The Pre-Qualification Questionnaire (PQQ) is the first stage in Haringey’s process for selection of a preferred bidder for Hornsey Town Hall. The successful entrants through to the second stage were notified yesterday, it seems.

Below is a timeline that lays out our understanding of the process deadlines – the game is truly afoot now. We anticipate that our engagement with bidders will become rather more serious in the coming days/weeks, and in light of that we hope to host an open meeting soon where we can lay out what we’ve learned and what the state of play looks like at this juncture.
