Would you be interested joining in the work of the association or becoming a member of the committee? The only qualifications are you must be willing to to work together for the good of our neighbourhood and will need to be a resident of a road in our area.
The Parkside Malvern Residents Association (PMRA) was formed in 1999 and is the Registered Residents Association representing the residents of Hornsey Park Road, Alexandra Road, Malvern Road, Park Ridings, Ravenstone Road and The Avenue, N8.
The Association exists under a formal constitution, with a committee elected at its AGM. The committee in turn elects a Chair, Vice Chair, Treasurer and Secretary. Since August 2011, the committee comprises 4 members from Hornsey Park Road, 3 from Park Ridings, 3 from Alexandra Road and 1 member from each of Malvern Road, Ravenstone Road and The Avenue, broadly reflecting the number of residents across our area (see below). Since 2013, the committee has elected Co-chairs instead of Chair and Vice Chair, to reflect the diverse responsibilities of chairing the association. Our constitution affords all residents of our area automatic membership. There are also opportunities for membership of a sub-group of the committee or on a co-opted basis in areas of special interest.
Our report on the first Wood Green Summit, organised on Zoom by the Wood Green Business Improvement District. After the grandiosity of the Heartlands developments might Haringey be discovering a sense of proportion?
Last year, 2020, was one of the busiest in our organisation's history.
The redevelopment of Mayes Corner and our ongoing fight to make Hornsey Park Road a Living Street' have seen some successes but also setbacks.
So where do we go from here?
Things are coming together nicely at 'Mayes Corner ', phase 1 of our Mayes Road linear pocket park, the stepping stones path is now open but there’s much more to come.
If you live in Hornsey Park Road now’s the time to demand change. The street is often in poor repair and the pavements a disgrace. The figures from 2014 show 8-9000 vehicles a day travelling in each direction.
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.
