A new development proposed for Hobart Corner, New Southgate, would consist of two high-rise residential blocks with commercial spaces on the ground floor. The new buildings, providing 183 new homes, will replace the gasholder which was demolished in September, after serving as a local landmark since the 1930s. City & Suburban Homes hope to submit a planning application this winter. In the meantime, there is an online consultation to gauge local opinion.

Southgate District Civic Voice's latest newsletter includes photographs taken by Colin Barratt during the demolition process. SDCV has arranged with the trustees of New Southgate Millennium Green for the installation of an interpretation board on the Green, explaining the history of the gasholder and associated gasworks. A finial from the top of one of the gasholder columns will be installed next to the interpretation board.
