Lordship Rec – the full regeneration plans!

The Lordship Recreation Ground regeneration scheme has been submitted to Haringey Council’s planning department for approval. Getting such an approval is an essential precondition for receiving the funding needed from the Heritage Lottery Fund.

If you wish to look through all the key documents (and there are LOTS! – see * below), the application number is HGY/2010/0471, and you can click on the link below:
