London Borough of Haringey

Fluid were appointed by the London Borough of Haringey in April 2015 to lead a team consisting of Aecom and Cushman & Wakefield to develop an Investment Framework (IF) for Wood Green.

Wood Green has the potential for significant growth and development that will benefit from the arrival of Crossrail 2 and the area has a number of strategic brownfield and regeneration sites that offer significant potential for new jobs and homes. There is opportunity to diversify the retail and commercial offer, improve the urban realm and provide new and enhanced community facilities.

The IF will inform the Council’s Area Action Plan and will provide a detailed and proactive policy framework to guide development, regeneration and investment over the next 25 years.

The IF will set out a vision for how this can be realised spatially, and will describe in detail the financial practicalities of its delivery including matters such as land assembly, land acquisition, disposals, the cost of relocating the council to new premises and the timing and responsibilities for delivering infrastructure.

The vision is for Wood Green to be known as more than a destination for shopping. The Investment framework will be forward looking and provide for a balanced community where there are places to live, work, play and shop. A network of improved pedestrian routes will unite currently disconnected areas and help bind together new retail, working, living and leisure destinations whilst new landscaping will allow greenery to once again become part of the areas identity.

The team have recently completed the Issues and Options stage which represents the first stage in the Area Action Plan’s production. It identifies the key issues, challenges and opportunities facing the area and uses the four different options to explain how these challenges might be addressed and opportunities realised. The options will be consulted on at a number of events from February 22nd – March 19th.
