Plans threaten local green space AGAIN

Another planning application is threatening local green space previously dubbed by the council as “Ecological Valuable”. The plans relate to the scrub land next to the crossing of the Gospel Oak-Barking and mainline railways, sandwiched between Plevna Crescent and Ermine Road on the one side and Wickes on the other.

Please support this appeal from our local Friends of the Earth group:

“Developers are again trying to build over the green space where the Barking-Gospel Oak lie crosses the Seven Sisters line at Plevna Crescent and Ermine Road.
“We – Tottenham & Wood Green Friends of the Earth – have previously helped defeat two applications to build on this site, and we have submitted an objection along with others to this latest application.
“Please add your voice as an individual [or group] (not mentioning Friends of the Earth). Go to http://www.planningservices.haringey.gov.uk/portal/servlets/ApplicationSearchServlet?PKID=270942 
“Scroll down to the “Comment on Application” box, and add a short comment making it clear that you object to the loss of green open space especially in this area which does not have much green space.”

Building backing on Plevna Crescent & Ermine Road?

Well done to those who monitored this so closely, and thanks again to SoTo blog for sharing the news! Now the space has been saved, it begs the question could it be put to better use as wild green space for the community?

A potentially worrying development plan has been pointed out by our fellow South Tottenham bloggers over on SoTo: Big development planned for N15 railway embankments.

The Council is considering an application to build on the scrub land next to the railways sandwiched between Plevna Crescent and Ermine Road Continue reading
