West Green Place Secured for Pocket Living


A resolution to grant planning permission has been secured for West Green Place, a mixed-use development in Tottenham by developer Pocket Living. This will be the company’s largest development to date and their first in the London Borough of Haringey.

A heated planning committee meeting was well attended by local opposition groups but the committee members voted in favour of the scheme, with only one member voting against.

The development will provide 16 new townhouses and 110 apartments ranging from three to five storeys in height with high quality landscaping, which will integrate into the adjoining Downhills Park. A high proportion, 78% of the scheme, will be affordable homes for those who do not qualify for social or affordable rent but cannot afford to purchase a home outright. The proposal also involves a Metropolitan Open Land (MOL) swap and new accesses to the adjacent Downhills Park.

“We are very pleased to have secured a resolution to grant planning permission for this exciting development which will provide much needed affordable housing in the east of the borough.”

The scheme to redevelop this brownfield site was designed by HTA Design with landscaping by B|D Landscape Architects. Following a design competition, Dyvik Kahlen Architects were appointed to design the new community facility and nursery to rehouse the existing uses on the site.

The application will now be referred to the Greater London Authority and Secretary of State before a final decision is issued.
