Connecting Crouch End and Hornsey with news, views and information
The Friends of Parkland Walk have added an update to the petition which helped Haringey to decide not to allow a fully fledged development to happen in Francis Place, a property which, from the owner's point of view, is on the wrong side of the Parkland Walk.
The update appears to relate to an informal application to drive skip lorries over the Parkland Walk. You can read the whole update on the Francis Place petition page
The opening paragraphs are
"We have recently been informed by Haringey Council of a new application to permit vehicles to use the Walk. The owner has requested permission to bring skip lorries onto the property once a week for a period of 26 weeks. The contractor has stated that this is to remove wastage arising from refurbishment.
The Friends of the Parkland Walk view this new application with a number of concerns. The permissions would entail the grant of licences to break both the covenant prohibiting motor vehicle access and that prohibiting the removal of soil. These covenants were firmly defended by the council last year. We believe, that without robust legal controls, these licences, by waiving restrictions, could be used to set a precedent that might lead to the current request for limited development being extended to full development which will have a considerable impact on users of The Parkland Walk over a much longer period of time."
