For the last fortnight our street-cleaner has, with great determination, been collecting and bagging them on his twice weekly visits. PMRA collected much of the early fall - lime-trees break down very well to make leaf-mould - and […]

Iceland - Who's behind the 'Icewall'?

Well, we are - the residents and community of Hornsey Park Road. This monstrous and ill conceived development far exceeds and drives a coach and horses through current planning policy.

While there are no longer any tower blocks in our area (Dylan Thomas House on Turnpike Lane was demolished nearly 20 years ago), many will have concerns about fire safety or have family or friends living in buildings that […]

But, he added ‘we now know it’s viable - we know it can be done’. Marcus explained how, as a result of the drastic work required to remediate the former […]
