Plans to transform north Tottenham have been agreed by councillors in their cabinet meeting.

The High Road West masterplan, part of the regeneration project linked to the Spurs stadium, has been approved after two years of consultations. 

A 5,000sq m public space, named Moselle Square, would be built as part of a walkway between a relocated White Hart Lane station and the proposed new Spurs ground.

A library and enterprise centre will also be built to replace those demolished under current plans, along with cafes, bars and restaurants, industrial units for start-up businesses, and 1,200 homes.

The development would involve demolition of 297 homes on the Love Lane Estate, including Ermine House, Charles House, Moselle House, 2-32 Whitehall Street, 3-89 Whitehall Street, 4-18 Brereton Road, 2-28 Orchard Place, 9-39 White Hart Lane, and Kathleen Ferrier Court.

The council has said secure council tenants on the Love Lane Estate will be offered a “high-quality, modern" home in the redevelopment area, and has promised they will continue to pay social rent, not new affordable rents.

The council says that according to its consultation, nearly 85 per cent of residents living on the Love Lane Estate and 69 per cent of everyone who responded “backed plans for modern homes with a mix of family-sized houses with gardens and maisonettes with private courtyards.”

Under the new scheme, homes and businesses between 731-759 in Tottenham High Road will also be demolished, as will homes and businesses between 6a-30 and 44-50 White Hart Lane.

Businesses in Peacock Industrial Eastate, Chapel Place, the Carberry Enterprise Centre and Goodsyard Businesses will all need to be bought by the council, which has been issuing compulsory purchase orders in the area.

The planned demolitions have proved controversial with residents and business owners.

At the launch of the council's Tottenham Strategic Regeneration Framework in July, Love Lane Residents' Association chairman Paulette Hamilton said she feared estate residents being "transported" out of Tottenham.

Businesses in High Road have also complained about the relocation of White Hart Lane station, saying it will deprive their shops of passing match-day trade.

Patricia Pearcy, vice-chairman of the Tottenham Business Group, said the relocation had always been a “non-negotiable” part of the redevelopment, despite resistance from traders. 

But the council say that more than three quarters of people who responded to their consultation backed a revamped White Hart Lane Station.

Councillor Alan Strickland, cabinet member for housing and regeneration, said: “This is such an important step in the regeneration of Tottenham and I’m pleased to have the support of hundreds of residents as we reach this milestone.

“These plans are significant – a big step towards improving the lives of local families and giving them the high-quality, modern homes they deserve.

“We’ve listened closely to residents and traders during the last few years as these proposals have taken shape, and I’m pleased that first-class new public spaces are alongside plans for new housing.

“With the backing of local people, we have a once-in-a-generation chance to transform the opportunities for people in Tottenham. These plans will help us seize that opportunity.”

The council will now work to secure a development partner for the project, which is subject to planning permission.
