StART is a group of Haringey residents and workers who want to see the St Ann’s Hospital site used permanently for the good of all our local communities. We have initiated a community-led and transparent process for a housing development, which puts local people in control while providing genuinely affordable homes, promoting health and wellbeing, and creating a green neighbourhood.
Two-thirds of the St Ann’s Hospital site was due to be sold for private housing development, with only 14% of the homes classed as “affordable”. The proposal took no account of the needs of local people at a time of severe housing need.
Earlier in 2018 the GLA purchased the land from the hospital, and we are currently working with the GLA to influence a community-led development on the site.
