The Community Plan for the site is not a referable application and as such GLA officers and I have had no involvement in its development or in the arrangement of any meetings.

It is worth pointing out that the original planning application did not replace the market at all and the second iteration included only 12 kiosks for market stalls. However, as a result of my intervention and the negotiations of my officers the current application ensures that the Pueblito Paisa Latin American market is replaced within the development along the Seven Sisters frontage. The floorspace to be re-provided is almost directly comparable and is set out in the same format of an indoor market hall. Additionally the current traders will receive generous compensation and assistance to find a temporary location (s) whilst the site is being developed.
