Long-term plan to regenerate riot-hit Tottenham
Proposals for the long-term development of Tottenham have been unveiled, a year after riots ripped through the north London district
A Plan for Tottenham sets out Haringey Council’s vision for the district up to 2025.
This includes quality housing; stronger communities; a vibrant arts and culture scene; a welcoming civic heart; retail; public spaces; and successful businesses.
The report said: ‘Our plan is to redefine Tottenham into a series of distinct, yet complementary, places that draw on their own strengths and competitive advantages.
‘Places like Northumberland Park, Tottenham Green, Seven Sisters and Tottenham Hale will become destinations in their own right with much more focused retail and leisure offers.’
Haringey Council leader Claire Kober said publication of the plan marked the beginning of a journey for Tottenham.
‘The Plan for Tottenham sets out our longer term commitment to building back better and making Tottenham a place everyone is proud to be a part of.’
Last month Gort Scott Architects completed a community hub in a disused yard next to council offices in Tottenham (see below).
The scheme was the first in Haringey to be delivered with backing from London mayor Boris Johnson’s targeted post-riot regeneration fund.
