Launch of Wards Corner Action Plan

The N15 Development Trust Wards Corner Community Plan Action Plan Launch

25th February 2016 – 7pm

At Zumbale, 263 High Rd, London N15 4RR (just north of Seven Sisters tube, past Costas)wc1.jpg

 Who is the N15 Development Trust?

The N15 Development Trust is an organisation formed of members of the local community to deliver the Community Plan for Wards Corner in Seven Sisters. This proposal was granted planning permission by the council in May 2014.

Why is this plan best for the local community?

It will restore the historic Wards Corner building and provide a genuinely distinctive landmark at the entrance to Tottenham.

  • It will realise the potential of this hidden treasure for the benefit of the local population.
  • It will promote social inclusion and sustainable restoration, instead of demolition.
  • It will represent inclusive regeneration and conservation of heritage and diversity.
  • The Community Plan will promote independent businesses rather than corporate interests.

What are the advantages of the community plan?

In 2008, Seven Sisters Market was hailed by the BBC as a “mini-United Nations.” Despite decades of neglect, the hard work and perseverance of the market traders has preserved this unique space for use by people of all nationalities. However, the site is in urgent need of redevelopment and enhancement. The Community Plan will deliver this in a cost-effective way, within a relatively short timescale and primarily for the benefit of the public.

How do i find out more and get involved?

The N15 Development Trust is always looking for more support from volunteers. Join us to celebrate the launch of our action plan to deliver the Community Plan for this iconic building.

 

 

 

 

Steam Train Saturday Morning through SoTo

Like this one:

Steam train through South Tottenham

Two Black Five class steam locomotives pulling Cathedrals Express through South Tottenham Overground station, Steam Dreams excursion on the way to Chichester. 14th December 2013

Steam Dreams, a Guildford based promoter of mainly steam hauled rail tours under the CathedralsExpress banner, has operated steam hauled trains on both rail routes from Southend for several years now. Many of these are routed over the Barking – Gospel Oak line including the Christmas specials.
This Saturday’s Christmas train from Southend East (09:09) to Winchester for the Christmas market, picking up at Upminster (09:39-09:41) and West Hampstead (10:40-10:42), is almost fully booked.
Ian Riley’s LMS Black 5 4-6-0, 45407 The Lancashire Fusilier, the loco was declared “fit to run” yesterday. 45407 is no stranger to the Barking – Gospel Oak Line, hauling the previous two Christmas Cathedrals
Express’s from Southend on 14th December 2013 and 6th December 2014. However, on those two occasions she was double heading the train, coupled ‘inside’ classmate 44871. This will be the first time she has hauled a train over the Barking – Gospel Oak line unassisted.

South Tottenham 10:15.

Thanks to BARKING – GOSPEL OAK RAIL USER GROUP

other rail info to follow.

Last time it actually stopped at SoTo to change drivers. Uninformed me was on the wrong platform to chat to them.

 

Apex Towers plan published, open for comments till 6th November

The whole sordid detail of the plans for Apex House are now published.  See them here. There’s a lot of it.

Comments are beginning to arrive from local residents, overwhelmingly opposing it.

To comment, click the button that say Comment on Application.  You can write as much as you like, you may like to draft it in eg Word first as the working box is quite small.  They ask for your name + address etc but you don’t have to give this.  If you supply an address or email address you will be sent more info re the outcome.

It will probably go to the meeting on January 19th.

The  bit that makes my head explode most, of all those fat documents?  The Statement of Community Involvement.  We must have been at different meetings. Oh and that there is no local library where we can view the plans, as ours is currently being knocked apart to allow for the office part of Apex House to be bunged in there – before these plans have even gone to committee.

SoTo trains on bus replacement today Sunday

There is short notice rail engineering work taking place on the Barking – Gospel Oak Line TODAY.

The whole line is closed and two replacement bus services are running around every 15 minutes

  • Barking – South Tottenham operated by double deck buses
  • Gospel Oak – South Tottenham operated by single deck buses (due to low bridges).

There was originally to be only a morning Barking – South Tottenham block until 12:00 for track inspection purposes but this appeared to be cancelled last week. Continue reading
