high road strategy cONSULTATION

Consultation closed

Tottenham Green, the War Memorial, Bruce Grove Bridge, West Green Road Pocket Park, Holcombe Market, new shopfronts and Albert Place are just some of the improvements you will have seen happen along the High Road over the last few years. We asked for your views on what next for Tottenham High Road between 21 February and 23 March 2018.

Draft High Road Strategy

Haringey Council’s draft Tottenham High Road strategy sets out a host of ideas for improving the area. The strategy includes a wide-range of proposals designed to bring social, environmental and economic benefits, including restoring historic buildings; encouraging more people to shop and socialise in the area; reducing congestion, and creating more local job opportunities.

Consultation on the proposals ran from Wednesday 21 February to Friday 23 March 2018, with an exhibition at Marcus Garvey Library throughout the consultation period and public drop-in sessions on Thursday 1 March (4pm-7pm), Saturday 3 March (11am-3pm) and Wednesday 14 March (5pm-8pm), also at the library.

Highlights of the draft strategy include:

  • Improving travel links to make it easier for people to get to Tottenham’s town centres, encouraging shopping and socialising
  • Working with building owners to improve the external appearance of historic buildings such as the former Barclays Bank at Seven sisters, Bruce Grove toilets, St Mark’s Church and the Palace Cathedral
  • Transforming the High Road in Seven Sisters to create a greener and cleaner environment with improved air quality
  • Making West Green Road a welcoming shopping destination with ideas like new paving, lighting and street furniture

In 2017 we appointed consultants Tibbalds to prepare a strategy and delivery plan for Tottenham High Road. The strategy has a specific focus on the district town centres of Bruce Grove and Seven Sisters/West Green Road.

The project team working on the delivery of this strategy are:

  • Tibbalds- Planning, Design and Heritage/ overall project lead
  • Urban Flow: Transport and public realm
  • Marko and Placemakers: Arts and Culture
  • BBP: Economics
  • The Retail Group- Retail surveys and evidence base

The team have carried out a retail “healthcheck” survey with shoppers and traders. They also held two community workshops in November 2017 and for those unable to attend there was a stall at Tottenham Winter Festival for people to give feedback.

All of this feedback has been incorporated into the draft strategy we are asking you to comment on.
