Homes for Haringey and Haringey Council will be investing nearly £250 million to improve council homes in the Borough over the next five years under a new Asset Management strategy.

These major works will improve over 13,500 homes in the Borough and over 6,500 residents will benefit from the first phases of work, which will start from autumn 2019.

Alongside this, Homes for Haringey have also identified £22.3 million of internal works in communal areas, which will be delivered over the next four years.

The new strategy sets out Homes for Haringey's plans for maintaining and improving homes over the next five years. It takes a wider and longer-term view than was possible under the previous Decent Homes programme.

It will also take a more estate-based approach, including ear-marking funding for improved communal areas.
