High Road West compulsory purchase order


In November 2022, the council’s Cabinet agreed to use its Compulsory Purchase Order (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 of this part of the scheme can be delivered in a timely manner and ensure that we can deliver on our long-standing commitments to residents.

On 26 January 2023, the council made The London Borough of Haringey (High Road West Phase A) Compulsory Purchase Order 2023 and submitted the CPO to the Secretary of State for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities for confirmation. Notice of the making of the CPO was delivered to affected parties and published in 2 issues of the Enfield Independent, dated 8 February 2023 and 15 February 2023. Site notices were also erected and maintained around the site. The last date for objections was 8 March 2023.

On 5 June 2023, the council submitted its Statement of Case to the Secretary of State.
