Connecting Crouch End and Hornsey with news, views and information

20181218 Plus ca change Liveable

A bit of an update sort of a thing from OpinioN8, of which you are a member, and just six months after the last one. And such is the pace of change around here, I am sorely tempted to send exactly the same one again. But some minor updates are needed if only to wish you all the Season's Greetings and a very Happy New Year which isn't far away now.
The "Liveable Neighbourhoods Initiative" is now slightly less sketchy and has been dubbed "Liveable Crouch End" (the interactive map doesn't work on my copy of Chrome) and ideas are even thicker on the ground than 6 months ago. This short video sketches in one of the early proposals.
Hornsey Library is due a makeover and there is a planning application to take a look at. I'm quite pleased that some of the massively overbearing trees are being removed.
The Hornsey Town Hall white elephant is taking shape rather neatly. Building works, which should have started on November 2nd, have not. And the early offer of apartments is selling about as many hot cakes as the abortive Saturday Market. Printworks houses and apartments are all still available , and the ground floor 'shop' may be opening as a solicitor. Rileys, in possibly the prime position, has closed down. Antic has disposed of the Earl Haig. And apparently there is no tenant yet for the ground floor section of 159 Tottenham Lane. Crouch End's best days may be behind it. Unless perhaps Liveable Crouch End comes up trumps.
Haringey has a new management team headed by Councillor Ejiofor, but still persists with its combination of steamroller attitudes, bunker mentality and mushroom management.

The Liveable Crouch End is really quite important. The chance to get more than £5m invested in Crouch End will crop up only rarely. We should take the chance to offer suggestions, and articulate our desires.
Perhaps the most innovative suggestion so far. Don't forget to add your comments to the official pre-engagement.
