Support Forum Application

Points you might want to make in your email:

  • You agree that setting up the Crouch End Neighbourhood Forum will benefit Crouch End and its community
  • You agree that the proposed boundary makes sense
  • You agree that the consultation was inclusive
  • You must include your address and postcode

You’ll see notices like this one on lampposts across Crouch End.

Help write the neighbourhood plan!
Next, we’ll be researching  the policy areas below, then talking to as many people as possible for views on how they should develop in the future.We’ll use this feedback to write the policies in the Crouch End Neighbourhood Plan.

  • Community services – facilities, health, education
  • Business and leisure – shopping, business, employment, art and culture, traffic and transport
  • Public realm and environment – public, open and green spaces, streets, landscaping, sustainability
  • Planning and development – design, heritage, housing, land use, active planning applications and policy

Are you interested in any of these areas in particular? Want to get involved with researching, contact us.

Current Issues Group
As well as the policy areas mentioned, we also have a Current Issues Group. This meets monthly and will be looking at immediate issues in Crouch End that we want to have a say on, and that can’t be delayed till the detailed Neighbourhood Plan policies have been written, which could take a year or so.Things that the CIG is looking at currently are:

  • Current planning applications
  • Town centre and local businesses

CENF is also represented on the Hornsey Town Hall Appreciation Society, which is awaiting the publication of the OJEU procurement papers in the next few days which signals the start of the sale of the town hall and green. And a final reminder about the petition.

Show your support for your Forum!
We carried out a survey earlier this year, and here’s a blog which sets out what you told us you like about Crouch End. We hope you still like the Neighbourhood Forum and now that Haringey Council has begun the statutory consultation period on the Forum and Area applications anyone living in Crouch End can let the council know if they support or object to us setting up a Neighbourhood Forum and the area that we are trying to designate as the Crouch End Neighbourhood Area.
Let’s show Haringey the level of support we have from the good folk of Crouch End – usually they only hear when people object! So if you could find a few minutes to tell the council that you support our application, that would be great. Email [email protected]The deadline is 27th November, with the final decision being made at the December Cabinet meeting.
And to follow up on those ‘likes’ you can reply to the item on OpinioN8, and support one of them by signing the Hornsey Town Hall petition. More analysis of the survey questionnaires to follow.
We’re always on the lookout for other people who want to get involved with writing the neighbourhood plan. We meet monthly so do get in touch if you want to come along.
