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.

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.
In addition to this 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. Following a series of public consultation exercises a planning application was submitted by Grainger to Haringey Council in February 2008.
Haringey Council granted planning consent for the redevelopment of the Wards Corner site on 24 December 2008. However this consent was subject to a Judicial Review of the decision in June 2009 at the High Court and subsequently the Court of Appeal in May 2010.
On the 22 June 2010 the Court of Appeal allowed the appeal made against the decision of the High Court and the Planning permission was quashed.
In 2011 the application was re-determined but was refused by the Planning Sub-Committee. A new application was submitted in May 2012
