• Haringey Council: ensuring "business-led" development in Tottenham

    Haringey Council has recently said that it will listen to the concerns of local traders over the ongoing 'regeneration' of Tottenham High Road, which many fear is little more gentrification. Many traders have been recently speaking out against proposed demolitions and the threat of higher rents which could close many local family businesses.

    But despite Councillor Alan Strickland claiming that local businesses will have a “strong voice” in the “business steering group” -  which met for the first time at the end of July - the Council has been meeting with the borough's “major” businesses for several months already – and their main concerns do not appear to be the needs of local residents.
