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.

  • 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

and they say WE misrepresent THEM????

As posted on Harringay Online – see there for many replies:

A spokesman from LBH was quoted on Sunday on a short BBC News report on the imminent closure of Marcus Garvey Library in Tottenham:

“Haringey Council Statement: We’re very disappointed that a £3million investment to revamp and modernise one of our most popular libraries has been misrepresented. The refurbishment of the library will see it enhanced with new books and equipment, as well as additional services.”

It’s on youtube: clip  as on earler post

This is the library that is being halved in size as they cram in most of the Customer Services from Apex House. Continue reading
