During October and December 2017 your Community Engagement Officers Eduardo and Chanelle, were out knocking on doors to talk to you about your estate. They also invited everyone to come along to one of the eight trailer sessions held in various locations across the estate.
They were on hand to answer your questions and discuss your priorities and concerns about the possibility of estate renewal in Northumberland Park.
You said, we did!
You said: residents wanted better communication with the Council and regular updates on the redevelopment plans for Northumberland Park
We did: we knocked on your doors and held an engagement drop in session for residents to ask questions and find out information. We also sent out information cards with the names and contact detail of your community engagement officers so you could remain in contact with them, throughout the process. We wrote to you to invite you to one of the eight trailer drop-in sessions.
You said: you wanted feedback on the questions raised at the drop in sessions
We did: we sent a response letter detailing the most common issues raised in your area together with responses to questions and concerns raised by your neighbours. We continue to be available to answer your questions. We want to talk to everyone in the area and we do encourage residents contact us directly to keep up to date about proposals for Northumberland Park.
Our commitments to you
Over the next year, we are committed to the following initiatives and investments to improve the lives of those on the estate.
Investing to improve safety and reduce ASB
Working collaboratively with the Police, your local Community Safety team will deliver joint initiatives to tackle crime and anti-social behaviour.
In collaboration with Homes for Haringey, we will be rolling out Estate Watch on the estate following success at Love Lane. CCTV cameras have been installed in Stellar House where activity will be monitored 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Intercom systems enable direct and instant contact to tackle any anti-social behaviour. There is a direct link to the police for more serious incidents. Door security is also being improved.
The MET Police’s Operation Marlin is underway on Northumberland Park.
The council initiative of supporting Community Safety and Wellbeing Champions will continue. The champions meet monthly to consider and plan outreach projects to enable residents to take ownership of their local area and build a sense of civic pride. They also conduct monthly clean-ups.If you would like more information about the community safety programme contact Natasha on Natasha1.Johnson@haringey.gov.uk or call 079769 48433.
Investing in community facilities
Improvement works are under way at the Eric Allin Community centre with the aim of reopening this community facility for local groups and services to use.
Investing in the area
We continue to work with residents, Homes for Haringey, the police and others to identify where the physical environment can be improved ahead of any, more comprehensive, regeneration plans.
Investing in community projects and initiatives
We are following up on the success of last year’s community voting day, where over 20 local groups all bid to receive funding of up to £5,000 each – we will be hosting another event in June 2018. More information on how to get involved is coming soon.
