MP for Hornsey and Wood Green
Liberal Democrat councillors in Alexandra have met with local residents, traders and Haringey Council officers to establish a working group to secure much needed improvements to The Triangle, N22.
The Triangle, sited at the junction of Palace Gate Road and Crescent Road in Alexandra ward, is a small open space that has been badly neglected by Haringey Council over the years. Ward councillors have been working hard with residents and traders for some time to convince Haringey to invest in improving the area.
Following a successful bid for funding from the Muswell Hill Area Assembly’s community project fund last year, draft consultation plans have been drawn up, largely based on feedback received through previous consultation processes undertaken by ward councillors.
The plans, displayed previously at the recent Muswell Hill Area Assembly meeting, include proposals to upgrade the site in two phases over a 2 year period to include planting of new trees, resurfacing of the area, introduction of hanging baskets, flower tubs, etc. The working group will work closely with all interested parties to ensure that the final plans meet with widespread support.
Lib Dem ward councillors David Beacham and Wayne Hoban have welcomed the establishment of the working group. They are hopeful that strong community support for the project will transform the Triangle.
Cllr Beacham comments:
“The meeting was highly productive and I am delighted that we have established a working group that draws upon all interested parties within the local community.”
Cllr Hoban adds:
“This is the first step but the project is so much easier with the full support of so many parts of the community.”
