Arup’s High Road West Masterplan is part of the London Borough of Haringey’s overarching strategy for change in Tottenham following the London riots of 2011.
The vision for High Road West is to create a vibrant, attractive and sustainable neighbourhood and a new sports and leisure destination for North London. Our challenge was to balance the demands and diversification of housing, increasing dwelling numbers and mix without losing Tottenham's socially driven housing character.

Better housing, more job opportunities; a safer, greener community
Our masterplan concept is driven by an alignment of existing significant historic and socially important buildings and features to create a sequence of places that increase density and activity, whilst retaining local character and scale, linked by a new north to south route that forms the spine of the neighbourhood.
The plan evolved over three years of close community consultation, designing a range of homes in a fine grain of workspaces, community facilities and pedestrian public space to layer the urban experience.
With a brand new park, ample space for local entrepreneurs to start up businesses and huge improvements to White Hart Lane station, the future of High Road West is a place that helps every family have the best chances to fulfil their potential.
"With the backing of local people, we have a once-in-a-generation chance to transform the opportunities for people in Tottenham. These plans will help us seize that opportunity"
Cllr Alan Strickland, London Borough of Haringey
Strategy for regeneration
Examples of spaces that will be delivered include Peacock Park and Moselle Square, a high quality hard landscaped public space connecting the high road with new leisure and retail facilities including a new library, a cinema, cafes and bars.
Our work, along with other masterplans, transport, business and housing studies is contributing to Haringey Council's long-term plans for change in North Tottenham. Between now and 2025, 5,000 jobs will be created, 10,000 homes will be built and more green public space will become part of the landscape, making it a better place to live and work.
