1. The Planning Inspector has decided that the appeal needs a full inquiry, not an informal hearing. So our planned lobby of the hearing on Tuesday 28 October is now off. We will let people know as soon as we hear dates for an inquiry.
2. Friends of the Earth volunteers joined with local residents on Saturday 11th October to clean up dumped rubbish on Ermine Road open space. The site, which is designated green open space in Haringey’s plans, is threatened by housing development. It has been allowed to become derelict.
3. As well as pressing the Inspector to refuse the appeal, we are calling on the Council to work with local residents to secure a better future for the site which could include play space, food growing and areas managed for wildlife. Our petition is on line at
and together with our paper petition has had over 2,000 signatures so far.
