Connecting Crouch End and Hornsey with news, views and information
The Hornsey Depot website has been splendidly updated with masses of information. Do take a look , this is an important addition to the area.
OpinioN8 has received the following email from our local lib dem councillors asking for your opinions.
Many of you came to the exhibition and workshops held two weeks ago at St Mary's School to find out more about what is proposed for Hornsey Central Depot. This is the area of land on Hornsey High Street opposite Grieg City Academy that is currently used as a recycling centre. Failed plans for its reuse date back to the 1990s.The key elements of the new plans include:
- 400 residential units (some private, some social housing)
- a 36,000 sq ft Sainsbury's (tucked away off the high street)
- a 100+ space car park
- Some business start up unitsAt the exhibition there were some helpful display boards with lots of information. You will see from the note below (from the consultation organisers) that these will be available at www.hornseydepot.com.Many of the people at the workshops raised concerns about
- Density of housing
- Effect on traffic locally and in the wider surroundings of the High Street
- Impact on local shopping centres
- Where will the recycling centre go?Please take a few minutes to visit the page, look at the information and let Paul and me know what your views are.Looking forward to hearing from you.Best wishesCouncillor David Winskill firstname.lastname@example.orgCouncillor Paul Strang
