a donation direct to Hub staff and it will then be pledged to Spacehive.
