[First look] Landolt + Brown has won planning permission for this project to overhaul Tottenham Hale Station in north London
The high-profile regeneration project was approved by local authority Haringey Council’s planning committee last night.
The scheme creates a new larger concourse, improved step-free access for passengers and a new footbridge entrance for local residents of nearby Hale Village.
Planned to complete in 2017, the project is part of a £110 million investment in the district which was the epicentre of unprecedented city-wide riots in the summer of 2011.
Other improvements planned for the area also include a redesigned bus station – also by Landolt + Brown – set to complete this winter and a programme to remove Tottenham’s one-way road gyratory which finishes next month.
Councillor Alan Strickland, cabinet member for regeneration and housing, said: ‘This landmark station will support the wealth of major regeneration schemes already underway in Tottenham Hale, making it one of the capital’s most exciting places to live and work.’
He contined: ‘Tottenham is brilliantly connected to the rest of London, and we want to make the most of that to build better housing, create more jobs and make it easier for our residents to find long-lasting employment.’
