Do come to our Annual General Meeting.

Featuring TfL's Liveable Crouch End, with consultants on hand to update us on the big roads re-design project – and we’ll be asking how Crouch End should spend £100s of thousands ofCommunity Infrastructure Levy funds, and presenting ideas for the Crouch End Neighbourhood Plan including objectives for the town centre, the local environment, heritage, and housing.

Oh, and we'll be electing the 2019 Committee (details below – yes, you can join)

Save the Earl Haig?

The Haig closed in January and initial moves to market the premises by the new owners seem to have gone quiet. We're definitely suspicious (oh yes). The Earl Haig has, for exactly 90 years, played a social and community role in Crouch End, and we believe there's no reason it shouldn't continue. The Forum has therefore nominated it for ACV status...

 Local List of Heritage Assets
The Forum took the opportunity to nominate a few local buildings as additions to Haringey's Local List of heritage assets. Many of the key buildings are already listed of course, but we suggested 6 more, including the inter-war brewers' Tudor of the Railway Tavern, the ex-Sally Army Arthouse, the Belle Époque King's Head, and the Earl Haig (yes, a double whammy of listing).

Read here for a quick summary of what Local Listing entails.

 Hornsey Town Hall Arts submits planning amendments
The developers (and MAKE architects) recently dropped a few revisions and some new drawings into planning. The Forum took a look. Things seem a little slow with the project right now, but maybe we'll be able to share something at the AGM. In the meantime, there's always room for some searching questions, and always a point in encouraging the community to engage with the scheme.

Difficult times on the High Street, where the problems may be national but the impact is local. Among reports of poor trading conditions in Crouch End, 2019 has witnessed a closure rate more than 3 times that of last year. Most of the closures are chains.

So since January it's farewell to the Earl Haig pub, Kwik Fit, Subway, Oddbins, Sorbet, Salon Seventy-Two, Santander (in the summer), and apparently Thomerson's timber shop. More under threat too, including Evans Cycles and quite a few restaurants. Get out there and visit your local shop folks.

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.
