Dear All,

Crescent Mews development has now been submitted to the Council and has now been published on the planning portal:

Here: Planning App

There seem to be no/little changes from the public meeting and you have until 5th June to make comments. This planning application should be discussed at a planning committee (and if not, I will ask that it is called in for further scrutiny).

Please let me know if you have any questions and I would encourage as many as possible to have a look and let Hal know your thoughts. 


Best wishes

  • Dear All,

    Regarding the Crescent Mews development - this will now be going to the Planning Committee on 11th November from 7PM. 

    There have been a large number of new documents uploaded by the Developers - and also a large number of objections (THANK YOU everyone who has submitted theirs). There are some excellent objections, and I recommend that you have a read through. 

    The Council's Design Officer has written very favourably (and in many cases incorrectly and subjectively) about the development. 

    After a number of complaints, the Council have agreed to continue to take objections up until 8th November to the planning portal, so please have a look at the planning app in the main post - and the reference is HGY/2019/1183.

    Best wishes


  • I have just submitted an objection.

  • DEADLINE! Today is the final day to register your comments on this development.

    • I'll be submitting my objection when I get home from the office!


      ** Planning Committee most likely won't be until after the summer holidays. 

  • Latest email from Kevin Stanford - chair of the Palace Gates Residents' Association:

    Dear All

    Some of you may / may not be aware of the Major Development that is planned for Crescent Mews, N22

    Plans have been submitted for a series of 3 & 4-storey blocks behind Sweet Tree Bakery comprising of 30 residential units

    This is a high density, over development in an area that is already stretched regarding parking provision, accessibility and general well being of the local community. Furthermore, with such a large development it would appear the consultation process has not been carried out in a balanced and appropriate manner. Many residents are completely in the dark that this could be happening on their doorstep

    We have also learned that the proposed properties are already being touted on property websites such as Zoopla – see below

    If you wish to pass comment on the development then please click on the link to the Haringey Planning Portal and submit your thoughts and concerns by clicking on the ‘Comment on Application’ button

    The deadline for comments and objections is JUNE12th

    I will update you on any further news I receive

    Many thanks in advance

  • I've looked at the planning application and the deadline for submitting comments now appears to be 12th June.

  • Thanks.

    I get the impression this development company will keep on submitting applications until they get their way.

    I live directly in front of where this development will take place. The waste water services can barely cope as it is. Most days you can smell the sewers. I can't imagine adding all these extra residential units will be kind to an already strained system. 

    There is such a lack of space to achieve what they want to without completey ruining the immediate area (waste, pollution, dust etc). I can't imagine how noisy the development will be. Plenty of folks with chronic illnesses will probably be affected.

    It does not seem at all safe from a traffic point of view, and traffic issues continue to get worse and worse on Crescent/PGR (I now have to close all my windows during rush "hour" and for a while after at the fumes are just so horribly pungent and unhealthy). 

    I wish this develompent firm would agree to meet local residents and business owners before submitting any future plans. The area is in need of some development. It looks very tatty indeed. 

    It is really important to stress that the current properties including mine move significantly when heavier/freight trains use the line nearby. How can we be assured that the added stress of the build, and future additional  residents, assuming all the units are filled, create further subsidence problems.   


  • Thanks for posting, Nick. I've had a look at the supporting information on the planning portal and there's so much, yet I still didn't get a sense of what the overall plan will look like. I'll have another go at seeing if I can pick that piece of info out.

    • Hi Susie,

      Completely agree - the formatting of the planning application portal is not very helpful! I need to have a proper sit down and work through it. 

      Best wishes
