A new Tottenham Green

Completed in February 2015, Tottenham Green has had a £1.5million makeover creating a ‘civic heart’ of Tottenham at the Green.

Improvements include:

  • A new network of paths
  • Significant changes to levels, with the Green becoming flatter in the centre with more pronounced banking along the High Road edge
  • A new central space for events to take place on the Green
  • Improvements to Town Hall Approach Road, with new paving, tree planters and seating and traffic reduction
  • Better lighting within the Green, and up -lighting of historic buildings.
  • Extension of the Green towards the Grade II listed Old School House at Holy Trinity Church
  • A distinctive new hard surface for the Bernie Grant Arts Centre courtyard, to create a better space for outdoor events
  • Refreshing the East Green with improved surfaces and an informal natural play area, with low fencing

Tottenham Green is also now home to Tottenham Green Market and the Tottenham Winter Festival.

Community consultation

Architects Adams & Sutherland produced the designs for the transformation of Tottenham Green.

Improvements were drawn up in close consultation with residents. The first step in the design process was a community consultation to explore the scope of the project. The consultation, led by the Prince’s Foundation for the Built Environment, took place in June 2012 and the Tottenham Green community engagement presentation and report - 9 July 2012 (PDF, 9MB) was produced.

Further consultation and stakeholder engagement continued into January 2013 and people were given an opportunity to have their say on initial plans and design ideas through the Tottenham Green consultation leaflet (PDF, 635KB).

The results were published in Tottenham Green regeneration project - Summary of consultation responses, December 2012 (PDF, 641KB).
