Event Description

Just Like buses, no events recorded for weeks then three come along at once.

This from Islington, though just on Crouch End borders and definitely in N8.

 

 


I am writing to tell you that work to redevelop the site of the former Crouch Hill Recreation Centre at Crouch Hill will begin in April 2011.

 


A new energy centre will provide zero carbon energy for the whole site - probably not nuclear though.

Dear  Resident,

Improving Crouch Hill – public meeting invite

I am writing to tell you that work to redevelop the site of the former Crouch Hill Recreation Centre at Crouch Hill will begin in April 2011.   The project will provide a new school building for Ashmount Primary School and Bowlers Community Nursery.  The CAPE Play and Youth building will be extensively refurbished and improvements will be made to the open space at Crouch Hill, including new entrances for easier access and a new sports pitch.  A new energy centre will provide zero carbon energy for the whole site. In partnership with Homes for Islington we will also provide low carbon heating to 40 homes at Coleman Mansions.  Residents of Coleman Mansions will receive another letter to explain this in more detail. While the new buildings are being constructed, the open space at Crouch Hill will be closed to the public for safety reasons.  However, Bowlers Community Nursery will continue to operate on the site and theNature Reserve and the Parkland Walk will not be affected. The new park will reopen in Autumn 2012 when all the building and landscaping is completed.   You are invited to a public meeting at 7pm on 23 March 2011 at Bowlers Nursery, 81 Crouch Hill, London N8 9EG.Representatives from Islington Council and Willmott Dixon will be there to answer your questions and provide more information about the future of Crouch Hill and the construction works. The meeting will be chaired by Jeremy Corbyn MP. Preparations for the project will start on the site in the new few weeks including the planned removal and pruning of trees. We need to do this work now so that it is finished before the bird nesting season begins. We expect there to be little or no inconvenience to the public during this work.   We are removing only unhealthy trees and those identified in our planning application for removal.  We will be planting more new trees in the park than we are removing. If you have any questions about any aspect of the project please contact any one of the following peopleKate Cornwall-JonesProject Manager, Children’s Servicest. 020 7527 5831m. 0777 329 4147e. kate.cornwall-jones@islington.gov.ukMartin DennisProject Officer, Special Projects, Homes for Islington t. 020 7572 7834m. 0785 541 9208e. martin.dennis@homesforislington.org.ukStephen HarnettOperations Manager, Willmott Dixon Construction Ltdm. 0777 331 9551e.  steve.harnett@willmottdixon.co.uk.Yours sincerelyEleanor Schooling Corporate Director, Children’s ServicesIslington Council
