Forum Get-together and Drinks Thurs Apr 7 ’22

There will be an informal meeting of Finsbury Park & Stroud Green Neighbourhood Forum on Thursday 7th April at 7pm.

Wine and soft drinks will be available with some nibbles.

There will be a short report from the Steering Group on recent developments (particularly our selection to be a “Design Code Pathfinder” and our developing association with My Place), a chance to ask questions and an informal discussion of the Area and what needs to be changed through our Neighbourhood Plan.

The venue will be SPACE4 on the 2nd floor of Fonthill House, 113-115 Fonthill Road N4 3HH. (Fonthill House is just to the south of the junction of Wells Terrace and Fonthill Road). Ring the buzzer labelled Event Space/Classroom for admission. We are very grateful to Outlandish for letting us use the room.

As covid is still with us and infections are rising we encourage you to wear a mask when you come to the meeting. 

Design Code Pathfinders Participation

We have just been selected to take part in the government’s Design Code Pathfinders project, beating several others from across the country, which gives us a great chance to make a real impact for the better on the local planning process.

We are also kicking off our community engagement phase, where you get to have your say. To lay the groundwork for a comprehensive neighbourhood plan, please help by giving us your opinions in this very short initial online survey:

Over a 12 month period we will work with the government’s Office of Place to develop a design code for Finsbury Park and Stroud Green. This will set detailed requirements for development in the area covering almost everything that we experience living or working in the area.

This is an exciting opportunity although it is a huge extra work load. We would like more members working with us and taking an active role in working on the Design Code project and the Neighbourhood Plan. The only important skills we need are interest and being prepared to work hard!

If you are interested please get in touch!

Finsbury Park Needs You! Please help us to make Finsbury Park/Stroud Green a better place in which to live and work.
