Is this in Wood Green, up next to Greggs bakers in what was Oses Cig Kofte kebab joint?

I think it is opposite what used to be BHS...

Okay. So up in Wood Green. I guess, since it’s replacing another jebab joint, it won’t have much trouble getting planning permission. 

""Rinse and repeat"

Can someone please leaflet local businesses about the use of apostrophes? Is there some organisation like the one used to protect French that might be interested in this? It hurts my eyes almost as much as the two dots (not one or three!) on The Hub.

You hadn’t heard that the new owners are Jo Kebab and Gerry Burger?

With the recently declined application for a highrise on the former M&S site it sounds like the high road will eventually become a massive building site for a while.  Food places will probably have a bigger chance of survival than other shops during this time.

if the building application was declined why will the high road become a massive building site?

Refused? Was that just last week? The current status on the planning portal is ‘pending decision’. 

Ah, ok - had a chance to do a quick search now and found the following on the Enfield Indy:

Plans to build flats of up to nine storeys on the site of the former Marks and Spencer store in High Road, Wood Green, were considered by Haringey Council’s planning committee on Monday (October 8).

The development would have provided 121 homes – mostly one-bed flats – along with a children’s play area and ground-floor retail space.

Planning officers had given the green light to the proposals, claiming the “high-quality contemporary design” would “improve the visual quality of the local built environment”.

Cllr Reg Rice, Labour member for Tottenham Hale, said: “In Haringey, we have a policy of 40 per cent affordable homes.

“Developers must understand when you come to Haringey now you must come much closer to, if not beyond, 40 per cent.”

Cllr John Bevan, Labour member for Northumberland park, objected to the size of the development, which he feared could lead to similar buildings being constructed along High Road.

But Emma Williamson, Haringey Council’s assistant director of planning, warned the Government’s Planning Inspectorate was likely to overrule the councillors.

She said: “Haringey policy (for 40 per cent affordable homes) is borough-wide, not on a site-by-site basis.

“My view is that reason would not hold up at appeal. I think you have already heard that we think this is a well-designed scheme.”

I note that the head of planning thinks this will be pushed through by the Planning Inspector.

Affordable to who?  Not the minimum waged.    And social housing?  Wankuzs

The development would have provided 121 homes – mostly one-bed flats – along with a children’s play area and ground-floor retail space.

One bed flats with a kids play area - that was well thought through
