The Boundary Commission proposes adding Stroud Green Ward to Tottenham constituency. Any residents of our Ward who either agree or disagree with the proposals should respond to their public consultation by 5 December.
Thanks CliveHow do you define residents :-)
Residents are those who live in the Ward of Stroud Green. Or, those who are (or should be) on the electoral roll and who, when voting in council elections, vote for councillors in Stroud Green Ward.
This is the ward: Pretty much all of the Haringey side of Stroud Green, plus Hornsey Vale.

Re: 2013 Review of Parliamentary constituencyboundaries
At a recent meeting of the above-mentionedresidents' association I was asked to submit our opposition to the BoundaryCommission's proposal to move Stroud Green ward from the Parliamentaryconstituency of Hornsey & Wood Green to Tottenham for the following reasons:
Although last week's meeting onlyrepresented a small percentage of the total number of local members, it was100% unanimous in its agreement to oppose the BCE proposal. In my capacity as chair of theorganisation I can also state that I have spoken to many residents and receivedemails confirming that the greater majority wholly agrees with the motion ofthe meeting.
The Police obviously treat SG and Hornsey as one.

“Sgt Steve Whiting from Stroud Green will similarly take on extra duties in charge of Hornsey”

That's new though Ali. That consolidation is happening because they're reducing the total number of teams.
Many thanks for that Clive. I agree with SGRAs conclusions, though the one about parish boundaries can only affect a tiny percentage of the population.
I know that but it shows they consider them to be linked – re-enforces the argument about physical separation from Tottenham but not Hornsey
I think It's a small point the revised police coverage, but not a bad one and I've passed it on to the SGRA chair.
A key issue with putting Stroud Green into Tottenham Const. is the difficulty for mobility impaired getting to any surgeries.However, I'm not sure about putting Noel Park in Tottenham. I don't think splitting up Wood Green (the shopping centre which is definted as a Metropolitan Centre would be looked upon kindly.
OK, so the railway line makes a neat boundary, but the rest of this is complete nonsense. As a resident of Stroud Green, I want it noted that I have no problem whatsoever with moving into Tottenham constituency, largely because I am not a snob!
I recently had a so-called questionnaire through my door from the Lib Dems asking me to join their campaign against transferring Stroud Green from Hornsey and Wood Green consitituency to Tottenham.
Presumably as the SG ward has recently elected Lib Dem councillors I presume that they are worried that the loss of 'their' voters to be swallowed up by Labour's big majority in Tottenham would leave them vulnerable in the new formation that will include most of the remaining Hornsey and Wood Green constituency.
This reorganisation comes from the daft idea that we need less democracy by reducing the number of MPs from 650 to 600. It means bigger constituencies with more electors. The Lib Dems signed up to this when they demanded the voting referendum from the Tories. You reap what you sow.
It would seem that the revised proposals no longer give Stroud Green to Tottenham: http://assets.boundarycommissionforengland.independent.gov.uk/proposals/111 North Thames/Hornsey and Wood Green BC.pdfProbably moot now of course.
Islington's Hillrise ward ('Crouch Hill') would be incorporated into Hornsey & Wood Green in this revised proposal. Makes me wish that Tollington Ward would be too, which would unite most all of Stroud Green in a single constituency.
