Residents on a Tottenham estate will have the final say on a major redevelopment project which would see more than 2,500 homes delivered.

Haringey Council is seeking a final opinion from those who live on the Love Lane estate with the site primed for a multi-million pound regeneration.

The scheme aims to deliver 2,600 homes to the area, more than 3,500 jobs, 1,500 training opportunities, £10million of investment into community and business initiatives and programmes and the creation of work, retail, and business spaces in a revitalised town centre.

Earlier this year, the Mayor of London awarded £90 million funding for the scheme, to enable the delivery of 500 council homes and increase the affordable housing level to 40 per cent overall.

As part of the proposals, the council says eligible secure tenants and those in temporary accommodation are guaranteed a high-quality new council home, at council rents with a secure tenancy.

Resident leaseholders will be offered financial support from the council to buy an affordable home – either on the redeveloped estate or elsewhere.

The council says the scheme will also help solve the issue of overcrowding on Love Lane and means a safe, stable council home will be available to 250 families on the waiting list.

Cllr Ruth Gordon, cabinet member for house building, placemaking and development, said: "We are adopting a collaborative, people-first approach to redevelopment.

"This scheme, which will not progress unless residents vote in favour, will ensure safe and secure homes at council rents. It will keep the community together, protecting the relationships and networks they have formed over a long time.

"Whatever the outcome of the ballot we are committed to working with residents on the next steps. We will always adopt an approach that sees the local community shaping any changes."

During consultation so far, council officers have spoken to nearly 70 per cent of residents living on the estate and have also held eight online Q&A sessions. Meanwhile, more than 1,500 people completed an online survey on the evolving masterplan, which sets out the vision for the area.

Flats are set to be knocked down to make way for the scheme – and under Greater London Authority rules, a majority of residents have to vote 'yes' to demolition before it can go ahead.

TAG Love Lane – a group representing people in temporary accommodation on Tottenham’s Love Lane Estate – has previously called on Haringey Council to guarantee they will receive permanent homes at social rent levels.

The ballot will be undertaken by independent experts, Civica Election Services.
