Vision for Wood Green and a new consultation

Exciting plans for Wood Green were given a boost last night, as Haringey’s Cabinet agreed on a community-inspired vision for the area’s future and a third consultation with residents on the delivery of thousands of new jobs and homes.

The consultation, expected to begin in February, is on the updated Area Action Plan – or AAP – and we will be asking residents to take a look at it again and give us feedback - writes

The AAP is a planning document that shows which locations are set to be included in the regeneration and looks to ensure the changes are well managed, and in line with the community’s aspirations.

Through engagement sessions and consultations, we have been gathering the community’s views on a transformed Wood Green since 2015, and residents and local businesses have made it clear they want to see big changes in the area.

This new version of the AAP takes residents’ feedback into account, and gives residents another chance to have a say on these ambitious plans to create 4,000 new jobs, 6,400 new homes and build a thriving, prosperous, green town centre, where current and new residents are proud to live and work.

It also includes updated plans to keep the borough active, including improving cycling and walking options, providing two new open spaces and looking with Thames Water at the potential to provide a swimming facility at Hornsey Filter Beds.

Cabinet also adopted the Strategic Regeneration Framework last night, which will be officially launched in March and sets out the vision for Wood Green, inspired by residents’ previous feedback.

The document shows just how the transformation can be achieved and commits to increasing employment levels and boosting training for residents, delivering growth responsibly – ensuring neighbourhoods are affordable, sustainable and appealing – and revitalising the town centre, so that it is an accessible destination where people want to live, work, shop and socialise.

Cllr Joe Goldberg, Cabinet Member for Economic Development, Social Inclusion and Sustainability , said:

Our ambitious plans for Wood Green will create 4,000 new jobs, 6, 400 new homes and provide a place our residents can thrive in and be proud of. From its vast and varied culture to outstanding transport links, Wood Green has some fantastic strengths, but our residents have made it clear they want more. Community feedback has informed our plans so far and I encourage residents to have their say again, as we prepare for this new consultation.
