Haringey has included the “Asset of Community Value” status accorded to Hornsey Town Hall in the latest edition of Haringey People and in doing so has re-iterated the importance of community access at the heart of the project.
Ideally we would like the property taken into community ownership via a Community Asset Transfer. Please sign our petition in support of this goal http://opn8.co.uk/Save_HTH
“Community value” status for Homsey Town Hall
Hornsey Town Hall and Square has been designated an asset of community value (ACV) in recognition of its cultural signihcance to Crouch End and Haringey.
Haringey Cumncl confirmed the ACV dasignation following a community nomination.
The status is formal recognition of the community value both of the much loved Grade II* listed Town Hall andthe pubic square and green in frunt of it – and underlines the council’s ongoing commitrnent to preserving the landmark for future generations to enjoy.
Wbrk to find a sustainable future operating model for the Town Hall is continuing, with the council hoping to secure a long-term
lease arrangement with a partner that will take forward refurbishment works to the listed bulding, as well as redevelopment of the rernaining land on the site.
Strict bidding criteria will mean that any proposals that fail to demonstrate community access will not be considered.
