Meeting for Tottenham’s Community Groups

22 Oct

Meeting for Tottenham’s Community Groups
Wednesday Oct 23rd, 7.30pm
Chestnuts Community Centre, N15 5BN
Reps and members of all local groups, and supportive individuals, welcome

Things are moving forward in the long process of building up the Our Tottenham network to encourage and empower Tottenham’s community groups, residents and communities.

In recent weeks
– a number of additional organisations have joined our network, including Tottenham and Wood Green Friends of the Earth, Tottenham Rights, Tottenham Sports Centre, Tottenham Chances, and Growing-In-Haringey
– we have had media publicity speaking up for local people’s interests in the face of ‘top-down’ and controversial development
– we were invited to address London’s Planning Committee to explain our ideas on how local communities can be more involved in decision-making around planning
– North Tottenham High Road traders have spoken out strongly against plans to demolish their area opposite the Spurs ground
– the Wards Corner Community Coalition have now submitted their superb Community Plan to save and improve that threatened area of Seven Sisters

We are currently organising a conference (scheduled for November 23rd) for all Tottenham’s community groups to discuss how we can develop our own positive Community Plans for our neighbourhoods, for contested sites and facilities, and for Tottenham as a whole. We want as many groups as possible to be involved in this very exciting event, so are inviting you to attend our next meeting to discuss the details and arrangements.
