For the Boundary Review final proposals on London published in 2012 (following a public consultation in 2011), go to: 

http://assets.boundarycommissionforengland.independent.gov.uk/wp-content/uploads/2012/10/2900327_London_ACCESSIBLE-1.pdf?9d7bd4

(see the main paragraph which covers Stroud Green ward on page 26 - see especially paragraphs AC88, also AC90).

 

The Boundary Commission concluded:  

"The proposal that Stroud Green should be included in a Tottenham constituency received very little support, and was opposed by a large number of people and organisations, including all three Parliamentary parties, the present councillors for Stroud Green ward (IP/025512),11 and the Stroud Green Residents’ Association (IP/023119). Many respondents emphasised that this proposal would break local ties between Stroud Green and other Hornsey wards. We have therefore decided that Stroud Green ward should be part of a Hornsey and Wood Green constituency". 

IF YOU DON'T WANT
STROUD GREEN
TO BE IN TOTTENHAM

Tell the boundary commission  
NOW!!!!

We only have until Monday 5th of December to respond to the boundary commission proposal to annex Stroud Green into Tottenham.


The next general election seems a long way away, but when the time comes, many people could be in for a very big surprise. If you live in Stroud Green, you may find you are no longer part of Hornsey and Wood Green constituency, but Instead are part of Tottenham.
 

So why are we talking about it right now?


Because now we can do something to stop it by responding to the Boundary Commission consultation by the 5th of December 2016. But before you do, it is important you read on:
 

Are you having a Déjà vu moment?


If you do, it is because we have been here before... The first time was 5 years ago in 2011. At the time Stroud Green residents responded en masse and it worked! In 2013 The boundary commission published the revised proposal and agreed with us that Stroud Green should stay where it is! (Please find the relevant quotes from it at the bottom of this email.)
