Genuinely Affordable Housing

The housing development helps meet the needs of local people faced with a severe housing crisis in London by providing housing at a third of median wages in Haringey.

Health and wellbeing

With the redevelopment taking place on the site of St Ann’s Hospital, StART plan to advocate for NHS and mental health services to be integrated into the fabric of its development plans.
