Get ready for Sim City Wood Green

Mayes Road Housing and Shopping proposal

Mayes Road Housing and Shopping proposal

Not for decades have Wood Green residents faced the dismantling of communities, wholesale rebuilding and the complete reconfiguration of the town centre. The last gas holder is coming, and new housing, shopping areas, roads and traffic schemes are on the drawing boards and will eventually be placed right in the midst of the areas we have almost gotten used to. As Haringey council announces plans for its very own own Sim City, a flood of consultations, questionnaires, brochures and the like is dropping through our letter boxes. How to keep up with it all? We will try to makes sense of it by highlighting development proposals and what they may mean to us and how you can become involved: so, watch this space!
