Haringey Homes

Delivering a new generation of council homes for local people

Templeton

Council homes to tackle housing need

Housing is one of our top priorities.

We have an ambition to deliver 1,000 new council homes by 2022 and the first of those homes are already under construction.

For many of those in greatest need, a council home offers the only real chance of putting down roots in Haringey. That’s why we’re delivering a new generation of council homes in the borough.

How we will deliver new homes

Our preference is to build as many of these new council homes ourselves, which can include ‘infill’ on existing estates, adding to existing buildings or using land which until recently was used for other purposes.

After a generation or more of not building homes ourselves, it will take time to grow our team and ability to do this. We are also working with others to achieve our ambitions. This means, alongside council-built homes on council-owned land, we are acquiring homes built by others - either on our land, or on land owned by others.

Paying for the new homes

Artists impression of Templeton Road new homes

The Government’s decision to remove the cap on councils’ borrowing in their Housing Revenue Accounts (HRA) has made a big difference to our ability to deliver these new homes. No amount of borrowing changes the fact that due of the rent levels, every new council house needs hundreds of thousands of pounds in subsidy to stack up financially. That’s why funding for new council housing from the Mayor of London is just as important in transforming how we deliver homes in Haringey. Our successful bid for funding from the Mayor of London means that we will be receiving a £62.8m grant to deliver the council homes the borough needs.

Even with the funding from the Mayor, we don’t have all the subsidy we need. This means we will build a mix of different homes which includes some for sale on the private market. Our commitment is that we will only do this to cross-subsidise the delivery of the greatest possible number of council-rented homes.

Community wealth building

Our Borough Plan also makes a commitment to build and retain wealth in our community. Among other things, this means every public pound spent must provide maximum public benefit. We always aim to buy goods and services locally to make sure that all of Haringey - businesses and residents - benefit from this new era of council home delivery.

Have your say

Coronavirus has changed the way we live, work and play. Based on government guidance, Haringey Council’s face to face engagement events have been temporarily postponed.

We are committed to delivering a new generation of Council homes for local people. To ensure we can deliver the new homes to our resident’s need, we will be asking you to share comments online to help progress some council housing schemes.


S105 Consultations

Under Section 105 of the Housing Act 1985 the council has a legal obligation to consult with secure tenants where proposals may have an impact on them.

Once the Section 105 of the Housing Act 1985 consultation with secure tenants is carried out and responses considered, the council has undertaken its statutory duty.
