HEN17 Residents Group for Hartham Road, Elsden Road and Newlyn Road
Who we are
We are a Tottenham based group of local residents living on Hartham, Elsden and Newlyn Road. Anyone living on these roads (or close by) is welcome to join us. The more the better! We are proud of where we live and want to do everything we can to improve the physical characteristics of the area and the way in which local people connect with each other. We have a Committee of 11 residents and we're always looking for people who want to get involved. Anyone who lives in the area can automatically be a member. There is no fee and no commitment needed.
What are we trying to do?
We would like to grow into a group that represents the interests of all residents. There are approximately 160 properties with several hundreds of people living, working and enjoying their leisure time in the area. Our aim is to work together to improve the area by connecting people, social activities, environmental actions, representing residents in local planning issues, or offering information advice and guidance. We want to take part in local debates, tackle current issues and plan for things in the future.
A few important things about the group:
What have we been up to ?
We held our first resident group meetings in winter 2022 and have used the time to gradually grow our base of members. We did this by speaking to people face to face, mobile phone groups and social media. We held our first Street Party on Monday 29 May 2023 and then our second on Monday 28 August 2023. Both events were well attended with over 100 visitors at each and positive feedback.
Autumn planter building 2023 - Pumpkins and planters

HEN17 represents three roads in the N17 area south of Bruce Castle Park. The area is currently accessible from Lordship Lane with the west end of Hartham Road closed off by a Fire Gate and it's east side blocked by the LTN barrier.
Bruce Castle Ward Councillors listen and support.
We would encourage residents to get to know the Councillors by contacting them or attending their face to face surgeries. Show them how proud we are of our area! Be vocal, be kind and respectful.
