Have your say: Final Draft Boundary Study

Post by fpsg » Tue, Sep 05 2017 21:17 pm

The Boundary Study available for download below is a final draft, for review and comment by the local community, before we submit it to the three local councils for approval.

The final draft was prepared by the Working Group of volunteers, with reference to:
  • Requirements of Section 61G of the Town and Country Planning Act 1990
  • Requirements of Section 5(1) of The Neighbourhood Planning (General) Regulations 2012
  • Relevant Planning Practice Guidance
  • A set of principles developed in consultation with the community
  • A wide range of community engagement, including 1,097 valid responses to a Boundary Survey
  • Feedback from Neighbourhood Planning officers at the three local councils
Please provide any feedback by Wednesday 20 September 2017. However, please note that if you're planning to raise a substantial issue or concern, we'd be keen to understand this sooner rather than later, so that we have the maximum opportunity to consider any changes to the applications.

I've now seen the final draft boundary proposals.
I'm concerned about the inclusion of the park itself for a number of reasons. Firstly, the park is an amenity for communities far wider than those living in Stroud Green and Finsbury Park. The inclusion of it in an area that mostly covers the west and south of the park excludes thousands of people to the north and east. For instance those living on Endymion Road and the Rowley Gardens estate, directly overlooking the park, will not have the same level of influence as those living over on the western boundary of the proposed area; right over at Hornsey Road, almost a kilometre away.
One of the principles stated is that the proposed boundaries do not cut up existing neighbourhoods and adminstrative areas yet the inclusion of the park effectively amputates the whole southern part of Harringay ward.
I support the establishment of the Stroud Green and Finsbury Park neighbourhood but cannot do so while the park itself is within its boundaries.
