GREEN AND OPEN SPACES
Tottenham Hale has a fantastic range of green spaces and waterways including the Lee Valley Regional Park and the Paddock but these spaces need to be better connected.
We want to:
- Enhance access to nature and the Lee Valley with improved routes and bridges
- Bring the natural qualities of the Lee Valley into the area (trees, plants, water)
- Invest in the Paddock and reinforce its historic role in the Lea Valley
- Invest in Down Lane Park to boost sports provision and enhance the park’s wildlife
- Keep the Lee Valley wild and green
A Tottenham Hale Green and Open Spaces Strategy has been developed, and is soon to be adopted by the council, to support the District Centre Framework – a new centre for Tottenham Hale, to help improve Tottenham Hale's physical environment.
The strategy sets out how we can improve and connect the green and open spaces in the area, from the Lee Valley to Tottenham High Road.
The Green and Open Spaces Strategy suggests:
- Improving and protecting our existing green spaces
- Making it easier to get to the Lea Valley with new and improved connections
- The Lee Valley will be made accessible and visible through increased signage, tree planting, the use of tree lined routes and raised viewing areas
- A series of new bridges will be important in developing better connections, through new east/west routes. Existing routes across the railway line at Ferry Lane and the Park View Road underpass will also be improved
- Down Lane Park is seen as a key open space which could be given SINC status (Sites of Importance to Nature Conservation) as a major asset.
