Public Meeting Friday 9th December 7:30pm
Hornsey Vale Community Centre Mayfield Road,
off Weston Park N8
22.11.05 | GreenN8 submitted
proof of evidence with 7000 petition signatures and nearly
300 individual letters were also sent to the planning inspector.
Hundreds of people demonstrated outsided the
Civic Centre, demanding Councillors reject plans for a concrete
factory by the Hornsey rail line. There were banners and placards,
leaflets, chants especially from the young people present and
speeches. Inside the Council chamber the gallery was packed.
A petition of over 2500 people, and hundreds of letters of objection
were referred to including from residents associations, local
schools and a traders organisation.
The planning officers called on the application to be rejected on various grounds.
To great cheers and prolonged applause, the Councillors voted unanimously to
turn it down.
This was a magnificent victory for grass roots people power,
in particular the determined efforts throughout the last
15 month of local residents of GreenN8 and GreenN4&N15
However, the developer has lodged an appeal and the planning process will grind
on and on. Local residents are determined to continue until the idea of a concrete
factory in a residential area is totally rejected.
The meeting tonight was very well attended
over 150 people turned up. Many schools, parents and political
parties were represented. The debate was rich and people willingness
to spring into action was more then evident.
Haringey Planning Officers have published
their report today. The report recommend planning sub committee
