Upper Lee Valley Planning Framework (unlike in Barnet, it's not an official policy of "roads, roads, roads and roads")


Link to Greater London Authority for documents

"The Upper Lee Valley Opportunity Area Planning Framework (ULV OAPF) was adopted by the Mayor in July 2013. It has been produced by the GLA working with TfL and the London Boroughs of Enfield, Haringey, Waltham Forest and Hackney.

"The OAPF sets out an overarching framework for the regeneration of the area which is amplified where necessary by boroughs’ own planning documents for specific areas. It is Supplementary Planning Guidance to the London Plan and will be used as a material consideration in the determination of planning applications.

"The OAPF sets out 8 objectives:
  1. Growth at Tottenham Hale, Blackhorse Lane, Meridian Water in Central Leeside and Ponders End.
  2. Optimised development and redevelopment opportunities along the A10/A1010 Corridor, in particular the Tottenham High Road Corridor and Northumberland Park.
  3. Over 15,000 new jobs by 2031 across a range of industries and a green industrial hub creating greater learning and employment opportunities.
  4. Over 20,100 new well designed homes by 2031.
  5. Full integration between the existing communities and the new jobs, homes and services provided as part of the new developments.
  6. A Lee Valley Heat Network linked to the Edmonton Eco Park.
  7. Significant investment and improvements to transport infrastructure, including four trains per hour on the West Anglia Main Line and improvements to help people walk and cycle more easily through the area.
  8. A fully accessible network of green and blue spaces which open up the Lee Valley Regional Park. The networks between them will be improved, benefitting both people and wildlife."





"In 2012, the Lower Lea Valley played host to the most successful Olympic and Paralympic Games ever. The legacy of that fantastic Summer is now taking shape.

"Just up the road, the Upper Lee Valley has the potential to offer similar change. It is in many ways a hidden gem. Firstly, an illuminating history full of interest. As an example, Sir Jules Thorne, the founder of the Electric Lamp Services Company Limited bought his first lighting company, the Atlas Lamp Works in Edmonton in 1932. This company became known as Thorn and quickly became one of the largest lighting and electrical companies in the World. All from a base in the Upper Lee.

"Secondly, its existing assets such as the wonderful Lee Valley Regional Park. And finally, its bright future which includes major investment in the West Anglia Main Line and the multi-million new stadium to be built by Tottenham Hotspur.

"Of course, the Upper Lee is not without its challenges which includes pockets of deprivation and I am determined to address these issues. This framework will be used as a basis to direct public sector investment in rebuilding and regenerating communities. This is a joint statement of intent between myself and the Upper Lee Valley boroughs to create jobs and housing opportunities.

"I want to see a busy, thriving community of residents and workers in places that are beautiful, that will capitalise on their industrial heritage, that are fully integrated with their surroundings and which create accessible links to the Park.

"I am therefore delighted to introduce this Upper Lee Valley Opportunity Area Planning Framework. I look forward to working in partnership with all those who can help deliver this vision, in particular the London Boroughs of Enfield, Haringey, Waltham Forest and Hackney, Transport for London, the Lee Valley Regional Park Authority and the North London Strategic Alliance."
Boris Johnson
