Haringey Council’s commitment to high quality development is unambiguous: the Haringey Development Charter states that ‘all new development and changes of use must achieve a high standard of design and contribute to the distinctive character and amenity of the local area’.


Substantial new development, including in Tottenham and Wood Green, is anticipated over the coming years – and the council is making sure that it improves the quality of life of those living and working in the borough, as well as those visiting it. It expects all new development to embrace the principles of sustainable design and to respond positively to the character and setting of Haringey’s neighbourhoods.

The Haringey Quality Review Panel has, since 2015, scrutinised major and controversial development proposals – advising applicants, planning officers and the planning committee on how well the scheme meets the criteria of the Haringey Development Charter. 


The Haringey Quality Review Panel is chaired jointly by Andrew Beharrell, Senior Partner at Pollard Thomas Edwards, and Esther Everett, Design Principal at the London Legacy Development Corporation.
