Broadwater Farm

Broadwater Farm is an 18-hector council owned housing estate next to Lordship Recreation Ground. Inspired by Le Corbusier, construction completed in the early 1970’s and comprises of a series of concrete blocks and towers.

In addition to over 1,000 homes the estate includes the Broadwaters Inclusive Learning Community (external link)and the Broadwater Farm Community Centre Gym (external link), the Church on the Farm and the Enterprise Units. 

The estate is home to a diverse and strong community who know their estate the best and know what they would like to see improved. The Broadwater Farm Estate improvement plans have been developed in partnership with residents, community groups and key stakeholders.

Broadwater Farm Estate is changing

Haringey Council and Broadwater Farm residents are working together to improve Broadwater Farm estate to make it a better and safer place for the community to live, work and socialise.

We want to shape the future of Broadwater Farm Estate to be a safe, welcoming neighbourhood creating a lively place to be, ensuring quality homes that support the wonderful sense of community and create opportunities for residents to play, work and socialise through improved open spaces and facilities.

Haringey Council has been working closely with the Broadwater Farm community to develop plans for the largest estate-wide improvement programme in the estate’s history including building 294 new council homes for Broadwater Farm residents.

Tagmere and Northolt are being demolished due to structural problems. We will replace these blocks with brand new council homes for council tenants and will carry out improvements to other blocks on the estate to strengthen them and make sure they all meet modern fire and safety standards.

The Council has also consulted with the 24 households in the Stapleford north wing as to whether this block should be demolished. 62% of residents in this block were supportive of this proposal and Stapleford north wing will also be demolished (in the future).

Together, we will bring about the most wide-reaching improvements to the estate since it was built over 50 years ago.
