Grainger gets sticky hands on Apex House

Last night 9th May the Planning sub-committee of Haringey Council gave planning permission to the uber-rich developer Grainger to build a 23-storey tower at the junction of Seven Sisters Road and Tottenham High Road.  This will be blight on all the people who will live in its enormous shadow, and the millions who use the tube every year who will never again experience that sparkling moment as you come out of the tube station after a long sticky journey to step into sunlight. Forget that.

Watch the whole shameful episode in glorious 2D. http://www.haringey.public-i.tv/…/webcast…/223972

There are ten on the cttee plus chair.
Councillor Peray Ahmet (Chair)
Councillor Vincent Carroll (Vice-Chair)
Councillor Dhiren Basu
Councillor David Beacham (LD)
Councillor John Bevan
Councillor Clive Carter (LD, voted against)
Councillor Natan Doron
Councillor Toni Mallett
Councillor James Patterson
Councillor James Ryan
Councillor Elin Weston

Remember their names.

Our three ward councillors made a decent fist of it, some of them struggling to support us without losing their Cabinet positions. Isidoris branded it a monstrous oversized KingKong of a building, so now we’ll have competition for the Fagpacket Tower name.

And of course Cllr Strickland the people’s friend, waxed lyrical. He really loves Grainger.
