The detailed planning applications have just been submitted (HGY/2019/2929 and HGY/2019/2930) for the Spurs development of the site at the top of the High Road. I think the development is to be called Tottenham Fairgate.

Our Tottenham coordination meeting: 

22 August 2019, 7.30 – 9.15pm at Tottenham Community Sports Centre

Notes of meeting (Mark Panton)   [Plus attached]

In attendance: Carlos (WCC), Chris (StArt), Dave (StArt), George (TWT), Jasmine (part – FMGL), Mark (Researcher), Martin (FDLP), Paul (HDCH), Shirley (WCC), Tom (Royal Holloway University). Apols: Dave Morris (FLR)

We received updates from the groups present as follows:

Chris (StArt)

Chris outlined the background to the project.  The original plan for the site was to include 150 social housing units, but this target may now be reduced to 50 social housing units.  Members of the Trust have also been told that they would not have an administrative office on the site within Mayfield House.  There appears to be a serious attempt to silence the voice of the local community, in discussing the issues surrounding the development.  The GLA attitude is for the St Anne’s Community Trust to comply with its approach of for the Trust to be on the outside of the development.

The AGM of the St Anne’s Community Trust will take place at Chestnuts Primary School on 28 September and everybody is invited to attend.

Carlos (Latin Market / Ward’s Corner Coalition)

Carlos stated that the Judicial Review against the Compulsory Purchase Order for the Latin Market will take place at the High Court on 8 and 9 October.  The main ground of the application is that the Community Plan submitted by the community of traders (in all its versions, including the latest 4th version) has not been given proper consideration by Haringey Council.  Having submitted the 4th version of the plan earlier in August, the coalition is hoping for more of a listening ear from the council.  The Community Plan includes social housing on a small scale together with community space for start-ups and for other types of community events.

George (London Renters Union)

George set out the background to the LRU.  It started out to be mainly involved in private rentals, but has also become involved with campaigns related to council housing.  The LRU is now London-wide with branches in Newham, Hackney and Lewisham.  It is specifically working on rent control, section 21 evictions and YesDSS campaigns.  The organisation has a website, is on Twitter and publishes a newsletter.  Individuals and groups are invited to join and to subscribe.

Shirley (Just Space)

Shirley discussed the London Plan and the hard work of Just Space together with all the individuals involved, but its outcome being development-led.  Shirley asked what the strategy might be to exert influence?  There was some discussion about empowerment and the possibility of these issues of how to influence such bodies being the subject of a conference.

Dave (StArt)      

Dave continued the theme of how to be more effective.  Dave said StArt had been confronted with the issue as to whether it could exert more influence being around the table or being on the outside.

Paul (Haringey Defend Council Housing)

Paul said that the examination in public of the London Plan had been to some extent rewarding, but also frustrating with much of it developer-led.  Since 2010 the rent focus had moved to “affordable rent”. There has been a push to sell council land to private developers with council rents increasing, although Haringey had a good record on this issue.  It happens on a covert basis and good practice needs to be enforced.  Paul has written to try to support good practice and to make enquiries.  There is a Regulator of Social Housing.  These issues impact disproportionately on the BAME community and on families with a woman as head of the household.

Mark (Researcher)

Mark debriefed on the Tate Exchange event that ran from 6-11 August at Tate Modern.  The Tottenham section of the event looked at the impact of the new Spurs stadium on the local community.  A reception, organised by Peacock Industrial Estate, was held on 6 August at which 50 people attended, including those from PIE, Love Lane Estate as well as local councillors Dawn Barnes, John Bevan, Dana Carlin and Ruth Gordon together with Bek Seeley from Lendlease.  The centre of the exhibition was a 2-metre high wooden Trojan horse designed and made by Martin Bates from PIE.   On 7 August there were talks from Martin Ball and Reverend Paul Nicholson, which led to an article appearing in the Daily Mirror on 9 August by Ros Wynne-Jones on the impact of the stadium on residents and businesses.  This led to a response on Twitter from Joe Eijiofor.  On 8 August at Tate Exchange Tottenham Community Press allowed people to design their own front page of a newspaper.

It was suggested by Chris that the Trojan horse could be made into a 3-D logo and used by Our Tottenham and other community groups.  MP will check with Martin Bates and Amanda Lillywhite (designer) about the possibility of designing such a logo for use.

