Have your say on the future of Swain’s Lane in Highgate

Campaigners fighting to save a popular parade of Highgate shops from demolition, are keen to meet with neighbours and visitors to the area to find out their views on the proposals.

The group, called Save Swain’s Lane, will be discussing plans presented in July by the owner, the Earl of Listowel, to knock down the shopping parade and replace it with two blocks of flats and a supermarket, rumoured to be a Waitrose branch.

The campaigners want to find out what locals and visitors would most like to see on the site.

Anyone who would like to get involved and voice their opinion should visit the Save Swain’s Lane stall outside the parade of shops, in Swain’s Lane, on Saturday October 13 from 10.30am.

Alternatively visit the group’s Facebook page called Save Swains Lane and website SaveSwainsLane.com
