Haringey

Wood Green

Location: Haringey
Client: Haringey Council

Between 14th February and 28th April 2017, Haringey Council ran a public consultation on the draft version of the Wood Green Area Action Plan (AAP). This document, once adopted by Haringey Council members, will set out the planning rules that the Council will follow when determining planning applications in Wood Green in the future.

Our role

We worked with officers from Haringey Council to involve as many local people and groups in the consultation process as possible, to listen to gather their feedback and report it to Haringey Council and in public. All of the summaries of consultation responses were included in our public report, with Council responses and actions, and are included in the latest version of the AAP document completed by Haringey Council. Over 1,000 people and organisations provided feedback on the plans for Wood Green, and more than 6,500 people viewed the consultation material online or at an event or public exhibition of the plans – just under a third of the total population of Wood Green. Read our report.

We are now consulting local disabled people to find ways to make the Wood Green area accessible for everyone.
