August - September 2017
Haringey’s residents are what make our borough the best in London, and your aspirations are at the very heart of our ambitions. We’re clear that regeneration must never be about just bricks and mortar – done right, it has the potential to transform lives.
By creating the better homes; greater job opportunities; access to skills and training, and excellent local facilities that you’ve made it clear you want to see, we’re confident that we can further improve our borough for everyone who lives and works here.
Haringey is not immune to London’s housing crisis – more than 3,000 local households live in temporary accommodation in the borough and too many of you live in homes that don’t meet the standards you deserve.
But we can’t solve these challenges on our own. Limits on the amount we can borrow to fund development, together with the scale of new homes needed in Haringey, mean we have to find another way of delivering the homes and jobs our borough needs.
That’s why we’ve launched the Haringey Development Vehicle – an innovative 50:50 partnership with developers Lendlease that will see council land and developer cash and expertise brought together to deliver huge investment to our borough.
Together, we will be able to bring 6,400 new homes and thousands of new jobs, alongside investment in a raft of measures to improve your neighbourhoods – including a new school; new health centre; new shops and leisure facilities, and improved public spaces.
We’re clear that the HDV will deliver so much more than building works, which is why it will see £8million reinvested in social and economic support programmes such as skills training, and a £20million social fund to drive longer-term improvements to people’s health and local environment.
We committed to championing our borough’s great diversity and community spirit, and that’s why each one of Haringey’s existing council tenants will be guaranteed a right to return to their estate following redevelopment if that’s what they want.
We’re determined that this new partnership will secure the stability, expertise and investment needed to bring change, improvement and opportunity to Haringey to the benefit of everyone who has made the borough their home.
