In October 2013, the council commissioned independent community engagement experts Soundings to carry out a five-month Tottenham’s Future consultation, as part of its commitment to placing local residents' priorities at the heart of regeneration plans, with more than 3,700 responses. These responses helped form the strategy that underpins the Tottenham Regeneration Programme – the Strategic Regeneration Framework (SRF).
The Strategic Regeneration Framework (SRF) (PDF, 2MB) is a landmark 20-year vision for the future of Tottenham, which sets out how local people’s priorities could be achieved through long-term regeneration. It was agreed by the council’s Cabinet 18 March 2014.
From the community’s priorities – which included access to housing, employment opportunities, education and public transport –the council has identified seven key changes needed for Tottenham to achieve its potential:
- World-class education and training – including new schools, better access to apprenticeships and more Tottenham young people attending university
- Improved access to jobs and business opportunities – attracting major investment and encouraging local business growth to boost employment
- A different kind of housing market – improving existing homes and building new, high-quality homes to meet demand at a range of prices and tenures
- A fully connected community with even better transport links – continuing to improve rail, Tube and bus links, being a Crossrail 2 destination, as well as opening up Tottenham to more walking and cycling routes
- A strong and healthy community – improved healthcare facilities, reduced crime and strong social networks for young people
- Great places – putting Tottenham’s character and heritage centre-stage while creating better public spaces to meet, shop and have fun
- The right investment and quality development – building partnerships and securing money to achieve these priorities with a focus on high quality design
The SRF is also influenced by the Tottenham Physical Development Framework developed by planning experts Arup – which makes a series of recommendations for regeneration and demonstrates how Tottenham could look in 20 years.
The SRF Delivery Plan (PDF, 747KB) focuses on the following four priorities in the short to medium term to deliver the aspirations captured in the SRF:
- People: To deliver improved access to jobs and business opportunities; world-class education and training; and a strong and healthy community
- Place: Better caring for the place and delivering improved public throughout Tottenham
- North Tottenham including High Road West, a new stadium/leisure destination and a comprehensive estate regeneration and housing renewal programme; and
- Tottenham Hale: a key area of opportunity in South Tottenham, building on the delivery of a new station and a range of mixed use development
By 2025, there will be:
- Up to 10,000 new high quality homes
- Over 5,000 new jobs created or accessed with1million sq ft of employment and commercial space added
The SRF Delivery Plan is a living document. Together with our partners we are working hard to realise the communities aspirations. Every summer we update the plan to give detailed project updates and achievements, since the document was first published in 2014.
