In advance of the Hornsey Town Hall sale we have been working for months to put ourselves in a position where
- We have a mandate to represent the community
- We have assembled the knowledge and expertise, and have learned the lessons from previous initiatives, to build a project that meets all Haringey’s objectives
- We have created the Hornsey Town Hall Community Interest Company to promote a community solution in partnership with developers
We have formulated both a plan A and a plan B. Given the way the world works, there’s every chance we’ll need plan Q as well. Continue reading “Meeting of Community Groups and businesses reinforces HTHAS mandate”

This article on the Huffington Post about Daniella Maria’s art installation in Hornsey Town Hall neatly sums up the state of play at our iconic landmark:
Built in 1935 to house the local council, it is an incredible example of modernist architecture, stripped of the fripperies and classicism of Victoriana and built to embody civic pride and hope. Ironically, after the council moved out in 1966, this robustly municipal building saw years of closure and broken promises about opening it up for public use.
Today, it couldn’t be more different. The town hall is full of the hum and excitement of art, music, theatre, dance and workshops, and for local people, it still feels thrilling to be able to just walk in and access their local architectural heritage.
