|Tenants must 'access jobs' to afford homes after demolition
Haringey tenants are fighting demolition of council estates across Tottenham. They are meeting 6.30pm Thur 9 Apr @ Cafe Life, North London Community House, 22 Moorefield Road N17 6PY - all welcome.
Their Response to Haringey Council's 'Local Plan' highlights how proposed demolition will drive out existing residents:
The ability of local people to afford the new homes being built, especially in the east of the borough, is dependent on them accessing jobs and also increasing their incomes to a sufficient level to afford the new homes on offer as a result.
(Equalities Impact Assessment on Haringey s housing policies, Cabinet 17/03/15 p62)
Tenants say: 'The Council's housing policies amount to the social cleansing of Tottenham's existing residents.' They are calling on election candidates to support the campaign against the demolition.
