Support Broadwater Farm Tenants

Lobby Haringey Council Cabinet Meeting – 5.30pm on Tuesday 26 June

Haringey Civic Centre. High Road, Wood Green, N22 8LE

On Monday 18 June, Homes for Haringey started visiting residents at Broadwater Farm to update them on structural issues affecting their estate. Letters have been delivered to residents explaining recommended measures for specific blocks, including a consultation with Northolt and Tangmere residents on the future of their blocks following structural reports.

Homes for Haringey is also recommending that Tangmere residents will need to be found new homes while the future of their block is decided. Cabinet will make a decision on these recommendations next week, Tuesday 26 June.

Broadwater Farm Residents Association with Northolt and Tangmere residents are calling for support for a lobby of the Cabinet Meeting to raise their concerns about this proposal. Issues include:

  • Full transparency of information about the problems in the blocks - release the original structural survey reports
  • Independent expert advice to scrutinise the reports
  • The choice of rehousing while any work is carried out - no limit to one offer
  • consultation and balloting over the future of the blocks

Join the lobby of the Cabinet meeting.
