More than 1,200 households are having their say on what improvement they would like to see to homes in the Noel Park Estate.

Surveyors are to visit every council home in the estate as part of Homes for Haringey’s project to improve the area.

They will seek residents’ views on how to bring long-term improvements to the area, which is protected by conservation laws.

Councillor Alan Strickland, cabinet member for housing and regeneration, joined Homes for Haringey staff and building surveyors Keegans visiting Noel Park resident Edward Tyler on Friday as part of the consultation.

Because of the conservation status and complex issues with homes on the estate, Haringey Council and Homes for Haringey launched the Noel Park Improvement Plan in November to find a better long-term solution than short-term refurbishment.

Officers have already held one-on-one interviews with more than 500 residents to gather their views to help find the right way to bring what will be complicated and extensive repairs, and over 250 condition surveys have been completed to date.

Cllr Strickland said: “Everyone living in our borough has the right to a modern, high-quality home.”

“While we’re investing nearly £45million in the Decent Homes Programme across Haringey, residents in Noel Park deserve a long-term solution to the complex problems on the estate – rather than just a short-term sticking plaster.”

“We’re committed to speaking to every resident on the estate during the next few months to gather their views on what the future should bring, and I urge everyone to have their say.”

Home for Haringey will continue to speak to residents over the phone and face to face for their feedback before presenting a range of options to the council later this year.
