Will you agree to meet with representatives of the London’s Latin community during Amigo month to discuss matters of concern, especially relating to developments at Seven Sisters?

In February this year the Secretary of State confirmed a CPO relating to the Seven Sisters regeneration scheme, which includes the indoor market known as the Latin Village. A claim challenging this decision was recently heard on the 8 and 9 October. In view of the current legal proceedings I think it would be inappropriate for me to discuss the developments at Seven Sisters.

The Latin Village is unique and I am pleased the Seven Sisters regeneration programme includes providing the indoor market traders with a new home on the same site it occupies now. If and when the scheme goes ahead, I encourage the council to do all it can working with the traders to make the new market just as unique.
