On Wed 22 Feb (and, possibly, Thurs 23 Feb), an independent planning inspector will assess objections to last-minute changes made by Haringey to their Core Strategy in 2010.
This will without doubt be one of the key days for this whole campaign. We’ve worked together to carve out a real chance to attack important groundwork that supporters of this waste plant probably expected would make it under the radar unhindered.
It's important that we fully reinforce how strongly we feel about this issue by filling the viewers’ gallery. It is rare that a community will get people in numbers to this sort of hearing, and it will not go unnoticed by the inspector. Many people have worked long and hard on the submissions that he'll hear on the day, and there’s no better way to show our appreciation for this than to be there.
We do realise that it’s a big ask on a weekday. However, if you are free for any part of it, please do come along. Some of us will be taking a little time off work (even if just to duck out early and catch the last couple of hours); we completely understand that this may not be an option for you, but please give it some thought.
As mentioned before, our role will simply be to sit quietly and listen. This is not a demonstration. Also, we shouldn't take children.
The hearing will take place on Wed 22 Feb, at Wood Green Civic Centre. It will start at 10am, with lunch at 1-2pm, and finish at 5.30pm. There will be breaks half-way through the am and pm sessions.
It’s fine to attend only part of the day, but we should really try and arrive/leave only when there is a break, unless absolutely necessary.
If you are able to come to some of it (and bring a friend/relative/innocent bystander!), please let us know by email. We need to check numbers, to ensure that that there aren’t too many (or too few) of us. In the meantime, please try and persuade others to come along if you can.
Please note that if one day turns out not to be long enough (which is quite likely), the hearing will continue on Thurs 23 Feb - if you're able to be on 'stand by' for this, please let us know.