Paul (Haringey Defend Council Housing)

Paul said there seemed to have been a wider change in views about estate demotions with the Executive Mayor of Lewisham recently stating it was not sustainable anymore and there was lessappetite for doing this anymore.  HDCH has written to the executive member for housing about the council’s plans with 4,605 council homes on 10 sites still at risk of demolition. 

George (The World Transformed)

TWT is an event that will take place as part of the Arts, Culture and Politics Festival around the Labour Party conference in Brighton, 21-24 September.   The TWT event will be part of the municipal Socialism and Radicalising Local Politics stream taking place from 1.00 – 3.00 pm on 24 September.  The event will be cabaret style with people moving around the room between 3 projects.  Among the issues discussed will be ‘What can be learned from the Latin Village?’ and ‘Community wealth building from below’.  Different principles that can be learned from the campaigns involving Ward’s Corner, TAG and StArt will be discussed.

Chris, supported by Carlos, argued there needed to be an end to confidentiality in public procurement.

Jasmine (Friends of Marcus Garvey Library)

Jasmine outlined the main issue facing the Marcus Garvey Library, which still relates to the garden at the back of the premises.  Jasmine said they just really need one councillor to stand up for them.  There are problems with the Regen Team, which seems to want to concrete over most of the garden and open up use of the back door to the library.  There seems to be a new council, but little change in attitude from the previous regime.  Jasmine was interested in people’s views as to what could be done due to the lack of change.

Chris suggested making some outrageous claims.

Carlos said that the Latin Market had gone to the United Nations and if the JR failed, would do so again.

Paul said that some things have changed in housing with the plan to build 1,000 council homes, buying housing for use by council tenants when it becomes available and a revised Addendum C.  Other things have not changed.  With the plan to build 1,000 homes, there is no development team in place.  As a result 61 in-fill sites have been identified for building.  Councils are also still wedded to the idea of building private homes to cross-subsidise council homes.

Paul said that the defeat of the HDV had sent shockwaves among developers.  For example, Milton Keynes had stopped demolitions in the context of the Haringey HDV.

Shirley (Just Space)

There is a lot of student interest in what is going on in Tottenham, but numerous ways in which they get involved with community groups.  Just Space, along with 13 universities, is trying to set out what community groups expect from students that want to become involved and what students could expect from their involvement.  [A protocol has been developed and is available here: https://justspace2010.wordpress.com/welcome-to-just-space/about-2/research-protocol/ ]

Martin (Friends of Down Lane Park)

Martin summarised developments on a number of issues

- Spurs complaints related to Event Days and ambitions to push out social housing.  Also to demolish housing in Worcester Park.NFL ambitions to take over Bruce Park and Bruce Castle Museum.

- Tottenham Hale: 5 building sites with a road through it – many complaints. 

- Tottenham High Road: council trying to reinvigorate.

- TAG Love Lane: look out for publicity

- XR: event on 7-8 September.  Martin to circulate information.

Next Meeting: 7.30 pm, 17 October at Tottenham Community Sports Centre(venue tBCF)

REMINISCENCE CAFÉ AT THE CASTLE

Join us for our monthly reminiscence sessions - just come along, enjoy a cup of tea and share your memories.

Allotments and Gardens

  • Tuesday 19 November, 2-4pm

Growing things - practical fruit and vegetables or lovely flowers - is a very special experience. It takes a lot of hard work preparing the soil, planting seedlings, watering and caring for them as they grow (and cursing the snails and aphids), but there is so much satisfaction in eating fresh carrots grown in your garden or allotment, or enjoying the beauty of shrubs and flowers.

Were you allowed to help in the garden as a child, or did you start growing things as an adult without any experience? How did you learn to grow and care for plants? Were you lucky enough to have an allotment or share in one where you could grow leeks and onions in abundance, or just a tiny backyard or balcony with glorious flowers?

Bring along any pictures you have and stories of your experience of growing plants!


SPECIAL EVENT

The Festive Tottenham Flea at the Castle

·       Saturday 23 November, 10.30am – 4.30pm

Special event: The King of White Hart Lane

Book-signing - with sports author, Mike Donovan

  • Saturday 30 November, 1 - 3.30pm

Alan
            Gilzean - The King of White Hart Lane by Mike Donovan

Come along to Bruce Castle and meet award-winning author and sports journalist Mike Donovan at the book-signing of his new book 'The King of White Hart Lane'. A Spurs fan since 1961, Mike has written several Tottenham Hotspur-related books including 'Glory, Glory Lane: Spurs' Greatest Games', as well as 'Spurs' Unsung Hero: Terry Dyson'.

