Tottenham warehouse fire
This week we met representatives of businesses affected by the White Hart Lane warehouse fire to discuss the support we could offer.
At the meeting we offered to help businesses search for new premises and put together a package of business advice and support to help people get back on their feet.
We will be keeping in touch with businesses directly. Those affected by the fire can continue to contact us at: email@example.com

London Fire Brigade have withdrawn their team and police enquiries at the scene have been completed.
The site has now been handed back to Safehouse and remains closed to the public.
The police have informed us that their investigation is ongoing off-site and they will continue to support Safehouse and their loss adjusters with their own investigations. The cause of the fire at this time remains unknown.
Our Building Control team attended the scene yesterday. London Fire Brigade confirmed that the building is structurally compromised and not safe for the public. Safehouse will now need to undertake any works required to make the site safe.
We have initiated contact with a number of affected businesses and are working our way through a longer list to understand the impact the fire has had and how we can support.
Safehouse have assured the police they will keep their customers updated via their website (external link)

Fire crews have contained the final pockets of fire at the White Hart Lane warehouse and are expected to leave the site today.
The Metropolitan Police have now taken control of the investigation. As enquiries into the fire are ongoing, information remains limited at this stage.
The emergency services have informed us that buildings at the site are unstable and at this time there is still no public access.
As the situation becomes clearer, we will be contacting affected businesses directly as we seek to support them in any way possible. If businesses wish to contact us in the meantime, please email: email@example.com
22 September 2017
The Safehouse Storage warehouse on White Hart Lane remains sealed off as the police and London Fire Brigade continue to investigate Monday’s fire.
There is no public access to the site and it is expected that this will remain the case until at least Monday.
Information on the situation remains limited as police and London Fire Brigade enquiries continue. Please follow the emergency services online for updates.
Police previously said that some residents’ vehicles cordoned off in the area had been released. They urged those wanting to claim their vehicles to speak to officers at the scene.
For residents’ information, there is a taped off area covering part of the footway in front of the warehouse, in order to protect the space around the fire hydrant and hoses. There are currently no diversions to buses or traffic.
I would like to thank the firefighters for the brave work they have done in tackling the fire at the White Hart Lane warehouse. They worked relentlessly through the night and we are incredibly grateful for those courageous enough to run towards the smoke and flames for our sake.
Fire crews remained at the scene today and the full scale of the damage is still being assessed. Our Building Control officers have attended the site at Tottenham, along with the London Fire Brigade and Metropolitan Police, to make sure the remaining structures are safe and the site is secure.
We are truly grateful that no one was hurt in the fire, but we know that some local businesses have been affected and our thoughts are with those involved. Haringey officers are now examining how we can help and will be in contact with businesses as we seek to support them in any way possible.
Cllr Claire Kober, Leader of the Council
