Delivering a new generation of council homes for our community
Haringey Council has launched an ambitious home building programme that is delivering the first new council homes in a generation, with as many as possible built on existing council-owned land.
For many of those in greatest need, a council home offers their only real chance of putting down roots in Haringey.
Over the next decade, we aim to complete over 3,000 new quality homes.
With new homes being built in every part of Haringey, residents will be offered a safe and affordable place to stay.
Our Neighbourhood Moves Scheme gives existing secure council tenants priority for new council homes being built near them.

All our new homes are built where possible from sustainable materials, are well-insulated and energy-efficient. This can include innovative air source heat pumps, solar panels and the provision of energy-efficient appliances.
Our developments aim to achieve a net carbon-zero footprint and, where possible, seek to deliver enhanced green spaces and biodiversity improvements that benefit the whole community. This can involve extensive high-quality landscaping, new tree planting, bat-bird boxes and green roofs.
Each new development will be built to the highest possible standards, with spacious rooms in our homes and security provisions in our blocks to prevent crime.
Many of our developments will deliver other improvements that will help the wellbeing and health of all residents. On some schemes we are building new playgrounds for children across the local area to enjoy.
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.
One in five of our new homes will be wheelchair accessible and/or adaptable, and we aim to incorporate specific adaptations for households with complex disabilities. This is to ensure our new homes meet their needs and those of their families. In many of our developments, we are proposing blue badge spaces for vehicles to support residents who have caring needs or require accessible parking provision.
Our programme also includes supported housing for vulnerable groups in our borough. In October 2021, we became the first borough in London to deliver new modular housing for homeless residents at Olive Morris Court. The new development offered on site-support to help those residents move into independent living, including employment advice and other support.
A number of our developments will deliver specialised housing to support residents with mental health challenges or who require other health-related support.
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 to 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 have received £189.8m in capital grant funding from the Greater London Authority 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.
We believe it is important that new housing in Haringey is developed in partnership with the neighbouring community, so that it reflects the needs and aspirations of local residents.
Before submitting a formal planning application and building new homes, Haringey Council seeks the views of the community through local consultation and engagement with residents, community groups and ward councillors.
Please see our consultation and engagement page for current and recent conversations with the local community across Haringey.
