The Association and many residents have received notice of a new outline planning application HYG/2009/0503 for the redevelopment of land around the new spine road, between Hornsey Park Road and the railway. The application is for demolition of the gas holders, one of which is scheduled for local listing and protection. If successful, redevelopment will include residential led, mixed use with up to 1080 dwellings, up to 1400sqm of offices and business premises, restaurant and cafe type uses of up to 550sqm and up to 550sqm of community or leisure use + parking for 250 cars and roads and facilities for service vehicles. It also purport to provide public and private open space.
Read more about the application at the council's planning website http://www.planningservices.haringey.gov.uk/portal/servlets/ApplicationSearchServlet or attend the planning forum on 25th may 2011 at Heartlands High School, off Western Road, Wood Green Common, at 7pm.
The Assocoation will again be making representations, considering the application at its next general meeting and joining up with our neighbouring associations to ensure a development of the highest standards is presented and suitable planning conditions applied. It will also be calling on the council to consider the application in conjuction with the pending application for the development of the Coronation Sidings, a development that will have a significant impact on the East Heartlands.

Life on Hornsey Park Road has been plagued with problems including noise, pollution and crumbling pavements, on top of this there appears to be a lack of strategic vision for the future. Council Leader Peray Ahmet and a few of her fellow councillors came to discuss the issues with our representatives.
Eight of us got out before the rain last Saturday. We cut back a lot of growth at the Lavender Garden ready for winter. Most of what we cleared has now gone down for composting. By John Miles
The loss of trees is becoming an issue locally. The wonderful false acacia at the junction of Mayes Road and Coburg Road was removed because it ‘had a fungus’ - just in time for the planning application to build on the petrol station site beside it.
