In 1965 Hornsey, Wood Green and Tottenham, 3 districts of Middlesex, were amalgamated to form the London Borough of Haringey.
In the 19th century a great deal of development took place including the construction of Alexandra Palace built primarily for public entertainment. However 7 days after it opened in 1873 it was burnt down. It was not rebuilt until over a century later and opened in 1975. It is now fondly known as Ally Pally. More recent developments in Haringey include the transformation of Tottenham Green in 2013/14.
Get Planning and Architecture has completed projects in this Borough, large and small, in the residential, commercial and retail sectors and has an excellent knowledge of the Borough and its architecture.

Haringey Planning Applications & Appeals
Get Planning and Architecture estimates there are on average 35 planning applications and about 3 appeals submitted to the local planning authority in the Borough of Haringey each week. These are for a wide range of developments from new builds to design and access.
When a project fails to gain permission an appeal may be submitted. We have worked on small and large projects and on a number of ventures with challenging planning constraints. However with over 30 years’ experience in planning and design and a high level of success at winning appeals, Get Planning and Architecture has the expertise and knowledge to assist clients from the initial stages through to the finished design.
A contentious regeneration project at Hale Wharf, Haringey, has been granted planning permission.
Haringey’s planning committee initially rejected plans for the 1.96 hectare Hale Wharf development. There was opposition over plans for a 21 storey tower block overlooking the canal. However Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan called in the planning application. After making amendments including an increase in the amount of affordable housing he approved the scheme despite local objections.
Hale Wharf has been designated a ‘London Housing Zone’. This is a piece of land considered to have high potential for growth and a suitable area for building new homes. Another determining factor in this was its close proximity to transport networks. Tottenham Hale, in zone 3, is only a short walk away.
There will be 505 new build homes constructed. These will consist of family houses and smaller flats. Out of those 35 percent are to be classed as ‘affordable housing’ with a number set aside as high quality rental apartments.
Further benefits include improved pedestrian access and a stunning new waterside space for the public. It will also link to the low carbon energy centre Hale Village and 50 per cent of the profits will be reinvested back into the Canal and River Trust charity for waterway improvements.
Low rise blocks will be to the north of the development but, unlike most developments, the 21 storey tower will be constructed first. The project will cost around £1 billion and may take up to 20 years to complete.
