Planning Application Submitted For £29M Restoration Of Iconic Hornsey Town Hall Site

News - Hornsey Town Hall
30 April 2018

After a detailed period of local engagement and consultation, Crouch End (FEC) Ltd has submitted plans to restore Hornsey Town Hall. Subject to planning consent, work could begin on site as early as spring 2018.

The proposals will fully restore the Grade II* listed Town Hall and remove it from Historic England’s ‘Heritage at Risk’ register. They will feature a new 57 apartment hotel, arts centre, café and flexible community and events spaces for all to enjoy.

The development also includes 132 new homes and improvements to the public space both in front of the Town Hall and on the wider site with a new public space created named Town Hall Gardens.

The designs for Town Hall Square were chosen by local people and were selected because they reflect the historic aspects of the original square. The new design includes planting, restoration of the old fountain and preservation of all existing trees. There will be the same level of green space as exists today.

The cost of restoring the Town Hall, Broadway Annexe and the improvements to the public realm comes in at nearly £29million with surveyed damage to these buildings worse than originally anticipated. The proposals will also improve accessibility and generate more usable spaces for a better public offer.

John Connolly, Head of UK Development at Crouch End (FEC) Ltd, said: “We have been working tirelessly on this project since the outset and have sought to reflect the views and interests of local people whilst at the same time ensuring our proposals are realistic and will secure the future of the Town Hall.

“We believe our proposals are deliverable with a workable hotel offer and flexible space in the Town Hall for the arts operator to adapt to demand. The Crouch End and wider arts community will be crucial to the success of the variety of uses and vibrancy of the Town Hall and we look forward to announcing the appointment of the operator in August”.

Steeped in history, the Hall was designed in the modernist style by award-winning architect Reginald Uren and completed in 1935. The building was the home of Hornsey Borough Council until 1966 when many administrative functions were moved to Wood Green following the creation of Haringey Council. The Town Hall continued to be used as Haringey offices for a number of years before falling into disrepair.
