It has come to our attention (via a FOI request) that the total capital receipt Haringey expect to receive for the disposal of Hornsey Town Hall, the Square and Green, and the car park with its residential development potential is…..£3 500 000.

One of the big reasons given for going through the whole OJEU tender process was that Haringey were obliged to do so, given the size of the contract on offer – almost £100 000 000.

Three-and-half million pound seems like a pittance.
