    The WCC continues to fight for a fairer future and has received planning permission for a sustainable, community-led development of the Wards Corner Site. So far we have detailed plans for the indoor market and corner store. In the long term we will work on the other three corners of the Wards site to restore and improve this town centre that has been neglected for over forty years by Transport for London and Haringey Council.C

    ChannelWe still owe £29k for legal fees for putting our case at the inquiry into the Compulsory Purchase Order. We are gradually paying it back but it's taking a long time. There is no legal aid for such work. Our crowdfunder is still open at tinyurl.com/savewcc We raised the first £20k for the research before the CPO hearing, the rest is the cost incurred at the inquiry - and is from special concessionary rates from our lawyers. We were opposed by two QCs who are on £1000 an hour, paid for by Grainger and the council (ie council tax payers)

    The Grainger plan is not just for the market. Their plan encompasses West Green Rd, Suffield Rd, and Seven Sisters Rd. This has meant evictions for all those living on this site. These evictions have been badly executed and has resulted in some shocking stories of cruelty and insensitivity against single mothers, refugees, and vulnerable people. This is social injustice of the highest order.

    _Compulsory Purchase Order (CPO)
    The Compulsory Purchase Order was served by the council, in order to force the sale of the site and allow Grainger to commence demolition. This CPO inquiry finished its three-week hearing in July and the result will be available in six to nine months after this. This was a very costly process and therefore was a very unbalanced tribunal. But with our limited resources, we put up an excellent defence which involved the backing from an eminent artist and the support of the United Nations. We have someone who wishes to take over the lease for the building and the market, but Transport for London and the Council are refusing to cooperate.
    We still owe money to the legal team and are in urgent need of funds. We have already raised over £20,000, but need much more to cover the legal cost of the CPO. You can donate via this crowd funding site:

    Update on Seven Sisters Market
    Grainger would have you think that the Seven Sisters Market is in safe hands and that it will be rehoused in their plan. This could not be further from the truth. Grainger have employed a market manager who is working hard at getting rid of the market by pricing out the current traders. At present, he is hiking up their utility bills and then serving eviction notices. Transport for London refused to give the market lease to the traders, despite their higher offer. Our barrister proved that the market cannot survive this and the two relocations and the future rent rises. Grainger will then be free to obtain a bigger return from this valuable site.
    The Community Plan
    We do have an alternative community plan to restore this building and preserve the market. Go to Community Plan in sidebar on the right >>> and click on WARDS CORNER COMMUNITY PLAN for further information. We are currently working on updating the plan as it ran out of time.
    The Bigger Picture
    The Grainger plan is not just for the market. Their plan encompasses West Green Rd, Suffield Rd, and Seven Sisters Rd. This has meant evictions for all those living on this site. These evictions have been badly executed and has resulted in some shocking stories of cruelty and insensitivity against single mothers, refugees, and vulnerable people. This is social injustice of the highest order.

    The WCC continues to fight for a fairer future and has received planning permission for a sustainable, community-led development of the Wards Corner Site. So far we have detailed plans for the indoor market and corner store. In the long term we will work on the other three corners of the Wards site to restore and improve this town centre that has been neglected for over forty years by Transport for London and Haringey Council.
