Ecological value of Pinkham Way site confirmed by ecological studies
over past two years
“A large unlit site ... almost undisturbed ... a rare resource for Haringey ... of high ecological value” (Land Use Consultants)
“considerable conservation value” “it should be an urgent matter to conserve the site" (Edward Milner BSc MCIEEM)
" ‘Wasteland’ habitats … open mosaic habitats are becoming increasingly uncommon within Haringey … the site is of borough importance"
"Plant species recorded at the site – noteworthy for a site of relatively small extent located within inner London”
"A breeding site for no less than 6 notable bird species (UK BAP Priority Species or RSPB Red or Amber Status) as well as slow worms and cinnabar moth caterpillars which are species of Principal Importance" (Huma Pearce BSc MSc MCIEEM & Denis Vickers BSc FLS MCIEEM CBiol, MBS commissioned by PWA)
"A culverted watercourse runs beneath the site, the reinstatement of this watercourse would further enhance the biodiversity value of the site."
