MASSIVE VICTORY BY THE WARDS CORNER / SAVE LATIN VILLAGE CAMPAIGN AT SEVEN SISTERS, TOTTENHAM!!
August 8, 2021
The property developer, Grainger, has pulled out of the Wards Corner / Market site and the council are at last giving their full support to the Community Plan!!
This is a huge victory against overwhelming odds, following 15 years of struggle – a victory not just for residents and traders but for anti-demolition and anti-gentrification campaigns across London.
The Development Trust are now calling on Sadiq Khan to move quickly to confirm his support for the plan and begin collaborating with the Trust and Haringey Council to implement its delivery.

The Trust is ready to work with all parties to deliver the community plan and calls upon Sadiq Khan and Transport for London to collaborate with us in securing a future for the site which benefits everyone in Tottenham. We also reiterate our urgent call for financial support for affected traders.
Grainger’s withdrawal marks the end of 15 years of neglect, fear and uncertainty for traders, residents and businesses. The Community Plan is a viable scheme which has already achieved planning permission – we hope to move as quickly as possible to restore the Wards buildings. “
