Haringey Council £40m regeneration

Monday March 4th, 2013

Government Opportunities (GO)Haringey Council has committed to strengthening the local economy, while also helping to ease the pressure on families, by freezing council tax for the fourth consecutive year.

Last night’s Full Council meeting saw plans approved to invest more than from its capital budget in providing new homes, investing in town centres, modernising schools, and improving roads and footpaths across the borough.

The investment will allow Haringey’s residents and businesses to make the most of regeneration opportunities and will stimulate economic growth through successful business and more jobs for local people.

Strengthening Haringey’s economy is central to the council’s One Borough One Future ambition to improve quality of life for all residents through thriving neighbourhoods and stronger job prospects.

Budget highlights include:

A £6.5m borough-wide cash injection to repair and improve footpaths and roads.

£2.45m for new affordable housing, supported living schemes and improvements to existing homes.

£1.5m to bring empty homes back into use.

A £3m package including a contribution from the GLA to improve shopping areas around Tottenham Green, Bruce Grove and local markets.

£5.3m for better roads and residents’ parking around Northumberland Park and the Tottenham Hotspur stadium development.

In addition, the council will work with the GLA to deliver a £3.6m redesign of the heart of the borough’s Wood Green High Road, including improving pavements outside shops, putting pedestrians and cyclists first, and installing new street lighting and trees.
