Seven Sisters Regeneration

Welcome to Seven Sisters Regeneration

Since planning permission was granted in 2012 for the Seven Sisters Regeneration Project, Grainger Seven Sisters Limited (Grainger) has been working with Haringey Council to initiate work on the agreed plans and pave the way for this investment in Seven Sisters. Both the Council and Grainger are committed to this development and look forward to getting it underway as soon as possible.

What is the Seven Sisters Regeneration Project?

If you’re not already aware, the Project involves the redevelopment of the area above Seven Sisters tube station between Tottenham High Road, Seven Sisters Road, Suffield Road and West Green Road. The Wards Store closed in 1972 and has been partly empty ever since, becoming both symptom and cause of the area's decline.

The permitted scheme involves the provision of:

  • 196 new homes
  • Commercial space for both national and local retail traders
  • A new Seven Sisters Market of equivalent size, run by an experienced indoor market operator (subject to ongoing discussions with market traders to establish a relocation plan whilst construction is ongoing).
  • One café or restaurant at first floor level
  • Two kiosks and a public space around the entrances to the tube station

As part of the plans, the project, once complete, will:

  • Create 160 full-time jobs supported by new employment space
  • Deliver 70 full-time jobs indirectly created or induced by the development
  • Create £2.1 million per year of net additional residents’ spending within local shops or services
  • Rejuvenation of the high street, bringing back high street names as well as the provision of new premises for independent businesses
  • 196 much needed new homes
  • Create of a safe and active public area and a new focal point for the community
  • Contribution to the wider regeneration of the Seven Sisters area

What is happening now?

We have been actively engaging with those with property interests (as well as other interested parties) to assemble the remaining land within the site boundary in order to facilitate the delivery of the Seven Sisters Regeneration Project. Whilst Grainger either own or have ongoing arrangements in place to assemble much of the site, there still remain interests to be acquired.

The Council made a decision in November 2015 to support the use of a Compulsory Purchase Order (CPO) to assist with the delivery of the scheme and enable the Council (working with Grainger) to assemble the land to facilitate the project. Please also see the ‘CPO information’ tab above for more information.

The Council published the CPO on 23rd September, and following a 35 day consultation (which ended on 28 October 2016) for affected parties to lodge responses, the Department for Communities and Local Government considered the comments made on the Order. The Council received a notification dated 22nd December 2016 advising that the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government had decided to hold a public local inquiry into the Wards Corner CPO. The date for the public inquiry is still to be announced.

The Council submitted its Statement of Case to the Secretary of State on 2 February 2017. The Council and Grainger will continue engaging with objectors as far as possible with a view to securing the withdrawal of objections submitted. If having considered the Statement of Case, you would like to discuss withdrawing your objection, please contact Barbara Wright by calling 020 8489 3651 or e-mailing barbara.wright@haringey.gov.uk or alternatively, the Department for Communities and Local Government by e-mailing: npcu@communities.gsi.gov.uk quoting reference: APP/NPCU/CPO/Y5420/77066 and the title of the Order.
