The HDV people have a march on Saturday too. Facebook event here. I'm a bit disappointed to see you're not more joined up with them.
We are in touch with them/they us John for the exchange of mutual support - the HDV march goes along Green Lanes to arrive at Finsbury Park at 3pm so it's possible for people to do both. There's is a much bigger event of course so don't want to water it down.
PLEASE CAN YOU POST THE LINK FOR THE PLANNING APPLICATION?
All the details on the HTH application are assembled on the handy guide to objecting page I mentioned.
If you go to the planning section of the Council's website, you can also search for individual things there, including addresses, postcodes, topics etc. HTH is also at the top of their Major Contentious Developments page.
If you mean the HDV - one place to go is stophdv.com - the HDV is not one single planning application.
Thanks but I found it, this was all I needed and for anyone else looking for direct application link here who are short on time like myself:
REFERENCE NUMBER: HGY/2017/2220
Also, I am not directly local so don't know what "HDV "means??
Glad you've found it! A direct link:
appears at the very top of the handy guide to commenting I linked to - full of suggestions as to how you might want to comment.
The council and a huge Australian developer (Lendlease) each have 50% of a company that will own all £2bn's worth of Haringey's property (social housing, council estates, bits of land etc). The company will 'regenerate', pay Lendlease for the work then split any profits - rinse and repeat. Ownership of the housing remains with the Council. The Council claim this is a fundamentally different approach as usually, when Council's partner with developers, they lose control of the dwellings and future profits.
The transfer of council property is the largest in England, ever and thus regarded by commentators as a massive risk, and apparently by residents as totally out of order.
The company is called the 'Haringey Development Vehicle' - hence HDV
Ah thank you for your informative reply, will also have a look at the link. It's outrageous and terrifying but not at all surprising from Haringey council. Up until now crouch end has been largely left alone at least structurally---here in seven sisters it's been an ugly land grab left right and centre for some time now. Thanks for spreading the word.
All part of the service! Good luck with all your endeavours.
