About Tottenham Hale
Tottenham Hale already has many qualities that make it a great place to live, work and play. The transport links to the rest of London and beyond are excellent. The Lee Valley Regional Park, London’s largest green space, is a short walk away from Tottenham Hale station. There is a local community who are passionate about the future of the area. It is also emerging as a location of choice for a growing community of creative and tech industries and is an area where there is a real opportunity to create new homes and jobs.
Vision for Tottenham Hale
Building on these existing assets, our vision for the area is that it;
“Tottenham Hale will be London’s next great neighbourhood – with a bustling new centre, an international transport hub, new homes and thousands of new job opportunities.”
The community’s priorities are at the heart of plans for change in Tottenham Hale.
The council has been in detailed discussions with local people since 2013. Residents, businesses, landowners and other stakeholders have told us about the changes they want for their local area, and five clear themes have emerged:
- A revitalised heart
- An affordable 21st century neighbourhood of choice
- A well connected centre
- A network of green and open spaces
- A working centre

Supporting new homes and employment
Every part of London is under pressure to deliver more homes and employment.
At Tottenham Hale there are significant opportunities to support this demand for more housing and jobs; the area was designated as a Housing Zone by the Mayor of London in February 2015. The area was awarded £44 million to help deliver 5,000 homes and 4,000 new jobs, improve the local environment and links to the Upper Lea Valley.
At present Tottenham Hales is made up of separate neighbourhoods divided by quite imposing road structure.
We want to make movement and exchange between these communities easier and safer by creating a safe and attractive network of pedestrian and cycle routes, reducing the dominance of cars and traffic and encouraging opportunities for community activity.
