Priority 1 - Housing

Our vision is for a safe, stable and affordable home for everyone, whatever their circumstances

Haringey is an extremely diverse borough, yet the challenge of finding a suitable, secure and appropriate home affects our residents from all ethnic and social backgrounds. As a council, we believe we can help build strong, settled communities by addressing the housing needs of all of Haringey’s people.

The council is committed to ensuring that there are enough homes available in Haringey which people can afford, and which are all of a decent quality across all tenures.

To achieve this, the council will focus on the following outcomes:

  • We will work together to deliver the new homes Haringey needs, especially new affordable homes
  • We will work together to prevent people from becoming homeless, and to reduce existing homelessness
  • We will work together to drive up the quality of housing for everyone

By ensuring every resident has a safe, stable and affordable home, we hope to ensure that everyone can achieve their full potential, and in turn build communities in which everyone can thrive, side by side, as equals.
