HTHAS have triggered the moratorium period granted by the legislation that describes Assets of Community Value (ACV). This gives the community the right to launch and present a bid for Hornsey Town Hall any time ahead of the deadline of 14 September 2017.

We share LBH’s concerns for the best outcome for the Town Hall. However we live in uncertain times and, having done a considerable amount of preparatory assessment, we feel it only sensible to place this community option on the table should FEC decide that circumstances no longer work for them. In many ways, this is an insurance policy.

You will appreciate that, given the huge public support for the AS, we feel rather obliged to help keep all available options open.

We intend meanwhile to contribute as best we can to FEC’s community consultation and project development.
