What is High Road West?
The High Road West scheme will bring wide-reaching improvements to the local area, delivering what the community have told us are their priorities. Priorities such as providing much-needed high-quality homes including new council homes, new jobs and employment space and improved community facilities such as the Library and Learning Centre, and new and enhanced green and open spaces.
The council are committed that residents and existing local businesses within any area that we are redeveloping are, and must be, an integral part of that neighbourhood’s future.
What will the scheme deliver?
High Road West will bring the following benefits.
- Target over 2,600 high-quality and sustainable homes
- And 40% affordable housing of which at least 500 will be council homes at council rent with a mix of types and sizes
New community and leisure facilities
- New library and learning centre
- Refurbished community hub at The Grange
- £10m of social and economic investment into the local community, providing opportunities for residents to benefit from education, employment and training
Jobs, workspaces and retail

- New retail and leisure spaces including shops, cafes and restaurants
- New employment space, including light industrial and maker space opportunities for existing and new businesses
- Business support packages in line with the council's Good Economy Recovery Plan.
Public and green spaces

In August 2022, hybrid planning permission was granted for High Road West. The hybrid planning application was formed of an ‘outline’ submission for the entire site, setting out the general principles of how the site will work, and a ‘detailed’ application for Whitehall Mews to allow the first new council homes to be delivered.
As the scheme progresses, there will be future detailed planning applications that will be submitted. These applications will provide further detail on various parts of the masterplan, which will deliver more new homes for local people, as well as community spaces, businesses and workspaces, and public and green spaces.
You can find out more on the dedicated High Road West website (external link).
Where is High Road West?
The High Road West area is broadly between Tottenham High Road and the railway line (White Hart Lane station), running from Brereton Road in the south to the B&M site in the north.
The first phase of the scheme, Phase A, includes the Love Lane Estate and Nos 731 to 759 Tottenham High Road.
The latter phase of the scheme, Phase B, includes the Peacock Industrial Estate, Chapel Place, the Carberry Enterprise Centre, the Goodsyard and properties at the B&M site.
We have made commitments to affected residents and businesses within the area. You can read these on the Love Lane residents and Businesses pages.
Compulsory purchase order (CPO)
In November 2022, the council’s cabinet agreed to use its CPO powers to deliver phase A of the High Road West scheme.
The council approved the decision to make a CPO in order to provide the certainty that the new homes and other community benefits can be delivered in a timely manner and ensure that we can deliver on our long-standing commitments to the community.
You can read more information regarding the CPO and view the CPO documents on the dedicated High Road West CPO page.
High Road West masterplan
The regeneration proposals and plans for High Road West were approved by Haringey Council’s cabinet in December 2014. The council then appointed planning and design experts Arup to produce the High Road West masterplan.
A masterplan is a dynamic long-term planning document that provides a conceptual layout to guide future growth and development. Master planning is about making the connection between buildings, social settings, and their surrounding environments.
The 2014 High Road West masterplan shows potential street layouts, public spaces, amount of housing and where key buildings could be.

In 2017, the Council appointed Lendlease as the council’s development partner and since then the scheme has been further progressed to build on the masterplan. The council and Lendlease spoke to the community about the revised proposals between 2018 and 2021 prior to the submission of the planning application.
Engagement with the community
The council and Lendlease engaged with the local community on the masterplan across spring 2021. This valuable feedback has helped shape the proposals, which you can read in the Masterplan and Whitehall Mews Update Information Booklet (external link). Please visit the High Road West project website (external link) for more information, where you can also provide feedback on the updated masterplan.
Lendlease – development partner
The council and Lendlease are working together to deliver High Road West and the community’s aspirations for the area.
Lendlease were appointed as the development partner for High Road West following a 12-month procurement process. View the report agreed by cabinet on 12 September 2017.
Residents from the Love Lane estate played a key participative role throughout this process and a residents' design panel was set up, working with the ITLA. The panel produced a design guide for the scheme, based on the principals of the Love Lane residents' charter.
Representatives from the design panel, along with the chair of the Love Lane residents' association, formed part of the residents' procurement team who met with all the potential partners. The team of residents presented their plans including; what the new homes could look like, the specification for the new library and learning centre and discussed the wider social, economic and community benefits. Their feedback helped inform the partners proposals and the final submission from Lendlease.
