Dear Haringey Borough Council,
I am writing with reference to High Road West Regeneration Scheme and the proposed resident ballot in late 2019 on the Love Lane Estate is demolished to facilitate the High Road West Regeneration Scheme to go ahead.
We understand that on 18 July 2018, the Mayor of London announced that any landlord seeking Greater London Authority (GLA) funding for an estate regeneration project - which involves the demolition of social homes - must demonstrate that they have secured resident support for their proposals through a ballot.
We note that the ballot is not open to the small business community members (leaseholder and freeholders) on the High Street and to Peacock Industrial Estate members. The ballot is only open to social housing tenants.
HRW is not only proposing to demolish social housing estate but also several buildings owned by the small business community and the whole Peacock Industrial Estate.
Irrespective of GLA's guideline on this local ballot issue, taking into consideration the Equality Act 2010, confirm the grounds for excluding all the business units, freehold owners and leaseholders from this ballot.
