Plans to build a new supermarket, car park and more than 400 homes on a former refuse depot site are due to be discussed for the last time today.

Haringey Borough Council’s planning committee will consider the final proposal for the redevelopment of Hornsey Depot, in Hornsey High Street, this evening.

Commitee members will then decide whether or not to grant planning permission for the 3,250sq m site.

The MP for Hornsey and Wood Green, Lynne Featherstone, has previously raised concerns about the impact of the development on local businesses.

She also said it could cause increased traffic and create strain on school places and GP services.

However, the developer has already agreed to give £500,000 towards creating more school places and £83,000 towards a feasibility study for new controlled parking zones for the area.

It has also committed £60,000 to improve cycling and walking routes in the Hornsey High Street.

Planning officers have recommended that the application be approved and the committee will make its decision at 7pm at the Civic Centre, in High Road, Wood Green.
