    Story

    The LB of Haringey is intending to sell the Keston Centre site to private property developers.The proposal is to build 126 residential units (4 3-5 storey blocks and 16 3 storey town houses) plus a replacement community centre. This development is directly adjacent to the much loved and well used Downhills Park and will dominate it. The development even proposes using part of the park to widen the access to the site.
    The local community has formed the Keston Action Group as it believes the height and density of this development will have a detrimental impact on the park and the local community, being totally out of character with the surrounding neighbourhood.
    We have been advised (by barristers working pro bono) that we have a solid case against this plan but to stand the best chance of persuading Haringey's Planning Committee to ensure any development respects its surroundings, we need to hire experts. We want to hire a planning specialist and also a heritage consultant to undertake a survey on the existing Edwardian building.

    We hope that you will be able to support us to protect the neighborhood and Downhills Park from this large scale development
