Given that very little of what we have so far been told about the Hornsey Town Hall development
seems to be holding up, we should all make the effort to attend the Development Management Forum
Development Management Forum
Date: 10th July
Venue: Earl Haig Hall , 18 Elder Ave, London N8
Site Address: Hornsey Town Hall, The Broadway, London N8 9JJ
Proposal: Demolition of the Weston Clinic building. Change of use of the Hornsey Town Hall to an apart-hotel, food and beverage uses and community and co-working uses.

Change of use of the ground floor of Broadway Annex to food and beverage use and change of use of the first and second floors to residential use comprising 14 units. The erection of a residential mews block to the rear of the Broadway Annex. Landscaping improvements to the public square and open spaces.
Haringey has this to say about the meeting itself:
The Development Management Forum is not the arena for detailed discussion on the finer details of the forthcoming application it is an opportunity in a neutral setting for members of the community to have sight of proposals prior to submission and to provide initial feedback. A 2 hour meeting does not provide the arena for a discussion on finer detail. It is also not the arena for the Local Planning Authority to give its view on the proposal as this will be formed after a detailed assessment of the proposal and our policies.
The applicant will give a 15 or so minute presentation on their scheme and then a question and answer session will be chaired by Dean Hermitage the Head of Development Management.
This is a heritage led project and the primary planning policies will be those on heritage and the site allocation for this site.
We have not finalised planning obligations etc as yet.
As such these documents listed below will not be available before the meeting.
When we spoke last week you asked about the timetable for the application. I was mistaken when I said that submission would be in September. A late July submission is targeted. I apologise for my mistake. This is of course subject to change and this is down to the applicant. It may be that they decide to postpone to take into account any matters raised at the DM forum.
I am sure that yourself or other members of the community will raise the issue that the application will be submitted in the school holidays. As you will know comments are accepted on applications up until a decision is taken, even though the formal period is 21 days, and 13 November Planning Committee is targeted for determination. In recognition of the fact that the application is being submitted in the holidays we will extend to consultation period to be 5 weeks rather than the usual 3 weeks.
