A model of Wood Green proposed developments

As PMRA raises grave concerns with a first stage letter on Haringey’s Area Action Plan, residents from across our area, including Hornsey Park, Sky City, Caxton & Mayes Road and Tower Terrace met Beth Kay, Head of Regeneration and Emma Williamson, Assistant Director – Planning Services to object to ill thought out proposals for wholesale demolition and redevelopment and an accompanying lack of environmental aspiration and means to convert unfeasible levels of building density and height into acceptable development.
