Save Latin Village – Meeting

Bernie Grant Arts Centre, Town Hall Approach Rd, London N15 4RX

Meeting to defend Latin Village The market at Wards Corner is a vital community hub for Latin American Londoners. It has been under threat for over 10 years. The Secretary of State is currently considering CPO powers which will potentially allow the developer, Grainger plc, to assemble the final land to begin development. Meanwhile there are serious allegations against the market operator appointed byTfl. Some of these were outlined in a recent Guardian article.

What can we do to ensure that this vital community asset is retained? What are the roles of the various authorities; Tfl, the Mayor of London and Haringey Council? How do we hold them to account?
