Heritage and Conservation Regeneration Projects

Haringey Council has been successfully awarded grant funding to support various heritage and conservation projects, including those listed below. We are aiming to create economic vitality and places where people want to live, work and visit.

Working in partnership with the local community and external bodies such as Historic England, Heritage Lottery Fund and the GLA, the council has completed a raft of improvements.

Current Projects

North Tottenham Townscape Heritage Initiative (THI) 2015 - present


The Townscape Heritage Initiative is a National Heritage Lottery Funded (NHLF) programme to restore historic buildings in North Tottenham. The scheme will preserve and enhance the special character and appearance of the conservation area along Tottenham High Road, by carrying out vital building conservation repair works to improve the external fabric of key buildings and shop fronts.

Objectives of the project include: 

  • Improve the appearance of historic buildings with good quality design and encourage people to shop
  • Provide opportunities for local people to learn about the heritage of Tottenham and become involved in its restoration and maintenance
  • Create an attractive environment that people can take pride in

Programme delivery is divided into two phases

Phase One: permission to start construction was granted on 3 July 2017 and practical completion of the conservation works to 14 historic properties was achieved in June 2018. The total construction costs for Phase One totalled £1,140,487.

Phase Two: There is a programme of enhancements expected for:

  • 775 High Road - repairs to the external facade and shop front improvements (including signage)
  • 785 High Road - repairs to the external facade and shop front (including signage)
  • 781 High Road - restoration of entrance adjacent to shop front (Betfred)

Under Phase Two Cuttle Construction have been awarded the Principal Contractor role on the project. Cuttle commenced works as of 14 September 2020. With scaffolding erected, Cuttle have begun to open-up the shop front facades with restoration works being undertaken. Works are scheduled for completion by early 2021.


The Townscape Heritage Initiative is a joint funded venture between the National Heritage Lottery Fund, Haringey Council and property owners who are recipients of the restoration works. For each restoration project, property owners are expected to contribute 15% of the total construction costs, with the remaining capital costs met by Haringey Council and the National Heritage Lottery Fund. The total budget envelope for Phase One and Phase Two is circa £2.3m.

Shutter Replacement Project 2008

The local shopping centre was improved by removing external solid shutters that hide shop fronts, attract graffiti and make the area look and feel run down, discouraging people from visiting the area.

This work was carried out at the following locations:

  • Archway: 164, 212, 216, 224, 228, 230 & 238 Archway Road – [completed 2008]
