The "preferred option" Development Management DPD

We consulted on a "preferred options" draft Development Management DPD (PDF, 2MB) from Monday 9 February to Friday 27 March 2015

The consultation draft addressed concerned from local people about access to housing across the borough, and the number of homes being converted into smaller flats and apartments – which has increased in the last 20 years. Residents also made clear that they are concerned about the proliferation of betting shops and takeaways in the borough, and that more should be done to protect Haringey’s heritage. It’s also important that land used for employment is protected and expanded so that there is enough space for the right type of businesses to open new buildings and create long-term jobs for residents.

Other changes in that draft of the document included new measures with the aim of:

  • Providing a broader range of housing options, including new affordable housing that helps more people onto the housing ladder
  • A family housing protection zone in the east, and parts of the west of the borough, to stop larger homes being converted into flats and houses of multiple occupation
  • Ensuring that new developments have high-quality building design
  • Introducing strict rules on basement developments to stop unsociable or ugly underground extensions
  • Tackling clusters of betting shops by stopping new stores from opening if five per cent of shops in the area are already bookmakers
  • Protecting Haringey’s open spaces and ensuring local people have access to them
  • Protecting Haringey’s historic pubs by only allowing redevelopments when all other options to save the business have been exhausted
  • Ensuring new development supports the borough’s carbon reduction targets
  • Managing the consequences of development – including the risk of flooding

Supporting Information

An interim Sustainability Appraisal (SA) report (PDF, 1MB) has been prepared alongside the Plan. Information on this SA is also included within the summary of four Interim Sustainability Appraisals (PDF, 418KB). The council has undertaken research to inform these policy documents, which form the evidence base. See the Evidence Base page to view these reports.
