Although we recognise that the Hornsey Depot site has been neglected for far too long, we have strong objections to the current supermarket-led plans and designs. They show no regard for the Hornsey High Street Conservation Area, and the bulldozing of the Hornsey Baths and Washhouses building to create a 3-lane car-park access and delivery road is a highly contested act of unnecessary destruction. We urge the developers and planners to reconsider this and work to conserve and restore this heritage asset, taking account of Haringey and National Policies to prevent the loss of this cherished historic building.
The iconic and much-loved view of Alexandra Palace framed above the Baths Building, which would be obliterated by the development, is part of our social fabric and identity. The view from across the High Street takes in Grade II listed buildings, nationally listed structures and buildings of local significance. It is part of what makes Hornsey unique.
We object to the fact that the required turning circle of
excessively large Sainsbury's delivery vehicles is seen as more
important than local quality of life, and we demand that the
driving force for this development is reversed - from the interests
of Sainsbury's alone to the interests of local people who care
about our environment and its future.
