January 2019

Happy new year. We're inviting you in with a warm glow and some leftover consultations. I believe we're now up to five. Keep up at the back. Happily the Forum are at hand to tell you what matters, and to us there's nothing more deeply satisfying than the Liveable Crouch End project, or as cheering as the Hornsey Town Hall Arts Centre e-survey. Details below.

 Hot off the press – Crouch End has reached peak bean

A low vacancy rate, a healthy mix of retail and services...  all's well on the Broadway? Maybe, maybe not... we had a look and attempted to draw lessons about the future of the High Street.

In a year that said farewell to Riley's, MEB Motors, Ruby Rose, Blue Legume and the Jade Palace (and hello to Paesan, Little Mercies, and Florians), our big finding is this...  we may have reached peak coffee bean. Steady now.

 Liveable Crouch End – the pre-engagement engagement

The roll-out of public engagement continues for Crouch End's major roads and travel project. Three drop-in sessions are announced for the general public –

Wednesday 9th January from 4-8pm at Hornsey Town Hall
Tuesday 15th January from 10am-4pm at Hornsey Library 
Saturday 19th January from 12-4pm at Hornsey Town Hall

These events are running alongside an online survey at www.pclconsult.co.uk/liveablecrouchend  – it’s live until Thursday 31st January. We’ll only get the improvements we want if we tune in, turn out, have a say, and otherwise stick an oar in. Read more.

 Hornsey Town Hall Arts Centre e-survey

By way of a reminder, your last chance to participate in the ongoing audience research survey for HTH. It runs until Monday 7th January. Don't leave it, see here for instructions.

They've opened a café too.

 Haringey ward boundaries to be re-drawn

The wonks at the Boundary Commission have the Haringey political map in their sights, and the re-setting of the local ward boundaries is out for consultation until February 4th. All change before the next local elections? Read more for details

 Trains and boats and planes

Or at least buses, cars and cycles. Haringey is consulting on the new draft Local Implementation Plan (LIP), which will govern much of the road and pavement spending for the next few years.Read more   .... and don't forget, 2019 is the year the replacement Wells Terrace bus station entrance to Finsbury Park tube re-opens. Well done everyone, just another 8 months to go.

Oh yes. And the 5th current consultation?

Haringey are also going public with their 'Ultra Low Emission Vehicle Action Plan'. Coming to a street near you, click here to discover more, it's electrifying.

Planning Dept.

We learnt that Little Mercies' shopfrontreceived consent, that Middeys are in themiddle of a dispute over their canopy and extractor system, that developers are still keen on Abbots Terrace, and that garages and gardens are successfully converting to mews houses (such as this one behind Weston Park).

Meanwhile, expect roadworks on Tottenham Lane – a new bus stop boarder is being constructed near the mini-roundabout, works begin January 14th. And the reconstuction ofMiddle Lane junction is slowly happening – expect roadworks here soon (as a raised road platform is built). In the interim we're enjoying a rising plantation of belisha beacons (picture).

The Forum are working toward a survey of Crouch End and the development of policies that can direct the way our community develops in the future – our Neighbourhood Plan – new members are always welcome, no subscription necessary, and open to all. We have 1,000s of people, local organisations and businesses signed up.
