The request was successful.

Dear Haringey Borough Council,
I am writing to make an open government request for all the information to which I am entitled under the Freedom of Information Act 2000.
If this request is too wide or unclear, I would be grateful if you could contact me as I understand that under the Act, you are required to advise and assist anyone making such a request. If any of this information is already in the public domain, please can you direct me to it, with page references and URLs if necessary.
If the release of any of this information is prohibited on the grounds of breach of confidence, I ask that you supply me with copies of the confidentiality agreement and remind you that information should not be treated as confidential if such an agreement has not been signed.
I understand that you are required to respond to my request within the 20 working days after you receive this letter. I would be grateful if you could confirm in writing that you have received this request.
I look forward to hearing from you.

Please provide information about the £1million that the local Councillors say (September / October 2016) will be invested in Hornsey Library (statement 30th September) to include details of
1. where the money will come from and has it been secured within the London Borough of Haringey budget
2. whether that investment is contingent on the preferred bid for HTH being successful
3. whether there have been substantive or preliminary discussions about the likelihood of achieving the necessary planning and listed building consents for the changes necessary in the library

The relevant quote from the councillors' blog https://crouchendlabour.wordpress.com/20... is
"As part of the Council’s capital strategy, the Council will invest £1million refurbish Hornsey Library. As part of this work, there may be an opportunity to look at how some of the underutilised space in the library could be used for this purpose and the Council has already been approached by a local organisation interested in operating workspaces in the library."

Yours faithfully,

Adrian Essex
