HTHT_appendices_211204 – this link, to another part of the 2004 business plan, provides some insight into the previous efforts that have been made by the public to keep the Town Hall in public ownership. Much of what was written is now out of date. Letters of support for a defunct company no longer have any value, and plans for a cinema have been overtaken by events elsewhere in Crouch End. But skip to page 44 of the document and you will find:
- A structural report from MHA – (maybe Michael Hadi Associates?)
- A mechanical and electrical engineering report by Max Fordham (p46)
- A detailed analysis of the costs to carry out the works then considered necessary by Gardiner and Theobald (p54)
It is to be hoped that current efforts can build on some of this work.
