Northumberland Park development praised for its 'important contribution' to Tottenham regeneration
A Haringey politician has praised a new affordable housing scheme in Northumberland Park for making an “important contribution” to Tottenham’s regeneration.
Councillor Alan Strickland and councillor John Bevan officially opened the Berland Court, which is complete with 34 homes and next to Northumberland Park station.
Cllr Strickland, cabinet member for economic development and social inclusion, said: “Providing high quality housing is a key aim for our regeneration plans in Tottenham, and Berland Court makes an important contribution to this.
“I was delighted to officially open Berland Court, which will make quality modern housing affordable for local families and key workers.”
The site, which has been developed by the Newlon Housing Trust, is also home to a Spurs shop which is open on match days and a Jehovah’s Witness hall.
The housing development, which is already full, provides 22 affordable homes for families and 12 for key workers – including staff working in education, health services, emergency services and the armed forces.
Tottenham Hotspur finance director Matthew Collecott was also present on Wednesday to highlight the club’s commitment to local regeneration.
