Campaigners calling for community-led regeneration of Tottenham will host a conference to create their own plan for the area.

The Our Tottenham group will host the event at Tottenham Chances, in High Road, Tottenham, on Saturday, February 1.

The conference has been organised by residents to bring together a wide range of community groups and organisations from across area.

Campaigners will focus on sharing experiences, skills and knowledge about creating community plans and will begin working towards a community plan for Tottenham.

In a statement, the group said: “Tottenham has so many successful groups already active in the area and the conference aims to harness this energy and enthusiasm to focus on developing viable community plans that serve to meet the needs of the people who live and work locally.”

The group’s charter calls for defence of community facilities, housing, support for small businesses and developing local community plans from a street to neighbourhood level.

The meeting will run from 11am to 4pm.
