Tottenham rubber factory makes way for affordable homes

The site of a former rubber factory in north Tottenham is to be developed into hundreds of new affordable homes.
The scheme, which lies near White Hart Lane Station and will create 75 jobs, includes:
• A primary school that will open in 2015 and which will offer 120 reception places and eventually cater for 420 pupils.
• 222 affordable homes in four carbon-efficient buildings, with all flats having a balcony and access to a rooftop garden, as well as 268 cycle spaces.
Councillor Alan Strickland, cabinet member for regeneration, said: “This project illustrates the scale of our ambitions for Tottenham – hundreds of high-quality homes, much-needed school places for our children, and support for entrepreneurs who want to create jobs for local people.
“This development will bring real, tangible benefits to our community, so I’m delighted that work is underway and look forward to working with Newlon to make it a success.”
