Delivering Tottenham’s future

The transformation of Tottenham’s High Road West – with thousands of new homes, new jobs, new community facilities and a landmark civic square designed in partnership with local residents – could soon be underway following years of community participation in shaping the ambitious plans.

Haringey Council’s Cabinet will next week (Tuesday 12 September) discuss a recommendation to choose regeneration experts Lendlease as the preferred bidder to deliver local people’s ambitions for the area - informs Council of Haringley.

The announcement follows more than five years of community engagement and consultation, which has seen residents’ vision placed at the heart of a masterplan for the area through a Resident Charter and Residents’ Design Panel and design guide. Residents have also been involved in the 18-month competitive procurement process to select Lendlease as the preferred bidder to take the scheme forward.

The importance of the High Road West scheme, which covers the area opposite the new Tottenham Hotspur Stadium development, has also been highlighted by the Mayor of London, who has contributed £62million funding to support the ambitious scheme as part of the wider regeneration of north Tottenham.

Highlights include:

  • More than 2,500 homes, with at least 750 affordable homes
  • 191 high-quality, safe replacement homes for existing council tenants and resident leaseholders, meeting the aspirations of their Resident Charter
  • A cutting edge new library and learning centre
  • A refurbished community hub with new facilities at the Grange
  • A new civic square for community activities and cultural events, flanked by new shops, restaurants and cafes
  • New green spaces including gardens, children’s play area and outdoor gym
  • More than £10million social and economic support for businesses and residents
  • Investment in the town centre and community events
  • Thousands of construction jobs and hundreds of new jobs following development
  • A new industrial space to support businesses from the existing Peacock Industrial Estate

It is proposed that Haringey Council takes on the ownership of replacement housing for council tenants once it is built, keeping the new homes under council management, in line with existing residents’ wishes.

Cllr Alan Strickland, Haringey Council Cabinet Member for Regeneration and Housing, said:

“We’ve been clear from the start that residents’ ambitions must be at the heart of change in Tottenham, and I’m delighted that their vision and priorities have shaped the really exciting plans for High Road West. I’m delighted that this development agreement will mean work can get underway to bring that vision to life.

“The High Road West scheme is central to our regeneration aims for Tottenham – bringing new homes, jobs, fantastic community space and world-class leisure, retail and community facilities for local people to be proud of.”
