David replied to Adrian Essex's discussion Hasty Disposal of Hornsey Town Hall and Square must be delayed for mature consideration
"I don't think anything about the town hall sale can be considered hasty. While it's been great to use the town hall more what is going on is clearly temporary and I agree with the council that it's not sustainable in the long…"
