BCE-37901 I am a resident in Tottenham and am writing to plead with the boundary commission not to depart from their original plans to retain the Tottenham constituency. I feel strongly that the boundary commission are correct in their analysis and urge them not... 2017-03-23 18:19 View
BCE-37913 I do not want Tottenham to be spilt up. it has quite a particular identity even though it is made up of people from all over the world. it has areas which are quite poor, and a large Black population which needs representing as many people here are poor... 2017-03-23 18:58 View
BCE-37919 As a resident of Tottenham for the last 26 years I would like to register my strong support for the Commission's original proposals for Tottenham. Although Tottenham has more than it's fair share of problems it also has a strong sense of community and... 2017-03-23 19:07 View
BCE-37961 I agree with David Lammy's opposition to the counter-proposals. Tottenham is an area with a clear identity & should continue to exist as a constituency. 2017-03-23 20:49 View
BCE-38003 I believe that the Tottenham constituency should remain as existing and not be split up and merged with other constituencies. It has its own identity which it is important to retain. 2017-03-23 22:12 View
BCE-38369 I fully support your proposal to maintain the Tottenham constituency as it is, with the addition of Stroud Green ward. David Lammy MP has set out a compelling case as to why your proposals should stand and why counter-proposals by the Conservative and... 2017-03-24 18:28 View
BCE-38408 I support David Lammy. We should keep Tottenham together and add Stroud Green. We live in Harringay and our children go to school in Stroud Green and there is a natural overlap between the two areas. 2017-03-24 20:13 View
BCE-38689 I support the Boundary Commission's plans for Tottenham and Stroud Green. Other proposals put forward for Tottenham will create constituencies across council boundaries, making it harder for residents to access help, particularly as these other proposals... 2017-03-25 16:46 View

BCE-39236 I completely support David Lammy's reasoning for adding the ward of Stroud Green to the Tottenham consituency. His reasonings are sound, and as someone who lives in the Harringey area of Tottenham, it would greatly increase our sense of community and... 2017-03-26 20:10 View
BCE-39510 I fully support that Stroud Green should be joined to Tottenham to create that constituency. 2017-03-27 08:17 View
BCE-39523 I disagree almost completely with Mr Lammy's assertions. His references to ancient documents and traditions have long been overtaken by the facts of modern life. He makes a very poosr case for including Stroud Green in Tottenham.

BCE-39527 I agree with our MP that the Boundary Commission's proposal
not to split Tottenham is the right decision for our area.

The other proposals seem, in comparison, to be more disruptive and bring no obvious gain or improvement for the area, and potentially...
