A DMF is a statutory requirement for any major development.
The Council holds Development Management Forums to facilitate the discussion of large scale or contentious development proposals. The forum does not reach a decision about an application.
They say, “Its purpose is to allow participants to raise issues of concern and obtain answers to questions about the particular proposal. Wherever possible this will be prior to the submission of a formal application. The aim is to allow early discussion by Councillors and members of the public on planning issues related to these proposals and to explore the scope for amendments and agreement between all parties in a positive and constructive way prior to the later decision being made at the Planning Sub Committee.”
This one for Apex House has been very inconspicuously advertised. A couple of emails to Residents’ Associations; we found three A4 notices near Apex House. That’s it. It’s almost as if they don’t want anyone to go. Wouldn’t these stop you in your tracks? –
So just in case you feel like telling the developer, the council and the architect what you think of the plan for a 22-storey tower and moving the Customer Services into the Library, here’s the where/when/how/why:
Find out about proposals to develop Apex House, 820 Seven Sisters Road, N15 5PQ before a planning application is submitted.
- Date: Wednesday 27 May
- Time: 7 – 9pm
- Place: The Exam Room, The College of Haringey, Enfield and North East London (CONEL), Tottenham High Road, N15 4RU
At the meeting the developer will present proposals for the site and there will be an opportunity for attendees to ask questions, seek clarification and set out their views.
The proposal is:
Redevelopment comprising the demolition of existing council office and erection of new buildings up to 22 storeys in height providing 154 residential unit (of which 39% will be affordable) and 887 sqm of commercial floor space.
The purpose of the meeting is:
- To discuss the proposal before a planning application is made
- To give local people the opportunity to ask questions and give their views on the proposal as they stand at this stage
Everyone is welcome to attend
A planning application has not yet been received from the developer for this site. If one is submitted in the future the council will publicise and consult on the application in the normal way.