'The King of White Hart Lane' is the authorised life-story of Alan Gilzean, the legendary, world-class Tottenham Hotspur, Dundee and Scotland footballer. Exclusive insights provided by his family, closest friends and colleagues add to the author's own experience - and his research at the archive at Bruce Castle - to reveal Gilzean, the man and the player.

A reserved, charming and intelligent individual who shunned the limelight off the field, Gilzean played with a swagger as a maker and taker of goals, especially alongside Jimmy Greaves at Spurs. Becoming one of the greatest performers in the history of both his clubs, Gilzean was an elegant striker and popular footballer, dubbed 'Nureyev in Boots'. There will never be another like him.

Get your own signed copy of this new book by Mike Donovan for only £13.99, direct from the author. Just pop along on Saturday 30 November.

Peckham surpasses Tottenham Why? plus

JJ Best
 

Peckham surpasses Tottenham Why?

Read this. Go to Peckham and see for yourself how the area and Southwark Council have maintained the shops serving the local population but also have managed to drive ‘regeneration’ and improvement.

I remember when I first got involved in 'things Tottenham’ I suggested to councillors support for and investment in the local Afro-Caribbean ethnic hairdressing sector to make it a pull factor for incomers to Tottenham. Low and behold in Peckham they are doing just this to drive ‘regeneration’. Here we will get more chain stores with low waged staff on precarious contracts and loads of dodgy bars serving football hoards that regularly invade our High Road every so often making us take refuge in our homes or leave the area to escape the traffic and pedestrian mayhem and that cause our regular shops to lose trade.

We lobbied Haringey council to preserve existing buildings that preserve architectural heritage, uniqueness that gives a vital sense of place and belonging to the diverse local stakeholders. In Peckham they are doing this svn turning an ugly multi-storey car park into a cultural community asset. In Haringey they are planning widespread demolition and replacement by generic (read mind numbing and ugly) high rise flats bought by overseas absentee investors….see the Wards Corner Grainger insipid monstruousity planned for Seven Sisters. The council and its previous and new leaders have been warned about this and have done nothing to change the situation. In fact, they have aided and abetted this bad plan over the last 15 years! Another sad Tottenham disaster in the waiting.

In Southwark they realised that just by starting off by INVESTING in a proper public realm, with decently designed street furniture and all that goes with it that, they can generate positivity and pride in the community and make the neighbourhoods attractive places without having to bribe developers to invest. We in Tottenham get councillors newsletters with news stating that in Tottenham we should rejoice because WE ARE GETTING CRUMBS!

Tottenham Regeneration my ass!

With respect.

BRUCE GROVE WARD

 

Councillor’s Report – November/December 2019

 

Dear J J,

I hope you are keeping well. Please find below my councillor’s report, which includes an update on the Liveable Neighbourhoods programme, Bruce Grove Station forecourt and other regeneration projects.  

As always, please do not hesitate to contact me should you require any assistance or just to have a chat.

 

- Felicia -

 

Liveable Neighbourhoods

The Transport for London (TfL) Liveable Neighbourhoods programme gives boroughs the opportunity to bid for funding for long-term schemes that encourage walking, cycling and the use of public transport with the ultimate aim of reducing car trips and air pollution. Examples of how the funding can be used include creating green spaces, improving cycling infrastructure and redesigning junctions. The Council is preparing a bid for Liveable Neighbourhood Fund for Bruce Grove which is great news. I will update you on progress made in due course.

 

Bruce Grove Station forecourt update

A joint planning application with the Council and Network Rail was submitted in 2015 and approved. This application lapsed at the end of 2018. Network Rail has since sold their property to a private developer. The Council is continuing efforts to engage with the new owners to deliver the consented scheme.

 

Bruce Grove public conveniences

This is a project for the renovation and extension of a Grade II listed Council owned building, to bring it off the Heritage at Risk Register and provide a new commercial unit with strong social value credentials on Bruce Grove. The site is an important landmark strongly valued by the local community. The project has £670k of funding secured from the GLA.

The proposed design will provide a café and dining space within the new extension, with a new publicly accessible toilet at ground floor and back of house space in the basement. Planning and listed building consent application will be submitted in November 2019, and work is expected to commence in January 2021.

