The Prince is quite nice and might qualify as a gastropub at a stretch nd the Westbury is a decent local, but I take your point about Spouters, the Goose and the Jolly Angler...

I love the way the brochure says that Wood Green has a "host of spacious gastropubs." Are Wetherspoons and The Goose now considered Gastropubs?

Brilliant, thanks. I'll take a closer look at the planning application this weekend to make sure they're not planning on having poor doors for the affordable housing occupants.

I did. The Planning Application is online here Regarding your questions:

1. looks like it.

2. For 15, I think, but that may include the basement

3. St William say 32.5% (444) will be Affordable homes.

4. It does.

5. Their brochure for the application said the development would have "excellent accessibility without reliance on Piccadilly or Crossrail 2"

6. St William have to submit a feasibility study for the de-culverting of the Moselle by 1 May 2019. Sadly the Council have accepted the water quality test is at European Bathing Standard which few UK rivers, never mind an urban brook susceptible to numerous misconnections, could pass.

On the plus side it looks like we'll get a new park and a more pleasant route to Alley Pally via the Penstock Path...

Couldn't make it sadly, due to work /life. Did anyone else go? 

Looking at the brochure, I noted that

1. They're getting a swimming pool - presumably for residents only, 

2. Do they have planning permission for 14 floors? 

3. I could be missing something but are there any affordable homes at all in the development - I couldn't see any. Definitely didn't spot a reference to social housing. 

4. There are at least five pictures of the late, lamented Hawker Union in the brochure. Unless they know something we don't know, that seems a little disingenuous. 

5. No mention of Crossrail 2,  which I thought was interesting. 

6. Are they deculverting the Moselle after all?
