The planners and architects may have got over their shock by now that the people who came to the Development Management Forum last week were appalled at the plans for Apex House (except one person). The DMF is a statutory meeting, any major development has to have such a public meeting, inviting those who will be affected. As the Apex plans will affect thousands, it’s a shame that only two dozen people had heard of it in time to get to that meeting. Now there’s a more cuddly one, two chances, I bet they give you wine. Or biscuits. Go tell them, citizens of SoTo.

“A PUBLIC EXHIBITION
Proposed redevelopment of Apex House, Seven Sisters Road, Tottenham
Grainger and architects John McAslan + Partners invite you to a second public exhibition to view the latest designs for the redevelopment of Apex House.
This consultation event provides an opportunity to see how the proposals have progressed since the first exhibition earlier this year. Have your say on our plans to deliver high-quality new homes and commercial space for Tottenham.
The exhibition will be held at The Café at Tottenham Centre, College of Haringey, Enfield and North East London, High Road, N15 4RU on:
Thursday 4th June 2015, 4pm-8pm;
Saturday 6th June 2015, 12pm-4pm.
Probably not set up as question-and-answer, they will show you their slightly-misleading drawings and invite you to comment. Please do so, if we say nothing they will think we like it. Unless they have added a new one, there is no drawing of how it will look from the High Road. Basically, think of a great flat slab wider than Apex House is now, going up to the sky.
