Monica Feria-Tinta and Tom Leary to act in Public Inquiry on behalf of local community objecting to a £60 m + regeneration plan in Tottenham

This is an archived article, and some links may not work. Contact us if you have any questions.

Monica Feria-Tinta and Tom Leary have been instructed to appear on behalf of the Latin Village/Ward’s Corner traders in Seven Sisters, at a Public Inquiry. The traders, who were recently served Compulsory Purchase Orders (CPOs) by Haringey Council ahead of a controversial planned development that would see the market demolished, are objecting to the proposed Regeneration development by Grainger PLC, which is estimated to be worth in excess of £60million, on a number of grounds, including on human rights grounds.

The Latin Village/Ward’s Corner in Seven Sisters has been home to 60 market stalls since the 1990s and is a fixture in London's Latin American community – one of the capital’s fastest-growing ethnic communities. Its long-running battle to save the market has attracted considerable media attention including from the BBC and CNN and a previous grant of planning permission was quashed by the Court of Appeal in judicial review proceedings in 2010: see R (Harris) v Haringey London Borough Council (Equality and Human Rights Commission intervening) [2010] EWCA Civ 703

The diversity and cultural value of Latin American Seven Sisters market has also been featured in a film and celebrated by designer Martine Rose as the venue to present her latest collection at 2017 Men’s Fashion Week in London.
