Harringay, Haringey - So Good they Spelt it Twice!

I haven't featured this till now, but perhaps it's about time.......

The struggle our neighbours are engaged in to save a local landmark building. This from Grove Park Road Residents:

I am writing to inform you about an event taking place on Saturday 19th July from 2.00 - 4.00 at Seven Sisters tube station in Tottenham N15

Local residents and traders will be attempting to form a human chain around an entire block which is threatened with demolition in order to make way for yet another cluster of chain stores topped by a tower of private, gated community flats.

Currently the site houses a much loved Latin American indoor market and local shops around the block. The building on the corner is remarkable. We want it restored and used for much needed community purposes.

It seems that all over London (and indeed the whole country) , developers are moving in to trash places of great value to local people. In the current economic climate we are more than likely to end up with a hole in the ground for many years to come – or perhaps empty shops and properties and more buy to let landlords.

Tottenham has been much maligned. This site has the potential to be something we can be really proud of. We are determined to have our voices heard and not to give up. We very much hope that you can report our event.

This battle has been going on ever since the Seven Sisters area got a £50m regeneration injection several years ago. It's a real shame all parties haven't been able to come together on this so that the SS area can be greatly improved. Because it needs it.

Brixton now shines as a result of some fabulous investment decisions. Maybe people should look to Brixton to find out how they succeeded.
