Following refusal of planning permission on grounds of over intensive development, a revised application has been submitted, for extension of the ground floor rear additon, replacement of the conservatory with a permanent extension, a small first floor extension, and conversion of the loft to residential accommodation. While previously eight flats were proposed, seven flats of between one and three bedrooms are now proposed. Please view the application and comment, by going to http://www.planningservices.haringey.gov.uk/portal/servlets/ApplicationSearchServlet?PKID=262848
The association does not normally get involved in householder applications for planning permission or applications generally, unless they seek to establish an undesirable precedent or will clearly adversely affect the area. It has though commented from time to time on the conversion of properties where a change of use is involved or where the intensity of development is significant.

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.
