Popular traders at a historic street market in Tottenham have moved into temporary premises while the transformation of their old stalls into a modern and bustling shopping space gathers pace. Businesses at Holcombe Road Market, opposite Bruce Grove Station, have moved onto Tottenham High Road while huge improvements to a new, permanent market are made by Haringey Council as part of ambitious regeneration plans for Tottenham.

Among the raft of upgrades, which are expected to be completed by Autumn 2016, include:

  • Modern market kiosk facilities, including three new stalls
  • Improved car parking and better signage for shoppers
  • New CCTV to help make the area safer
  • Upgrades across the whole site

The ageing and unsuitable old market was demolished this week as part of the project, which aims to give a boost to existing traders and attract new businesses.

Cllr Alan Strickland, Cabinet Member for Housing, Regeneration and Planning, said:

“It’s fantastic to see the improvements we’re bringing to Holcombe Road Market gathering pace – meaning better stalls for traders and a better shopping experience for shoppers are a step closer.

“We’ve worked closely with local residents and businesses to develop these proposals, and we’re determined to do all we can to show off Tottenham’s fantastic range of independent traders.”

The plans were developed by Haringey Council in close consultation with the Bruce Grove Stakeholder Group, which brings together local residents and businesses.
