“I’ve always said I want to see the community at the heart of any redevelopment of Hornsey Town Hall. It’s fantastic to see the vibrant arts scene that has developed from there and it’s important that it’s safeguarded long into the future. It is really useful that the Appreciation Society have produced a set of Principles that will guide them in their discussions with developers. It helps put flesh on Haringey’s stated ambition for Community Access as well as outlining a way to achieve a long term, sustainable future for the Town Hall and square.”
We had the public meeting in the Supper Room at HTH last week to try and get some consensus around what a set of guiding principles for HTHAS and the CIC might look like. The discussion was lively and varied, and we think we’ve distilled it into a set of “Principles” and “Aspirations” that represents the fundamentals of everyone’s comments and concerns.
We believe this list presents a set of core fundamentals with which HTHAS/CIC can work on the community’s behalf.
