Welcome to our Website

The Tottenham Civic Society was established in April 2006 following mounting public concern about inappropriate redevelopment proposals for the Tottenham High Road Historic Corridor and a desire for something better.  We have been greatly encouraged in our efforts by the commitment of Haringey council and Tottenham's traders to the regeneration and rebuilding of the High Road following the events of August 2011.

The Society's aims, as set out in its constitution, are as follows:

  1. To promote high standards of planning and architecture in Tottenham;
  2. To educate the public in the geography, history, natural history and architecture of Tottenham;
  3. To secure the preservation, protection, development and improvement of features of historic, environmental or public interest in Tottenham;
  4. To work to improve the quality of life for everyone in Tottenham; and
  5. To encourage the appropriate and sustainable regeneration of Tottenham.

The Society's full constitution can be read here.

In addition to our other activities -- see our newsletter page and the programme of events we organise for the Society and interested members of the public -- we respond to planning applications lodged with Haringey council where we consider that a proposed development could have an adverse effect on Tottenham's conservation areas, or on the grain and nature of the High Road and its surrounding residential streets, and where we consider that a proposal will be inappropriate by virtue of its height, massing, or architectural finish.  Copies of our responses can be found here.

We hope that visitors to this website -- members of the Society, visitors to Tottenham, internet surfers in general -- will enjoy these pages as both a source of information and a useful resource for discovering more about Tottenham beyond the way it is sometimes reported in the media.
