Two-thirds of the St Ann’s Hospital site was due to be sold for a private housing development, in a proposal that took no account of the needs of local people at a time of severe housing need. The St. Ann’s Redevelopment Trust (StART) are a group of Haringey residents and workers who want to see the St Ann’s Hospital site used for permanently and genuinely affordable homes, promoting health and well-being, and creating a green neighbourhood.
The GLA purchased the land from the NHS, and StART have worked with the GLA to influence a community-led development on the site. The GLA are seeking development partners for the site including a requirement for at least 50 CLH homes.
How we’re helping
We are funding StART to develop tenure mix options and development options for the CLH homes on the site.
