Redevelopment plans for Tottenham's West Green Road unveiled by Haringey Borough Council
Haringey Borough Council has unveiled plans for £50,000 improvements to a shopping street in Tottenham.
The council has been working with the Tottenham Traders Partnership, the arts group Make-Room and Tom Ebdon Architects to redevelop West Green Road.
Ideas include sprucing up shopfronts by erecting large, colourful signs featuring the street’s name and cleaning up the rail bridge with dedicated billboards for local art.
Plans also include a blue plaque scheme recognising famous figures from the area.
The street could also become greener with mini-parks in empty rail land, an urban orchard, more flowers and plants lining the pavement and walls.
A consultation has been launched by the council so that businesses and residents can give their opinions about the plans.
An exhibition of what the ideas could look like, based on initial discussions with businesses earlier this year, is at West Green Road Post Office until Friday May 31.
Councillor Alan Strickland, cabinet member for economic development, said: “Creating a cleaner, greener West Green Road to support businesses and boost trade is an important part of the major regeneration of Tottenham.
“We want to make sure the street is welcoming for visitors and easy to navigate so that more people experience the great variety of shops and businesses.
“I encourage residents and traders to have their say so we know what changes the community would like to see and what ideas they like.”
The authority won funding from the High Street Innovation Fund for improvements to the section of the street between the High Road and Lawrence Road.
The consultation will continue until June 7. Ror more information visit www.haringey.gov.uk/westgreenroad
