The Tottenham Hale of today has changed signficantly from 2014 when community engagement started.
There are hundreds of new council homes being built or completed, like Rosa Luxemburg Apartments, plus a combination of private-sale, affordable and rentable new homes. A new health centre is under construction. Transport for London and Network Rail have upgraded the Underground and rail infrastructure, including a new Tottenham Hale station, step-free access to platforms, and a new bus station. Projects are underway to improve green and open spaces including Down Lane Park, The Paddock and Parkview Underpass. There are new shops, bars, restaurants and more.
Tottenham Hale is a vibrant neighbourhood with something for everyone.
There are plans and strategies that are guiding the changes in Tottenham Hale. You can find out more about these below.
From 2014 to 2016 we talked to residents, businesses, landowners and other stakeholders to find out about what they would like to see change in Tottenham Hale. 5 clear themes emerged:
- A revitalised heart – a place with a range of shops and leisure options where people enjoy spending time
- Affordable 21st Century neighbourhood of choice: a mix of affordable and market homes to rent and buy. The social and community infrastructure to support a growing community
- Well connected centre: well-connected and accessible spaces promoting walking and cycling
- A network of green and open spaces: high quality, green and open spaces, which are well managed/maintained, clean and safe.
- A working centre: a good place to start up and grow businesses and create jobs. A mix of job types at varying skill levels
These community-led aspirations for the area are being delivered through the Tottenham area action plan and the Tottenham Hale district centre framework.
The district centre framework (DCF)
The Tottenham Hale district centre framework shows one way we can achieve the community's aspirations and provides guidance on what sort of buildings could be built, e.g. low-rise or high-rise buildings and where they could be built.

Streets and spaces strategy
Tottenham Hale needs to a space that works for pedestrian and cyclists as well as other road users. Our aspirations are to:
- create a safe and attractive network of pedestrian and cycle routes
- reduce the dominance of cars and traffic
- encourage opportunities for community activity
- create easily maintained public realm
- introduce street planting, trees and landscaping
The Draft Tottenham Hale Streets and Spaces Strategy sets out how we can improve streets and public spaces around the area to make them safer, more user-friendly and inviting.

The Tottenham Hale green and open spaces strategy
Suppporting green and open spaces are at the heart of improvements to Tottenham Hale.
We are delivering a programme of physical investment, ecological upgrades and safety improvements, to create a network of enhanced open spaces and green pedestrian links, running from Tottenham High Road to the Lea Valley.
We are working with residents and partners to…
- enhance The Paddock’s design and management, providing new opportunities to explore and enjoy this riverside and woodland nature reserve
- improve Down Lane Park’s sports, nature, play and community facilities, and create new connections to Ashley Road and the Park View Road Underpass
- improve Green Ferry Lane and Chesnut Road with new planting, pedestrian/cycle routes and natural play features
- upgrade Park View Road Underpass to improve the connection to Tottenham Marshes
In March 2017 Haringey Council entered into a strategic development partnership (SDP) with Argent Related.
This partnership combines the land holdings of both Argent Related and the council. Without coming together in this partnership we would not be able to deliver on our promise to create thousands of new homes and jobs as well new commercial, retail, residential, leisure and entertainment spaces.
Tottenham Hale was awarded Housing Zone status by the Mayor of London in February 2015. The Housing Zone investment has enabled us, with development partners, to start delivering a great range of quality, affordable homes in Tottenham Hale.
It has also given us the resources to move forward with community-backed plans to bring forward a fantastic mix of facilities, improved infrastructure and greater opportunities for local people.
