Haringey reaches major housing milestone
More than 100 additional new council homes will be delivered in Tottenham Hale after Haringey Council secured a residential building there – taking the council almost a third of the way to its target of 1,000 new council homes at council rent.
The ‘Rosa Luxemburg’ building will deliver 104 new homes on the Ashley Gardens site in Tottenham Hale.
The addition means construction has started on 331 council homes across the borough including 131 homes at the Welbourne site in Tottenham Hale, 46 at the Red House site in West Green Road, 23 on White Hart Lane, 16 at Plevna Crescent and 11 at Templeton Road.
The Welbourne site will also deliver infrastructure, including a health centre.
The development on the Ashley Gardens site that has been agreed with Berkeley Square Development forms part of the Tottenham Hale masterplan that will see an estimated £1billion of public and private investment ploughed into the area and deliver approximately 10,000 new homes and over 5,000 jobs.
Councillor Joseph Ejiofor, Leader of Haringey Council, said:
“This is a significant moment for the borough as we take further steps to address the housing crisis that is not just affecting Haringey, but the whole of the country.
“After decades without major council house building schemes,we are now almost a third of the way to reaching our target of delivering 1,000 new council homes at council rent.
“Everybody has a right to safe, affordable and decent accommodation. In Haringey we will continue to work hard to deliver vital homes for our residents.”
