Premier Inn is set to be the first “branded” hotel chain to open in Tottenham Hale after Haringey Council gave the go-ahead for a £9.5million complex to be built, marking the first major development in the area since Hale Village in 2007.

The 96-room hotel will cater for an estimated 30,000 guests per year from its site in Station Road, currently home to a block of offices known as Image House, which will be demolished.

Work is expected to start in September and take 12 months. Once it’s up and running the hotel will create 35 full-time jobs.

Premier Inn says it will work with the Haringey Employment Partnership and Haringey Council’s Economic Development Service in a bid to ensure local people get the greatest chance of a job, with access to employment and skills opportunities.

The development marks the first major strategic development in the Tottenham Hale Master Plan area since the Hale Village scheme was approved in 2007, and follows hot on the heels of infrastructure works including the overhaul of Tottenham Hale interchange and reverting the gyratory system to two-way traffic.

Alan Gavin, director of Berkeley Square Developments which is behind the project, said: “We are delighted to have secured planning permission for this important part of the regeneration of Tottenham Hale and delivery of the master plan.

“Berkeley Square Developments are continuing to invest in the area and are looking forward to bringing forward further developments later this year.”
