Our changes to the council’s Strategic Policies are largely factual and reflect how the population levels of Haringey have changed in the past two years, including:
- A target of nearly 20,000 modern, high-quality new homes built by 2026, with a focus on regeneration areas in Tottenham and Wood Green
- A target to increase employment levels in Haringey by 29% during the next 20 years
- A strategy for improving Haringey’s housing estates where simple refurbishment through the Decent Homes programme is not possible
