Surely Southgate Town Hall was sold ages ago?
Apparently not, it seems, but it is now. Contracts have been exchanged with Hollybrook Homes, and work begins this month on the development of the Town Hall and current car park area to create 37 new flats, some of which will be affordable homes (to use the modern parlance).
The deal has netted Enfield Council £2million in a deal which also provides for the refurbishment of Palmers Green Library and the creation of public space on the corner between the two buildings (surmounted by another clock tower in versions of plans issued earlier this year).
Hollybrook’s signs are already up outside the building.
