Connecting Crouch End and Hornsey with news, views and information

Do you remember the Earl Haig Memorial Hall.
Part of the Crouch End scene for many years, first as the British Legion, and more lately as a pub, theatre, music venue, meeting place and designated as an Asset of Community Value (ACV).
Despite some very lucid and well argued objections that it should continue to be an ACV the London Borough of Haringey gave permission for a change of use to a nursery. The nursery owners promised that all their clients would arrive on foot or by bus and that none would be in cars.
The truth of course is that most (60%) of the little darlings will will arrive by SUV, as is admitted in the travel plan in the latest planning application
I feel sure that the delay is only temporary but this travel plan, which should have been approved by LBH by 28th October, has not yet been. Possibly while 60% is fudged to look like a more acceptable number.
Meanwhile the Liveable Crouch End project is attempting to reduce traffic in the area.

Hmmm. The travel plan that predicted a number of clients would arrive by train, despite the nearest stations being a considerable distance away? Hornsey or Crouch Hill to Elder Avenue would be quite a hike for a toddler on a regular basis.

Technically I suppose most clients and staff would "arrive on foot", covering the last few metres to the door under their own steam or pushed in a buggy by a pedestrian carer.
