Grainger PLC (Grainger) have planning permission to redevelop the Wards Corner site. The development site includes all of the land between Tottenham High Road, Suffield Road, West Green Road and Seven Sisters Road as shown on the Wards Corner site plan below. The redevelopment involves the demolition of all of the properties within the red line site boundary and the construction of a new building which will include 196 homes as well as new commercial uses such as shops and restaurants.
The proposed development includes the demolition of all of the houses on the east side of Suffield Road. Under Section 105 of the Housing Act 1985 the council has a legal obligation to consult its secure tenants on ‘matters of housing management’ such as changes to the management, maintenance, improvement or demolition of houses let by them, or changes in the provision of amenities.
This consultation on this ran from Monday 5 October 2015 and ended on Monday 2 November 2015.

The regeneration of Seven Sisters and the redevelopment of the Wards Corner site has been a strategic priority for Haringey Council for a number of years. In 2004 Haringey Council adopted a planning brief for Wards Corner and Seven Sisters Underground in order to help facilitate the redevelopment of the Wards Corner site and the wider regeneration of the area. The emerging Tottenham Area Action Plan allocates the Wards Corner site for mixed use development providing town centre uses at ground floor level, including a replacement market with residential uses.
The Bridge New Deal for Communities and Haringey Council selected Grainger PLC as a development partner to bring forward proposals for the redevelopment of the Wards Corner Site. On 12 July 2012, the Council granted planning and conservation area consent to Grainger Plc for the redevelopment of the Wards Corner site with a mixed-use development including new retail and leisure space, a re-provided market and new residential units as well as improved public realm and landscaping.
The Planning Permission was the subject of a legal challenge, which was disposed of and rejected by the Court of Appeal in August 2013.
