Guests gathered for the opening
Local MP, David Lammy, has opened Vickers Court, the latest part of the Hale Village Regeneration project in Tottenham, to be completed by charitable housing association, Newlon Housing Trust.
Vickers Court provides 174 affordable homes for local families and key workers and is the largest scheme of the 540 homes Newlon has developed at Hale Village. It is a colourful, landmark building designed to a very high specification, standing at the heart of this £400 million regeneration project. All the homes either have a balcony, private garden or terrace space. Residents also have access to a fourth floor communal roof garden and a large ground floor courtyard.
Guests at the Opening Ceremony for Vickers Court, including new residents, Newlon’s Chair Sarah Ebanja, local community groups and councillor Lorna Reith, braved the cold and the last remnants of the snow to attend the ceremony on the fourth floor roof garden.
David Lammy spoke about the importance of continuing to provide high quality affordable homes for local people and praised the positive impact of the Hale Village regeneration project. Sarah Ebanja, speaking on behalf of Newlon, welcomed new residents to Vickers Court and reminded people that the overall £400 million invested in regenerating Hale Village was creating significant new inward investment for the area, as well as providing high quality new affordable homes.
Vickers Court will also provide space for a new community centre to be opened later in the year.
