St Ann’s Masterplan achieves planning approval

6 Dec 2022

Pleased to share that our masterplan to transform part of the former St Ann’s hospital in Tottenham, North-East London has achieved planning. With up to 995 new homes, our proposals will combine the sensitive refurbishment of heritage buildings, community uses and new landscaping. Of the new homes, 60% will be affordable, including Community Land Trust (CLT) and Older Adult housing for women and LGTBQ+. 22 NHS key worker homes will also be included in the plan to ensure Barnet, Enfield and Haringey Mental Health Trust can house staff locally.

Our masterplan design has been heavily shaped around the site’s rich heritage of green spaces and a large number and variety of protected and mature trees. A site-wide landscape strategy will preserve and strengthen these ecological features, with almost all Category A and Tree Preservation Order (TPO) trees retained. The central 1920s public Peace Garden will be significantly expanded as part of these plans, creating an improved setting for the refurbished hospital buildings and new ecological links through to the SINC woodland and Chestnuts Park.

Designs will be taken forward by Catalyst Housing, part of the Peabody Group, and development partners The Hill Group.
