Response to the Royal Court of Justice's judgement following a judicial review of the Haringey Development Vehicle
We welcome the court’s findings which very clearly states that permission to proceed with the claim for judicial review is refused on all grounds.
We’ve been clear that we are committed to delivering the new homes, jobs and community facilities that local people have told us they want to see. The partnership would enable us to build 6,400 new homes and create thousands of new jobs, as well as delivering a wide-ranging programme of community projects - such as re-built state-of-the-art schools; new parks and open spaces; training and apprenticeships, and health and wellbeing projects - that would enable everyone in Haringey to take advantage of all the opportunities this could bring.
Following the decision taken by Cabinet in July 2017, establishing the HDV remains the Council’s agreed approach to providing much needed homes and jobs on its own land and Lendlease remains the Council’s preferred partner.
Last week, the Leader of the Council, Cllr Claire Kober, explained that she does not intend to take the final decisions required for the setup of the HDV prior to the start of the pre-election period which begins on 26 March. Whilst we are very pleased that the court has supported the Council’s position, we are still working on the basis that the final decision to establish the HDV will be taken by a future administration.
