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?
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 much needed new homes
- Commercial space for both national and local retailers
- A new, purpose built market for Seven Sisters Indoor Market to operate from
- One café or restaurant at first floor level
- Two kiosks and a public space around the entrances to the tube station
Seven Sisters Regeneration project will transform the site and contribute to the wider regeneration of the area. The regeneration of the site (once complete) will deliver:
- 210 full-time jobs supported by new employment space
- 80 full-time jobs indirectly created by the development
- £2 million of net additional residents’ spending within local shops or services per year
- Rejuvenation of the high street, bringing back high street names as well as six new shops for independent businesses
- Creation of a safe and active public area and a new focal point for the community
What is happening now?
Grainger was appointed as the development partner to deliver the Seven Sisters Regeneration project by Haringey Council in 2004. Grainger worked closely with the Council and the community to develop a set of development plans for the site, which received planning consent in July 2012.
Grainger, along with Haringey Council and London Underground Ltd, owns the majority of the site and needs to acquire the remainder in order to deliver the Seven Sisters Regeneration Scheme.
Good progress has been made in assembling the required land, however there are still a small number of properties left to acquire before the project can be delivered.
Haringey Council has made a Compulsory Purchase Order (CPO) in order to assist with the delivery of the Seven Sisters Regeneration scheme, which will create new homes, new retail, new public realm and employment opportunities. A Public Inquiry was held between the 11th and 28th July to assist the Department for Communities and Local Government (DCLG) in considering whether or not the CPO should be confirmed. This inquiry is now closed and a decision is not expected until the end of 2017.
More information on the Wards Corner CPO process can be found on the Council’s webpage at www.haringey.gov.uk/wards-corner and Persona’s website who provided Programme Officer support for the Inquiry process at http://seven-sisters.persona-pi.com/.
