Executive summary

This paper seeks approval to allocate the remaining £3,380,560 of Mayor’s Regeneration Fund (MRF) previously earmarked for Tottenham Hale. Approval is sought to transfer up to £3.1m to TfL for the Tottenham Hale over-station development and to release up to £280,560 to grant fund LB Haringey to undertake preparatory work for the Tottenham Hale Green Link project. The proposal is to release funds from the MRF allocation (approved under MD895 and MD1092).

Approval for this decision was granted in principle at Investment Programme Board on 24th July 2014. Approval to transfer £3.1m to TfL will future-proof the over-station development through funding the structural transfer deck. This supports the wider business case for a £32m station redevelopment, matched by TfL, Department for Transport and Network Rail, and housing and jobs targets set out in the emerging South Tottenham Area Action Plan (AAP) and LB Haringey’s Housing Zone.

Approval to grant £280,560 to LB Haringey will develop designs for the Tottenham Hale Green Link project - to RIBA stage 2 for the entire Green Link, RIBA Stage 3 for the green link central bridge and a master plan for the Paddocks Community Nature Park. The Tottenham Hale Green Link project will provide a new 1.2km east to west link from Tottenham High Street to the Lea Valley, addressing the area’s deficiency in access to open space and improving connectivity.
