I'm more than slightly alarmed at the Woodgreen AAP (Area Action Plan) now currently includes knocking down all of Caxton rd, and neighbouring houses, to build a pedestrian retail space with a view!

Yes! Including our nice irreplaceable Victorian houses!

Wood Green resident Dave Kingett has issued a heartfelt plea to oppose the possible demolition of Caxton Road, where he lives. The demolition of this street is one of the changes envisaged in the draft Wood Green Area Action Plan being consulted on by Haringey Council (deadline 31st March).

I've been meaning for a few weeks to write something about the Wood Green proposals but haven't found the time. They would sweep away quite a few rather ugly buildings from the 1970s and later (including Shopping City/The Mall) and restore more of a normal street pattern. However, Caxton Road is not one of these monolithic modern buildings, but a residential street of nice old houses. Its demolition is proposed in order to open up a view of Alexandra Palace - but for the residents of Caxton Road these houses are their own little palaces.

There was a report in the Evening Standard this week providing some more context. See

Presumably there will be a CPO to compensate anyone at market levels for the loss of their homes they own?

It would be an injustice and a crime not to offer the home owners CPO compensation. Yet, there is huge amount of emotional trauma for these home owners that do not want to lose their homes.

Actually, we often pass this road to venture for our long walk to into Alexandra Park and these are all solid, very pretty Victorian Houses but extremely run down, the home owners /occupiers should had taken better care of their homes, as they may not had featured Haringey Council's improvement plans. However, it still make no sense in their demolition in order to improve Wood Green's outlook all because Haringey Council once allowed for the monstrosity looking, that is the red brick shopping centre and office blocks to be build in Wood Green. Who were these Haringey Council staff that clearly had a lack of good vision to allow such ugly buildings to be build?

Far better and cheaper to pastel paint the houses in Caxton Road and landscape their front gardens, and certainly as long as the road looks clean and pretty they would actually be a highlight feature to the area.
