Harringay, Haringey - So Good they Spelt it Twice!


McDonald’s UK (Head Office) is the owner and operator of the drive-through restaurant at Green Lanes, Haringey, N4 1DR. This year they made a planning application for: “minor refurbishment with the replacement of one booth window, a new access door, and the rebuilding of the existing back-of-house facility, with associated works to the site.................... ”
Last month, unbelievably poor judgement resulted in the rapid felling of all mature boundary trees without seeking guidance or permission (during a scorching heatwave!) to be swiftly replaced with plastic grass.
Trees provide us with the very air that we breathe, they cool our environment, and they create a habitable and seasonal neighbourhood that we can all share and enjoy. We have asked Alistair Macrow (CEO of McDonald’s UK) and Jenny McColloch (VP Sustainability) to explain how this sits with their stated policies and their restaurant’s place in our community. So has your MP.
Challenge your local councillors Mike.Hakata@haringey.gov.uk (Climate Action/ Enviornment) & Julie.Davies@haringey.gov.uk (Communities £ Civic Life)
Please demand that shade trees are replanted on this site for the benefit of everyone in our neighbourhood.

This is excellent. Well done Lawrence.

Wow!!! Speechless

Thanks for the info Lawrence 

Excellent job Lawrence, really poor development from McD's

See the story unfold as it happened, on HoL here.

I will be attending the protest. I hope to see lots of other community members there as well!

I'm working on Saturday or I would be there! Please sing Big Yellow Taxi!

thanks for including the contact details, currently emailing to register my complaint and request for replacement trees

I've done the same and also asked for the plastic grass to be replaced with something living.

It looks like McDonald's have offered a fairly derisory 12 trees "in the vicinity" which Haringey council have enthusiastically endorsed. Pretty disgusted that  Haringey council would take part in McDonald's green washing.


The protest is going well. Well done to the organisers.

Great turn out! 

The trees have not been replaced.
