Stacks Image 1409851
Because the demolition of the old school buildings has been held up by unexpected site conditions, plans for Whitehall Park School to hand over buildings in September is likely to be delayed. Consequently WPS have arranged a meeting where representatives from the School, BPET, EFA and ExtraSpace Solutions will be on hand to provide an update. Tuesday 21st June, 7pm at the School. More details in their recent Newsletter.

Parkland Walk Construction

Stacks Image 240513
There is a new application to conduct construction work using Parkland Walk as access for earth moving equipment and other heavy vehicles. All those who value the tranquillity of Parkland Walk might want to read this and object to the planning application (preferably by April 5th). Objections can be submitted via the Haringey Council Planning Services Portal. Read Friends of Parkland Walk’s objection. There is also a petition against the application. Even Jeremy Corbyn has lent his name to the objections (see here).

Facebook Group

Our Facebook group is a forum for local news and information, communication between residents, recommendations, sharing and other fun things. It replaces the website forums, blog and local traders list, which are seldom used and, in the case of the latter, difficult to keep current and accurate. To join up go to facebook.com/groups/whitehallpark/ or click the Facebook icon at the top of this page.
Articles from What’s New that are time-expired but might still be of relevance can be found on the ARCHIVE page.