 

551B High Road (formally the old Tottenham Brewery)

The vision is to deliver enhanced workspace including improvements to the existing ground floor and the creation of additional commercial floor area to support local businesses. The project has £625k of capital funding secured from the GLA.

The ambition of the project is for the ground floor of 551B and accompanying green yard to become an anchor for the local community and a semi-public space for dining and events. The aspiration for the additional floor(s) is to offer affordable workspace targeting local businesses and aspiring local entrepreneurs. The surrounding yards, both north and south, offer opportunities for growing, volunteering and socialising.

Part of this project includes the development and piloting of a new ‘Social Value Lease’- an innovative approach to commercial asset management that maximises public assets and increases the importance of social value by offering a 35% discount on market rent in return for delivery of social value outcomes.

The project is currently in the design stages, with the Council reviewing options for quantum of development on the site, to ensure that proposals preserve and enhance the heritage setting of the site. The Regeneration Team is currently developing the brief for the site, to understand the most viable use.  As part of wider strategy for Morrison Yard, there is a proposal to create a sheltered space to host events and space hire for local community groups and community activities.  The delivery of the space is a key opportunity for contributing to the project’s ambitions for local commissioning – creating employable skills for people in Bruce Grove, encouraging local residents to get involved in the design and construction process.

A planning application submission will be made in January 2020

 

The Trampery

The Trampery, 639 Tottenham High Road, is a Grade II listed heritage asset. Following substantial fire damage after the riots in 2011, the building was acquired by the Greater London Authority (GLA) and refurbished in 2013 to provide affordable office space, shared workspace, meeting spaces, a cafe, space for the borough's voluntary sector and council office space. The Trampery took over operation of the building in 2018. The Council has secured £350k of GLA grant funding towards the project. This refurbishment project aims to deliver:

Phase 1

·       140sqm of additional accessible and flexible drop in workspace
·       improved facilities for members
·       space for the business support activities including a seminar room

·       a new open and more active frontage onto the High Road

Phase 2

·       significant investment into the kitchen space to provide a shared commercial grade kitchen for local F&B microbusinesses.

·       ideas for the possible activation of external spaces including the wide pavement to the front of the building, the rear car park, and link to the ‘Tottenham Living Room.’

The target date for the planning and listed building application submissions are February 2020, with a start on site date of November 2020.

 

Tottenham Green (Phase 2)

The project scope will extend from Town Hall Approach Road to Clyde Road Bridge on Clyde Road. The public realm improvements will consist of the following main improvements:

·       an enlarged Marcus Garvey Library Garden that will be double the size than at present. Improvements within the garden will include sensory planting, informal play and an outdoor reading room with seating
·       creation of a new public square between Marcus Garvey Library, Ambitious college and Bernie Grant Arts Centre but reducing the size of the current Bernie Grant Art Centre car park
·       creation of new footways on an east-west axis through the site leading to Clyde Road bridge
·       improved lighting throughout the space, this includes up-lighting of assets such as the existing chimney stack and to both existing mature trees and proposed feature trees
·       new feature signage will be installed for the Bernie Grant Art Centre along with new wayfinding signage to other destinations within the project site
·       soft planting will include feature rain gardens and new trees to green the route
·       public artwork for new crossing leading to Clyde road bridge and on the bridge itself

·       new CCTV cameras

Work is expected to start in Spring 2020.

 

Tottenham Hale

Construction is progressing on One Station Square, Hale Works, Hale Wharf, and construction work has recently commenced on Berol Yard, Ashley Road.

Chesnut Road (Phase 1)

The work included resurfacing the existing cycle and pedestrian route, adding natural play features including a serpent sculpture and a scooter track as well as rain gardens and an outdoor gym.

Tottenham Hale Station

TfL has announced that the works to the upgrade to the station are delayed by a year to December 2020.  The works include:

·       delivering an integrated transport station.
·       extending the London Underground ticket hall to create an enlarged concourse which will reduce crowding and queuing
·       providing additional retail space

·       providing a transfer slab for the delivery of homes above the station

Negotiations are continuing with TfL, TFT and National Rail to identify the funding gap and deliver the link bridge as the preferred option.

