Haringey's Labour and Liberal Democrats to discuss Hornsey Depot development
Rival political parties will hold public meetings over plans for more than 400 new flats, a supermarket and a car park in Hornsey.
Haringey’s Labour group and Liberal Democrats have each organised a forum for people to share their views on plans to develop the Hornsey Depot – which has stood derelict since 1998.
An application has been made to demolish the existing structures to make way for a Sainsbury’s supermarket, a car park, more than 400 flats and a gym.
The development is considered to play a considerable part in the future of Hornsey High Street and senior politicians from both parties will attend their respective meetings.
Haringey Borough Council’s cabinet member for regeneration, Councillor Alan Strickland, will attend the Labour Party’s meeting at St Mary’s School, in Rectory Gardens on Thursday, November 7.
The latest plans for the Hornsey Depot will be on display at the meeting at 7pm, which will be hosted by Hornsey’s Labour candidates for the local elections in May 2014, Adam Jogee, Jennifer Mann and Dr Elin Weston.
The MP for Hornsey and Wood Green, Lynne Featherstone, will chair the Liberal Democrat’s meeting at Griegs City Academy, in Hillfield Avenue on Friday, November 15, at 6.30pm.
Ms Featherstone and opposition councillors have criticised the authority for not providing residents with enough information about the application.
They have invited representatives from the developer St James and Sainsbury’s to the meeting to answer the public’s questions.
Plans are due to go before the council’s planning committee before the end of the year with a public development forum scheduled for November 26.
