While we wish everyone reading this a happy and healthy 2023, the Highgate Society recognizes that it will be a very difficult year for many.
Whether it affects individuals worried about heating and food costs, or groups like ours facing high building costs, great challenges lie ahead.
Our community project group shows the value of being out in the streets and open spaces. According to the feedback, many people who saw the volunteers picking up litter thanked them and even joined the team.
With the help of a guerrilla gardening group, Milton residents have successfully organized and planted a dilapidated street space. Contact us for support and advice on setting up a local group. Many people feel healthier, healthier and happier when they work with neighbors to improve their neighborhoods.
Highgate has many steep slopes and narrow alleys. Elderly people, people with disabilities and families with young children have to use different modes of transportation such as buses and cars.
Transport and transport change will require real consultation, including a deep local knowledge and recognition from Congress of the strong interest of residents and businesses in supporting local shops that rely on transit trade. is required.
We are aware that there is a movement to provide more housing across London. This can lead to overdevelopment.
If the council relies on information provided by developers, it is important that relevant officers also visit the site.
Again, in-depth local knowledge is important and Shepherd’s Cottage at Townsend Yard is a prime example of this in complex protected areas where structures are listed. Lack of local knowledge can and has caused significant errors.
Our planning group is at the heart of The Society, and we are busier than ever to ensure that what is being built is added, not undermined the Highgate environment.
The Highgate Society is always welcoming new volunteers. Together we can meet the needs, understand and help more of Highgate’s residents.
