The good news is that, following a public examination hearing in August 2016, the Pinkham Way site has been removed from Haringey Council’s Site Allocations Plan because Haringey Council could not justify its inclusion.
However, the dual “SINC/Employment Land” planning designation remains in place and the big push is now on to remove the Employment Land element.
Pinkham Way Alliance have recently responded to proposed modifications to Haringey’s Local Plan documents arising from the August hearing. They argue that as the Council has given no proper justification for retaining the Employment element of the designation, and since the site has remained undeveloped for almost 25 years with no proposal getting remotely near implementation, this element of the designation should now be removed. They also argue that as the site has borough wide environmental value, it needs to be protected.
