StART: St Ann's Redevelopment Trust
Planning permission was granted for the St Ann’s site in March 2015 for a housing development with a requirement that only 14% of the homes be “affordable”. Based on the views of the community, StART seeks to provide a far higher level of truly affordable, secure good quality housing for local people, especially those who otherwise can't afford to stay in Haringey.
Marlene Barrett, StART Director, May 2018:
“We welcome the Mayor’s decision to purchase the site and work with us. We hope our community can now realise its vision for a community-led development that delivers genuinely affordable homes of people in this area, as well as maintaining the site’s health legacy and green public space. With the potential to build up to 800 homes, the scale of this project is unprecedented and could redefine the way we think about housing in London.”
StART is a group of Haringey residents and workers who want to see the St Ann’s Hospital site used permanently for the good of local communities.
