The worst bit of news I heard about the council in the last 12 months was them turning down a new development with a youth recreation space/area because they didn’t want to partner up with a developer (who were taking all the risk) just because it was a political decision. The council have had all the good labour councillors replaced by hard left (Momentum pushes) people who ideologically don’t want to pursue these deals despite what benefits they might bring. I think it was Claire Kober the most high profile councillor who resigned over it.Yep.I'm in Haringey as well.I know exactly what they are like.
There is a council led/Lendlease developmwnt due to take place that was signed before they got in. But it’s yet to start and you have to think it’s the council dragging their feet purposely. Hopefully Starmer getting in might help but it will take a while for them to change. Of course the Mayor could help but he too seems to not be bothered, hence Levy having to use the Standard a couple of years ago to explore him for help.
I do t live in Tottenham, but my family are. so I’ve been going to the area all my life. Sure I support the club, but I have a strong will for the area to be a better place too.
