Northumberland Park is a ward in the Tottenham area of the London Borough of Haringey, in Greater London, England. It is largely residential, consisting of houses and flats.

Description[edit]

Northumberland Park, the ward, and Northumberland Park the estate are at the north-east of Tottenham, and at the extreme north-east of Haringey. It borders on Enfield to the north and the Lea Valley to the east.

It includes a number of major housing estates – Northumberland Park estate, Stellar House, Altair Close and The Lindales.[2]

Redevelopment plans[edit]

The area has been included in the Tottenham Area Action Plan a controversial program to improve the standard of housing and employment, while maximising the use of the land asset. This acts as a politically approved framework for development by the Haringey Development Vehicle a joint venture company 50/50 owned by London Borough of Haringey and Lendlease.[3] The setting up of this organisation, approved by the Haringey Cabinet was opposed by 20 of the Labour councillors in the 49 member council.[4]

Transport[edit]

There are various transportation links including Northumberland Park railway station and Northumberland Park bus stand, which is served by routes W3, 476 and 341.

It is also the location of the London Underground's Victoria line depot.[citation needed]

Commerce[edit]

There are also a number of shops located at the end nearest to Tottenham High Road. There is one pub currently open along Northumberland Park road, 'The Bill Nicholson', formerly known as 'The Northumberland Arms', colloquially known as "The Billy Nic" after the Tottenham Hotspur manager Bill Nicholson and is frequented by Spurs fans on match days.[citation needed]
