    Hi, I am doing a geography research project for a level about the Finsbury Park redevelopment and wondered if you could answer some questions. It would be a great help if you could!

    I am a previous resident I am not a resident 0-5 years 5-10 years 10-15 years 15 years or more

    3) If not, what would you say you use the area for (name all that apply)
    Transport Work Shopping Culture Sport Outdoor activities Other

    In your opinion, what word or phrase best describes Finsbury park?

    How could Finsbury park be improved?
    Better infrastructure More efficient tube station More shops/ leisure activities Other (please say)

    What would you say is the best feature of Finsbury park?

    Do you feel safe in the area? (on a scale from 1 to 10)

    Do you feel the area is very polluted?
    Somewhat Yes No

    Hi Arkady, I just wondered whether you are/were you into Citadel Miniatures? I recognise that Ultramarine insignia. I had a not insubstantial Dark Angels army back in the day :)

    Hello Arkady and a very happy New Year to you!<div><br></div><div>Arkady, I wanted to pass something by you for approval or not...</div><div><br></div><div>As you may or may not no, I have been running a secret supper club in Finsbury Park called Clandestinos for 5 years now and about to start up a new vegetarian one called Sweet Pea. In the summer I even did a little pop outside Munever's tailor shop on Fonthill Road.  What was really nice is that it brought neighbours together who came down and had a coffee and cake with us.</div><div><br></div><div>I would like to list the supper club dates on the forum as it would be nice to actually meet some of the people on SGO but also something different for those who might be interested.</div><div><br></div><div>I wanted to know if this would be allowable and if so which category is best to list and please let me know if I need to pay a listing fee?  Your thoughts and advice are greatly appreciated.</div><div><br></div><div>I also give a percentage of the profit to a charity so it's not all about business as usual.</div><div><br></div><div>Thank you,</div><div><br></div><div><img src=""><br></div>

    Hi Arkady, I have already raised it with the Committee and they are adamant that they have 'carefully considered' the application. There is still time to change it as the planning officer is off on long term sick and the decision is now not due to be made until 21st February. If you go to the application for 96 Stapleton Hall Road and have a look at all the neighbours' comments, some of which lay out the conservation issues, and then look at the really hurried and ill considered, scrappy CAAC response you will see what I mean!!! I am particularly upset because I took the time to show one of the members the back of the terrace and I could see she was not listening. Her eyes glazed over and she did not take any notes. I would like your genuine opinion after viewing the consultation responses. CAAC got involved in the overlooking aspects which are Nimby, but not the more strategic conservation issues and I am perplexed.
