Revised plans to transform the High Road West area of Tottenham have been given a £90million plus funding boost from Mayor of London Sadiq Khan.
The additional funding means the number of council homes for council rents at the site is at least trebled to 500, and we can deliver on local people’s priorities for better homes, open spaces, new job opportunities and community facilities.
The homes that are available to buy will be made available for sale to people living in Haringey first and foremost. We want them to be marketed in Haringey before they are marketed in Hong Kong.
Cllr Joseph Ejiofor, Leader of Haringey Council, said: “I’m delighted that we have been successful in securing over £90million of funding from the Mayor to kickstart our revised plans and deliver more than 500 council homes to be let at council rents.
“This great news means we are an important step closer in our ambition to provide new, high quality council homes to all existing tenants, including all eligible temporary tenants on the Love Lane Estate that want one. Plus, there will be new council homes available to residents on the housing waiting list.
“I have been clear that when any part of Haringey is being redeveloped the existing community must be an integral part of the neighbourhood’s future. I am proud that as a result of the Mayor agreeing this additional funding, that is exactly what we will deliver at High Road West.”