Residents feedback

The Tottenham Hale Commonplace Tool (https://th.commonplace.is/) provides local residents, businesses, cyclists and other commuters with up-to-date information on each development site progress and any impact of works on traffic including diversions in place. Residents can use this tool to provide feedback and comments as well as reporting any problems which will be reviewed and followed up in a timely fashion.

 

North Tottenham

Tottenham Heritage Initiative (THI)

The scheme was designed to improve the shopfronts of Georgian and Victorian buildings along the High Road. It provides an opportunity for local residents to learn about and understand the heritage of their area. The scheme also aimed to enhance the local economy and protect local jobs (particularly during closure of Spurs).

Fourteen historic properties were selected. The project is in its final stages and will deliver a further four shopfront improvements in north Tottenham; this is due to commence in January 2020 and completed by June 2020.

Further public realm improvements planned as part of works will include a mural/ art commission for flank wall alongside a shop. More information about THI can be found on their website (https://tottenham.london/hr).

 

Productive Valley Fund

The Productive Valley Fund (PVF) is a new £2.7 million flexible loan fund. The fund is available to small to medium sized industrial estate based businesses operating in the Upper Lee Valley area (Enfield, Haringey and Waltham Forest), or looking to relocate to areas including:

·       Blackhorse Lane

This is My Story - Celebrating 60 years in the UK

 

·        Monday 28 October, 12.15pm

 

 

Join Tottenham resident Ruth Hutchinson as she tells her own life story, in conversation with Deborah Hedgecock (curator, Bruce Castle Museum). Ruth arrived in the UK from Jamaica in 1959 to be a nurse. Starting her training on 9 November 1959, it was to last for four years. The expectation of her family was for Ruth to then return to the Caribbean – but things turned out differently and she stayed here.

 

Come and hear Ruth’s story over the past 60 years and celebrate with her – from nurse to nursery manager, her activism and campaigning and now her active retirement working with and enjoying her art, music and poetry.

 

A small exhibition of Ruth’s art will also be on display

 

Doors open 12 noon. Refreshments available

A Special Event - Celebrate the end of Black History Month in Haringey at Bruce Castle

Talking About Textiles: Celebrating the Crafting Genius of Althea McNish

A panel discussion led by Rose Sinclair, Goldsmiths College

Thursday 31 October

    • From 6pm - A Musical Celebration and Welcome – a chance to see the current exhibitions at Bruce Castle for Black History Month, with wonderful music from Haringey Young Musicians and Peter Desmond, and refreshments
    • At 6.45 – 7.05pm – Welcome and Speeches
    • At 7.30pm - Talking About Textiles: Celebrating the Crafting Genius of Althea McNish

Marking the end of Black History Month in Haringey, come along to this special evening at Bruce Castle where we can celebrate the young and emerging talents of Haringey Young Musicians and honour our very own internationally-renowned Windrush generation legend from Tottenham - Althea McNish.

Althea
            McNish - group of textiles at Bruce Castle MuseumAlthea McNish (external link) is a living icon in the world of textiles. Since she started designing over sixty years ago, her designs have graced a myriad of spaces.

 

Althea made Tottenham her home. She is regarded as part of the Windrush Generation, and as such her contribution to the design culture and couture of British textile design, and beyond in the wider arts is being constantly being reassessed and brought to the fore.

 

Talking about Textiles: Celebrating The Crafting Genius of Althea McNish is a panel discussion and presentation led by Rose Sinclair of Goldsmiths College (external link), with up-and-coming fashion designer Marquel Williams, from Tottenham. It celebrates not only the work of Althea McNish located at Bruce Castle Museum, but also those inspired by her work. In this presentation and discussion, we seek to look at the place of textiles through the black British design and female lens, and ask questions of the design icon Althea McNish. We also seek to ask what is it to craft and design as a black woman and what are the legacies of Althea’s work in the 21st century?

All welcome.

 

Hope to see you at Bruce Castle

MAN ON THE MOON BY KEISHA THOMPSON

7 November

Using her unconventional relationship with her father, poet and storyteller Keisha Thompson explores the impact that mental health can have on the family dynamic, particularly within the context of the Black British experience. Keisha communicates with her reclusive dad through books, letters and symbols. But when the letters stop coming she is forced to venture into his world. This truth-infused narrative sees the protagonist follow a trail of breadcrumbs that lead her to a number of check-points: cultural displacement, religious confusions, political paranoia, misplaced masculinity and more.
