Tottenham high street will benefit from nearly £30 million investment – with around half of this coming from the council’s budget.
Tottenham’s town centres have so much to offer, and this funding will ensure that they remain an asset for local communities in the future.
This funding award from the Future High Streets Fund (FHSF) Programme will enable works to start on the schemes planned along Tottenham High Road; improving the town centres of Bruce Grove, Tottenham Green and Seven Sisters.
Cllr Charles Adje, Cabinet Member for Finance and Strategic Regeneration, said: “Tottenham High Road is the social and economic heart of a vibrant and growing community. It supports retail, civic, employment, cultural, wellbeing, leisure, community activities, housing and more, enriching the lives of residents and visitors.
“Tottenham, just like High Streets across the country, faces real pressure to adapt for a digital age and there is a need to future proof the town centres of Seven Sisters, Tottenham Green and Bruce Grove. This pressure has increased due to the pandemic.
“This Future High Streets Fund investment comes at a critical time and I am confident it will help us to unlock Tottenham’s vast potential and support our wider commitments to addressing socio-economic inequality.”
