Save Hornsey Town Hall

Hornsey Town Hall

Please sign our petition below which calls on the Labour-run council to reconsider the decision to lease Hornsey Town Hall to developers who want to build a hotel:

We, the undersigned, support the Lib Dem call to stop Hornsey Town Hall being leased to Labour's chosen developers.

We believe one of the following options for the future of Hornsey Town Hall should be adopted, with the community option being examined first:

1. The local community or a community-led organisation, takes on the Town Hall, ensuring public access to the Hall, Square and Green. 

2. The council uses funds from the capital budget to renovate the Town Hall ensuring public access to the Hall, Square and Green. 

3. The bidding process for Hornsey Town Hall reopens.

(The land to the rear of the hall would be sold for suitable development purposes such as housing, with proceeds being used to pay for essential repairs to the Town Hall)

    I continue to be seriously interested in the future of Hornsey Town Hall and am unhappy at many aspects of how things have developed. I want to put PEOPLE before PROFIT!! I very much doubt that the SEC will be the best guardian of our historic community asset! I remain UNhappy with the way our [Labour] councillors have dealt with its proposed development. I would hope for some form of community trust ownership and guardianship.

    This space is phenomenally valuable to the community. It is vital that such spaces are retained to encourage social cohesion. I have just read that Buckingham Palace is receiving £369 million for renovation. Couldn’t even a tiny bit of this money be used to save HTH?

    I fail to see how an area which is so short of housing and which has limited public transport could possibly benefit from a hotel. I am also disappointed that there has not been a single word about the renovation and the bringing back into use of the art deco theatre which so appealed to the planning sub-committee (on which I sat) when it gave approval to development plans for the site in 2011.

    Sectors of our government seem to want to take everything historical, valuable and beautiful away from our people, and all for their own financial gain! Some of our ancestors played a part in creating, building and loving all the things we cherish in this fabulous country of ours and it’s time that the government starts listening to the people; when we kindly deprecate the devaluing of an historical building, they really should at least try to understand why, and that it’s one of the things that keeps Britain Britain!!
