The role of the council
How are we doing?
We will enable growth, by securing infrastructure - including transport, broadband, schools and health services.
We will lobby Government, the Mayor and others to plan for and invest in new transport, health and education facilities in the borough and use our planning powers to support growth.
We will deliver growth, by creating an environment that supports investment and growth in business and jobs.
We will promote Haringey to attract investment, and identify priority sectors and support businesses in locating, growing and creating jobs.
We will take advantage of growth, by ensuring that residents have the training, skills and support necessary to find and keep good quality employment.
We will improve the skills, information and support that people get, from primary school onwards, so that they can take advantage of London’s job opportunities.
We will manage the impact of growth, by reducing carbon emissions across the borough with the aim of meeting our 40:20 goal, while growing the green economy.
We will take active steps to reduce the council’s own carbon emissions, and lead efforts to reduce emissions across the borough.
We will support green businesses - including those that help to make construction and existing buildings more efficient.
We will focus growth by prioritising new homes and jobs in Wood Green and particularly in Tottenham, where need and opportunity are greatest, and by bringing some of the borough’s key community assets into more active use.
We will continue to seek investment in Tottenham while extending that to Wood Green.
We will ensure that the people and businesses in these areas benefit from the investment and change in their neighbourhoods, with improved education and employment prospects, better housing, better health and a greater say in the decisions that affect them.
