Many thanks to all of you who emailed Haringey last week. Our anger, I’m afraid, has been ignored.
Papers for next Tuesday’s Cabinet meeting still untruly refer to our consultation signatures as a ‘petition’. If the only way to persuade Haringey otherwise is via the Planning Inspectorate, so be it.
For now, it’s time to let them know in person that we’re not going to sit by while they try to steamroll over us and the facts.
Your support through this exhausting journey has been wonderful. There are about to be two key Haringey meetings in quick succession – if you can get to one or both, you know we’ll really appreciate it.
First, it's next week, at 6.30pm on Tuesday 22 January. Second, it's the following week, at 7pm on Thursday 31 January. Both are at Wood Green Civic Centre (N22 8ZW).
We assume that Haringey Cabinet will ignore the advice of its own Regulatory Committee when it meets at 6.30pm on Tuesday 22 January and leave Pinkham Way in the North London Waste Plan (NLWP).
The letter we’ve had detailing the Council’s reasoning for this likely decision is nonsense and will be torn to shreds in any formal examination.
If the Cabinet vote to keep the site in the waste plan, it'll then go before full Council in their meeting at 7pm on Thursday 31 January. We're sure those in opposition to the site staying in the NLWP will have something to say on the night.
To have you in the viewing gallery will be a huge boost.
