The depot site on Hornsey High Street (N8 7QB) has been unoccupied and derelict since 1998 – as the Labour Council continually failed to strike a deal with a developer.
A planning application has now finally been submitted for the site – and there’s still time to make your views heard.
In the application, the developers say they will demolish the existing structures to make way for a supermarket, car park, over 400 flats and a gym.
Before the application was submitted, the local Lib Dems made representations to the developers and secured amendments to their proposals. Most notably, they reduced the height of a 10-storey block of flats in response to Lib Dem and local resident & trader concerns.
However, local councillors have also expressed concerns regarding the impact upon local traffic and the quality of the plans themselves.
The local Lib Dems are keen to find out your views and concerns on the development on Hornsey Depot, so please do fill in our survey. We will present the survey results as part of our official response to the planning application.
If you’d rather respond directly – you can do so on the Council’s website, using application number is HGY/2013/2019.
